Inspiration: Bloodstained Footprints portrays the experiences of a soldier readjusting to civilian life after serving in war zones.

Loved the style and use of color. Voice-over was well written and acted, but I would have liked to see more of the character maybe in another location instead of just the bathroom, splashing water on himself type of scene. But even with that minor complaint, it was still a powerful piece and the production values were top notch across the board. Also, great last line at 1:30 and then the very last line as well. 
very cool - It felt like the beginning of something more. Well done.  
Well made. Well written. All the best. 
This is the kind of editing style I like to have in my films as much as i can. Great sound, great direction, great script and great color grading! 
Very well done, liked the screenplay and the visuals. Nice job. 
A very strong statement, very well done in every aspect! Please watch my 'Surprise!'  
Compelling. Well edited, congratulations. 
I really liked the visuals and editing great job.. please watch my movie "Perspective" thanks!! 
painting!!! a piece of art !!! speechless 
Great cinematography. I liked the stock footage (or maybe it was shot by you) and how it integrated into your narrative. I really liked the editing effects and focus pulls by your DP. Kudos, mate! Check out "Bliss". 
wow, very nice. Great use of stock footage and great editing!  
This film was visually stunning! The story was compelling and the actors did a great job. Well done! Please check out "Speeating" for some laughs :) 
Well Done Marty, made me feel like the mood of THE THIN RED LINE war movie, the colors and soft narration, good luck 
Absolutely gorgeous cinematography in between archival footage. -- Maker of "Vantage" 
I liked the cinematography and the editing music its really good. Please watch my entry, 'Sometimes...'.  
Thanks to everyone who made a comment and voted. I've been wanting to make this piece for some time now. The footage of the war zone was filmed by me on a Sony sky diving camera in 2007. I didn't want the piece to be pro or anti war, just a short depiction of how a former soldier deals with adjusting to civilian life after the experiences he has gone through. Thanks Again.
