You are one fantabulous woman, Lee! Excellent work for just one person, AGAIN, and I mean the acting of 5 characters, the music, the editing, even take off on Charles Dickens. You have my vote! xo 
"Just in case there are no ghosts." What a wacky and surreal little movie you've got here. 
Nothing wrong with surreal and wacky, lol :) You always surprise me, Lee! Another one well done. 
loved the concept Lee! You are amazing acting, editing brilliant! you have my vote! michelle  
Good job! and funny acting and editing! 
Nice twist on the Christmas theme. Whatever you were drinking, Lee, I want some too! 
Wow! Thanks everyone ( Ro, Dan, Ali, Michelle, Jose and Randy) for the great comments on my video! I finished watching every submission last night, commented on all of them and have short listed 9... It was a VERY difficult job because there are so MANY really good entries for this theme! Now I have an even MORE difficult job of choosing 5 out of the best for me, 9, to finish off the voting process and qualify for the competition! 
Love it! 
Randy ... I made the 'wine' out of really old, powder apple tea. It tasted terrible! I never drink 'real' alcohol during a shoot, but I did have a couple of beers after I wrapped that night. 
Thanks, Benjamin :-) 
This is fascinating in a way I can't quite put my finger on.Truly one of a kind! 
Very interesting film! Original story! Very nicely edited! Im glad you liked my film "Perspective" I hope I grab one of your votes!! 
i liked the concept ! and u have got a great actor because its difficult to do 5 different in a single frame! 
Thanks, Andy! Well, it IS a totally solo production so in that aspect it's 'one' of a kind, lol! 
Thanks Blake! I totally enjoyed making it, even if it was challenging in my crowded apartment. And I hope that I grab one of YOUR votes :-) 
Thank you, -V- BRANG ;-) Thanks about the acting. It's really not all that difficult for me to play several roles. In the third solo one one that I did, I played 9 different characters. 
I like your five characters, Lee! And the addition of the Ghost of Just in Case... I also want to echo what Andy said. As for the fact that you've already watched every film -- wow, good for you, I am just getting started... 
Thanks for the compliments, Hedia! Yup! I always look forward to seeing everyone's films. There is SO much talent in most of the entries! 
I was very entertained! The sudden entrance of all the ghosts was great! I am very impressed by your quality, especially as a solo act. Definetely voting for this, because it made me chuckle :) 
A heady and shambolic journey, with F. Scott Fitzgerald flavour and the many faces of Lee.  
Thanks, Ian! I'm glad that you were entertained and that I made you chuckle! I love when that happens! 
Thanks for your comment, Mark :-) I'm not quite sure that 'shambolic' is a compliment, but I do like F. Scott and have read and have a collection of his books. 
Very interesting film, you obviously put a lot of effort into it. Thanks for your comment, and good luck with the competition. 
The script and dialogue is great!!! 
Thanks, William! Actually, it was less effort than working with a crew and 'real' actors. Good luck to you with the competition as well! 
Thank you, David for your comment :-) Yeah, it would have been nice to have had a 'real' crew, talented actors and better editing ;-) Getting free locations here in TO is an impossibility and my own place is tiny and cramped. Therefore the solo shoots, for now. 
Very Interesting film, i liked it the editing and the music is really good.  
Thanks, KamalDeep :-) I especially love it when people say that my music is good!
