creative movie for this category! i like the change in emotions shown by the characters! good luck! :D 
pretty different stuff.Good effort by the actors as well. 
Thanks for the comment. Yeah, my actors did a nice job. I give them a lot of control and freedom while shooting. 
Thanks for the comment. The change in emotion is something I was definitely going for. I'm glad it worked for you. 
Oh man, for a minute there I thought this thing could end with someone getting hurt... Loved everything but the slow motion. Your actors were strong enough to not require it. There was some nice storytelling in there. Adding to my short list. :) 
Liked the concept of game here, using emotion rather than words. Maybe the slow motion dragged it a bit? Good luck! 
Hey thanks for the nice comment. I really appreciate this kind of feedback. The slow motion was a choice I made sort of spontaneously, and I like it, but it seems that some people would have done something different. I had it all lined up without the slow motion, but then I decided it needed something else at the ending, something kind of transcendent that really showed the connection these two people were experiencing. Maybe it backfired. Maybe it was too much. I don't know. I dig it. It still moves me. When I was editing the slow motion seemed to line up nicely with my music. The individual frame jumps lined up with the note progression and I cut back and forth on the big chord changes. It has a sort of moving hynpotic effect on me and some, but I can see how it might be jarring and not feel right to others. Thanks again. 
I really really like it. Touching, smart and simple, very very good. I submitted it. I would like you to have an opinion on mine, "the game of life" please have a look an tell m e what you think 
Hey Jon-Paul. What's important is that you made a decision and you're standing by it. Kudos to sticking to your guns. I didn't find the slow motion jarring, I just thought it was unnecessary as your actors did such a good job in their roles. They've got the connection. Once again, I really liked your film. Great work. 
Whowwww. very good. No words. Pure emotion. Congratulations
