First great reactions on BIG TIME from Vancouver:
"BIG Time is not just a film for our time – it is a film for all time, both big and small."http://spacing.ca/national/2017/10/02/film-review-big-time-2/

But we also want to share this very personal note from a viewer in Vancouver! Which means a lot to the filmmakers!
I've just come home from watching your documentary on Bjake Ingels at VIFF, and I should've mustered up the courage to go say hi to you and thank you for making that documentary in the way that you did. I love Ingels and the way he thinks without boxes. He's one of those artists that reject conformity in a way that is so elegant and so respectful that it's absolutely breathtaking. And I knew this coming into the theatre to watch this film.
What I didn't know was that I was going to be so taken by how you shot the film, what you decided to show, and how you constructed the documentary as a whole. After the film, I cried and that's probably why I was a little embarrassed to say hello, but as a 21-year-old aspiring female filmmaker who has never had the boldness to make an actual film, I cried because it reminds me that filmmaking is all I want to do. I loved all the creative storytelling elements, especially the way that you visually illustrated the ringing from his head injury and the parts where he struggles with that. I think that while everyone was interested in Ingels, I really appreciate the way you told the story of just an aspect, the human side, of Ingels.
So thank you so much for your brain and your mind and the sheer amount of inspiration you have given me tonight.
