dude, the whole thing had me laughing. Not an easy feat. The way the gnome finished with the other guys line, was genius.  
Hahah. Nicely shot and acted. Please check out my film "together again" and let me know what you think. 
I really liked the cinematography and overall look of the film. I'm glad you didn't feel compelled to show the character being shot. Nothing takes away from production value like a poorly executed blood splatter. 
Quite original and at times even funny, lol! Good cinematography. I'm also glad that no blood was splattered...lee~ 'Backwards In Time'...  
Hahahaha... loved it. Funny and creative. Also, the image had a peculiar look that really caught my attention. Great short! Take a look at my short ("Dusk in Limbo") afterwards and please tell me what you think. Thanks and good luck!  
Very impressive. A nice portrait loneliness and what can make to your mind. Nice circle with the final dialogue. Congrats. You surely get my vote. Please check out my film "The Visit" when you have the time. D 
Your actors pulled off a great script, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Too bad about the modulation of audio for the Gnome's voice, but it's the only fault in this fun piece and easy corrected too. Good job. 
“I don’t know if you should be talking right now, lawn gnome” funny stuff! That just got better and better. I’m slightly worried since now have an uncontrollable urge to buy a lawn gnome.  
God damn lawn Gnomes, I fall for their tricks every time! Good work!  
damn funny...way to tie it back in at the end. Nicely edited as well though there seemed to be some clipping in the Gnome's audio. 
Great humor and the dialogue gives the movie a nice pace. This was very well put together and at the same time I was laughing my ass off... very original  
great concept dan!!!awesome acting, specially by the guy wearing green.......though i think his expressions werent quite upto the mark when he just shot his friend thinking it was a water gun but in all very well directed and edited and splendid acting....i love the concept of the figure and voice in the background!!! 
Great job. 
Freaky gnome that is. Things you can make a gnome do these days. Well done film. Wow on the quality too! Definitely super production! 
What a great ending to this story. He was such a victim himself. Great work. Good luck!
