I think you did a great job, some people dig low light, high contrast lighting.

Not sure low light and high contrast go together

I like it. Run with whatever style you feel best portrays what you are trying to convey to the audience. That's what it's all about - not lighting everything perfectly using 3 point lighting - it's about conveying the emotion YOU want to convey. :) Enjoy your own, unique, style. :D

I thought the lighting was good.

The only problem I had with it is that it didn't really had an ending. I know it was like based off of A Beautiful Mind (lol the music doesn't give it away or anything), but there wasn't really an ending.

I totally agree with Carl. I had no problems with the lighting... actually, I liked it. Use a light kit when the mood calls for it.

Yea, the light looked really cool. I hate when low-budget films try and light everything... It looks really fake.

Hi Loren,
Just thought I'd throw in my two cents. I liked the look of it. I especially liked your shot composition. All except for that last two-shot.. which I thought didn't match the artistic framing choices of the other shots.

Overall, a nice little piece.

There. There's my two cents.
