PRESS & REVIEWS

"Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to the fantasy-drama 'Shedding'" -- Variety

"so stunning in its innocence and simplicity that you practically feel immersed in its real world, fantasy-like universe." -- The Independent Critic

"It’s not the technology. It’s not the 'cost' of the filmmaking tool. It’s the person behind the technology that creates great film. And Shedding isn’t just a great film—it’s an incredible film." --   B&S About Movies

"the movie made me think a hell of a lot more than I was expecting to, and I can certainly see the parallels to 2017’s 'A Ghost Story' in the many theories of life that far exceed the physicalities of a body " - The Film Freak

"This film should be shopped to acting AND directing teachers about how truly remarkable performances can and should come to life without a multi-million dollar budget. This movie is different, this movie is unique." -- The Drill Mag

"A strange and beautiful film... I highly recommend it."  -- Fanbase Press

 

"At times absurd, or deeply moving and humorous, it’s a film that explores longing, grief, and transformation from a uniquely fresh perspective.”  - We Are Moving Stories

"Meet Jake Thomas of Benchtree Pictures" - VoyageLA

Danny De Lillo of NFMLA interviews Jake Thomas about "Shedding" -  Moviemaker Magazine
