What an ironic short. Fantastic and funny. It was a pleasure to watch.

didn't see it coming

Great job Jean-Phillipe,
I was thinking as I watched it...okay...an old cliché, but it is beautifully and moodily done...the composition is fantastic.....and then the ending.....and I didn't see it coming. Very nice. Great pacing..very entertaining. And it looked so very good. Very impressive. Quite well done.

Really enjoyed your short, Jean-Philippe. Good take on the story, and nicely shot. I like how it unfolded. Good work!

Your darkroom scene brought me back a couple decades! I was impressed with how you lit the room. Very clever use of revealing the images on the photos as the conversation with his wife unfolds.

As others have said, the ending was unexpected!

I think you are in the running to win this competition. But then again, you have already won with the work that you've produced!

Wow, I didn't expect so much and so good comments from you guys, thank you very much!

- Canon XL1 and standard 16X lens (to shot handheld :) )
- Some Britek lights
- Some reflectors, gels, softboxes
- Azden SGM-2X shotgun
- Samson wireless Micro 32 lavalier
- A Digital Rebel (to take the pics, they weren't developped for real :) )
- A Nikon 35mm Reflex used as a prop
- A Cell phone (and no cigarettes!) as a prop
