Fun piece. Wish I had skills like that. 
I wonder where a peace corps film maker get his locations... this is good, well done. 
Nice cinematography. Well shot and acted Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
Excellent film. Short, simple, sweet. Camera work and editing are energetic and engaging. 
Good cinematography, editing as well as acting! It was funny as well! lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
Great directing! You have great command of rhythm. Good concept too. Awesome! 
Short and fun! Worked beautifully... Cool tricks  
There is a ton of film to follow this. If you havn't already, you need to continue filming this for a feature film. Very enjoyable. 
Funny and nicely directed. Your way to make the tricks is great and the acting is really sweet. Funny, fresh and totally to the theme of the competition. Great! Got my vote Please check my film "The Visit" 
GREAT use of a location. You used black and white really well and most of the shots looked great. Well told story. Good luck! 
Very cool, really well shot. How did you manage to score a bus? If you have a second I'd love to have your feedback on my own short Tricky Health Care! Best of luck!  
Awesome job in half the time. It had smoke & mirrors written all over it... the music added alot too. Very cool and upbeat 
Rion, That was pretty cool. You did a really good job moving the camera to emphasize both the tricks and the humor. It really reminded me of R. Rodriguez for those reasons. I think this filmed worked so well because you filmed it so well. Very cool.  
A really fun and sweet story - very enjoyable, thanks for that! If you get a chance, please check out "No Pretences" 
Very nice, well done. Well executed and self contained. Liked it a lot.
