Inspiration: I like to tell strange stories and this is the first time I have ever used a child actor.

Its an obscure piece, but the fact that guilt can be a haunting experience rings very true.  
Haunting. Interesting story. Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
I think this was very well done. Simple yet haunting. Music went well with the visuals and added to the happenings! Short-listed :-) lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
There is a side to it that can be very personal, I think that is a hard thing to acomplish, but I also think that the treatment you gave to the image could have been a little more careful, because the color parts don't look as well as the B&W.  
Thank you for your comments. I am taking mental notes for future reference. Thank you all again... your honesty is appreciated. 
Loved the backlighting of the father and the music that complemented the underlying emotion. Wasn't sure about the water running in the sink but compelling nonetheless. Randy Hines "Sorcerer's Apprentice: Season One" 
Love the music and that moment of the hand over her shoulder freaked me out. Although I noticed some minor continuity problem in the lamp. It's not the same bulb. But hey, it's a nice story of guilt and fear. Please, check my film "The Visit" 
Bizarre, well made little movie. The second half had some very cool, effective moments. Great work and good luck! 
Hi Waire: Its was nice to been working with you. As a first project that I did with you, I really enjoyed it. I am looking forward to perform in another film soon. Thank you, Jennymar. 
awesome film!!!!!!!!please check out "BEE IN THE WEB" and let me know ur reviews!!!!!!! 
This was interesting! Very simple and effective. Congratulations Nathan! and good luck!! I hope you can see my film Etiology.  
Harder thank it looks. I liked the mix of fear and longing. It reminded me a lot of a David Lynch piece. Especially the use of the B & W mixed with color, and strong expressive sound effects. Very different.  
I really, really liked it! I thought it worked really well, particually with the hand which made me jump. And I really liked the simple but effective shot by the television. Shortlisted.  
What a great message!
