Wow. This film was REALLY good. The acting, directing, cinematography, editing, etc. All top par. With the music and the shallow DOF, colors, and visuals, I honestly thought I was watching something shot on 35mm film.

If I could though, make a suggestion, it would be the fact that it is very long. Because it is a silent drama, it obviously deserves length. But it did stretch at certain spots. Just a suggestion.

Other than that, I am VERY impressed. Great job.

Inspirational video-making of the highest order.

The music carried the piece along.

The ambient sounds were allowed to breathe into the tonal qualities of the piano and the "other" very atmospheric sounds.

Beautiful .. if not a little sad.

Please don't over-work it with too much further attention to detail . . Remember this WAS the first time I saw the piece, and I feel it is good to go. And yes there is always further work to do on any project.

Beautiful. Good directing. It's not my kind of story, but when it's done this sincere, I can surely appreciate it. Thanks!

Beautiful, atmospheric piece with great compositions and the kid is fantastic, very photogenic.
Although I found the story a little unclear, your film lingers in the memory and thats a really good sign. Your script may need a little tightening but as a director you really succeeded in conveying the mood.
If you want a few editing suggestions from me,
I would cut out the first tracking shot with the books, it's unneccessary and makes the next shot more conspicuous. I imagine it would be a nicer cut to come in directly on the 2nd tracking shot.
If you could get some cut aways of seagulls (shouldn't be too hard) it would really add to the beach scenes.

Amazing cloud shots, how did you achieve them?
Are they composited?
