Shortfilm spotlight: ROOFTOPS

We all know that comic con feeling right? Meeting your favorite actor or actress... finally! That's a bit how the short film ROOFTOPS starts. A guy is on his way to the Rockefeller, when he sees his favorite musician, Rachel. He walks towards her, to ask for an autograph. He's so excited to see her. A great to a movie right? I was instantly enthusiastic to watch more.

Timothy J Cox in ROOFTOPS

The story

Let me tell you a bit more about the story. After the encounter, ROOFTOPS follows Rachel. She has been touring a lot and now she has returned home to meet up with old friends for a day. Rachel has a lot of success with her music. he will be touring again for a while. Being with her friends again, makes her think though. She missed them a lot and it feels so good to back. Just as times begin to feel right again, she has to reckon with leaving again.


Touring & friends

ROOFTOPS sheds light on ambitions, friends and being successful. What does being successful really mean? Is it possible to keep up with everything? Have a career & go for your ambitions. But also be there for your friends and stay connected. Because you are away, of course you miss things. I like the themes that ROOFTOPS touches. 


I enjoyed the energy in the first scene. It showed a bit of Rachel's life as a musician and how popular she is. Timothy J. Cox portrays a great fan. You can feel his enthusiasm! I would have loved to see more of that: Rachel's life as a musician. The movie makes me curious to see her on tour. It seems she's great with her fans. I would also love to see more depth in the relationship between Rachel and her friends. Just to really feel how much she misses them.
