great acting. the shot at 1:16 was really cool! hahah nice twist! - Daanish and David ("home for the Holidays" pg. 3) 
I really liked this but how come you guys are allowed to run over 3 minutes LOL! Good job anyway! 'Home for Xmas' Daniel Stephenson 
That was a great ending! Good luck. . . 
Oh wow, I didn't see it coming!! This is a great little piece. I love the actors. And the pace is really nice. Well done! -Brian ("Christmas in Reno") 
the ending was reallly nice, I think it was good it was there, the film really needed it. 
Nice suprising ending. Loved it. Robert Athey 'The Christmas Tree' pg 2 
though i was a little confused by the ending and who "baby" was, your short was well shot, well subtitled and nicely acted. ("Suburban Holidays", "Decorations") 
I liked how you subtitled this. Great work with the actors, very natural everything, and the camera is always nicely placed. Daniel Barosa (The bedtime of the girl...) 
Like the realistic, dogma feel of your short. Interesting ending. Good luck. Anastasia (at home on others' holidays) 
Your story was really good. I kind of missed some more close-ups in your shots. Good luck. 
Great ending...I loved it! 
Very very sharp and the ending made it stand out extra. Check out "A Tail of Two Holidays" page 3 - James 
Yes unfortunately our shot of the cellphone isn't as good as intended. Simply forgot to think about the fact that it had to be scaled down to pc use. So you can't really see that it's a different name he dials. Btw our nightshots were very dark in the compressed version. Actually the whole film was a bit darker when compressed. Anyone got an idea to avoid that happening? 
probably the best way is to have maybe two f-stops more for lighting than you would normally. You need to have enough key lighting and that should do it no matter how much it gets compressed. 
Thanks. Never thought it would be a problem but then again not that much experience in making film for online use :)
