UK Film Review

"Life’s a Show is an inventive short film offering an amusing commentary on the loss of direction felt by so many people as workplaces across the world shut down, as well as how far some are willing to push their need for attention and adoration."

Indie Shorts Mag

"Puttock’s writing is the film’s strongest aspect...

Life’s A Show dips its toes into this pool with a well-worn premise—an out of work actor—but with new circumstances and solutions."

The Independent Critic

"Tapping into the heart and humor of what has turned out to be a global shutdown, Puttock has rather ingeniously crafted an engaging and entertaining 11-minute short film that benefits from its leading trio of performances."
