Spirit of the Season: The Zilex1000 Holiday Film is the seventh short film released by director Zilex1000. The short was released on December 20th, 2014 by Zilex1000 Productions with sponsorship from the Neo-Avant Institution.
Whilst awaiting alone in her home on Christmas Eve in 1964, a young married woman senses a strange, unfamilar presence in the house and begins to suspect someone has come to kill her.
After a revelation by director CosimoValuta revealed that there were a severe lack of Christmas orientated ROBLOXiwood productions, Zilex1000 decided to take up the task of creating a Christmas short. Opting for an unconventional black-comedy method, the short was filmed over the course of two days, with actors Superpenguin55 and Rachelmay1 assisting. The re-introduction of previous characters Nooblet and Blu was a last minute addition, suggested by Rachelmay1. After production was completed, Zilex1000 approached the Neo-Avant Institution with an request for sponsorship. CosimoValuta accepted the offer and the Neo-Avant Instituion became an official sponsor of Spirit of the Season: The Zilex1000 Holiday Film. On the 20th of December at 6PM after the premiere gathering, the film debuted to positive reviews.
The short was mostly received positively on its release.
|This was a wonderful, heartwarming short, with beyond incredible shots. I enjoyed every turn the movie took, and I would definitely recommend it to everyone I know. 10/10!||Moses747|
|If I could do a full review I would, but what would I say? This short speaks for itself! It's pure genius and heart-warming... in it's own way, and that ending had my sides cramping. The only problem I have is that the subtitles come and go too quickly- but other than that; a round of applause to everyone involved with this short, and Merry Christmas! 9.5/10||Rick120|
|Although the film was great in writing, cinematography, acting, sets, etc., the text went by too quickly and I had to repeatedly pause just to read one word. Other than that the film was excellent. 9/10||BATMAN21005|
|Great short, however I did not find it heartwarming. I find it a bit ridiculous how he tried to kill her and then they just watch a film together, other then that it was great. Keep up the good work Zilex. 7/10||coollegodude1|
