Inspiration: My sister, Ruth Dickson (who plays the co-starring role) and her fiance, Lon Amick (starring)
Other Info: Was conceived and filming wrapped up in less than 24 hours. Had to be re-editted to get it under 3 minutes.

Nice job ! Keep up the good work ! Maxime (The Day the world went away) 
Good composition on the photography. Cheers 
I was impressed by the editing and photography. Very well made. 
Excellent cinematography and editing for a 24 hour film production! 
Thanks, the editing wasn't done in the 24 hour window, but the filming was completed less than 16 hours after the concept was dreamt up (which is what I meant by filming wrapped up)... it was done on the spur of the moment.I recorded the speaking and did the editing a few days later for the initial cut, which was about 5 hours extra work.I had to shortened it for this competition because it was originally 3:40 in length. I had to cut out some dialogue and reduce some of the clips in the black and white showing their relationship before the accident, and then I added the music which was an improvisation I had made up on my (out of tune!) piano.The re-edit took 6 hours (because of how much I had to shorten it by, it took several encodes before I was happy) I don't want to mislead people into thinking the whole thing was done in a one-off 24 hour period. 
Thanks, I also really enjoyed watching yours. It was well produced and the portrayal of death was suitably unique and amusing. 
Thank you - this piece came about as a strung together places I have always wanted to film at in my local area (such as the multistorey car-park/by the cliffs on the beach) - or places I have filmed at before and wanted to go back (by the lakes) - knowing the locations well gave me the opportunity to pull off some effective shots in such a short timescale.Btw, I have looked several times and could not see an entry in the competition by you. I might be missing it but if you do have work on here I would like to have a look. 
Thank you, your piece wascaptivating very surreal. I was not expecting the twist at the end, that only made it even more unusual! 
For anyone interested, I do have a MySpace profile with an older video I made 2 years ago. - if you liked my film feel free to add me as a friend (remember to mention Filmaka so I know it's not spam!) 
The camerawork is really good, love the sillhouetted shots and the Godard style whispers. Well done. 
I agree with everybody else, the cinematography is brilliant !!! Completely in harmony with the story of the film, and that's of course the most important thing 
Thank you, I loved your piece as well. Not only was it unique amongst the other entrants, it was well produced with a cheerful upbeat message. 
Thank you, as I said on your page, I found your piece to be very entertaining with a top notch performance from the lead actor. 
Impressive cinematography, one of the best I have seen so far. The music goes pretty well. 
Everything about this film was great. Impressive what you can do with only 3 minutes. 
good visuals...nice concept...well done...
