Inspiration: What's on the other side of windows, doors, mirrors, framed pictures, cameras, people? Do we see what's really there, or is it all in our mind's eye?

More awesome than ever, Lee! You are one amazing lady and Aiden is a talented kid! Terrific editing. Wish that you could do mine. You definitely have my vote :) 
Interesting work Lee. I admit I got a bit confused with the story line or maybe the idea of it.  
I should say also, that part of this is the other side of the screen, comparing the good and rich childhood life with the hardworking starving artist life with two people, child and adult, who are connected by kinship and love ;-) Is what we see behind (on the other side of the TV screen, windows, mirrors, camcorders, really there or what we WANT to see? 
Thanks Johnny, Lee, Marcio, Rogan & Roy for watching and commenting! I really appreciate feedback :-) 
As always, your work is creative, unique and good to watch! You have my vote! 
I also wanted to add that I had no problem with understanding the idea or story line as someone else mentioned. 
Ali, I've watched most of them now and must say, there's just so much I can take in a couple of days of watching shorts depicting death, sadness and violence ;-(
