My favorite scene? Near the end, when "Papa" moves away from the picture and we first see the faint blur of the bars... WOW!!!
Thanks Lorinda,
Getting the real jail cell, with those terrifying bars was essential to capture the moment to make the story happen.

I don't think is not subtle, I find it subtle enough, just right.
Thanks Mugurel,
The original title was going to be "Papa" Then I realized "Shark Hunting"
would be a more abstarct title, for this film.

Downloaded all the videos over the weekend, but was unable to watch them. Too much going on. But, thanks to insomnia, I can now go through all of the entries.

Wasn't able to download "Shark Hunting," was able to watched it. This is the first video I have seen, and ... wow! What a beautiful little story.

Beautiful pictures and lighting, the story draws you in, then the reveal at the end. I didn't see it coming at all. Makes you think about things after the short is over. Why was he in jail? Is our justice system fair?

Love the abstract title, "Shark Hunting." I love the picture of the sharks in the water, and the little boy carefully working on it.

Favorite camera angle is the back of Papa's head as he puts the picture on the wall, the strong edge lighting, and just when I feel like complaining that the picture is too dark, I realize he is in a cell...

I'd write more, but I've gotta go watch the rest of these!

Despite the "right click" warning I was able to download it after letting it play once in the browser window. I am archiving all versions of everyones videos so maybe we can make CDROMs of them for everyone.

I liked the shooting.

great

I think this was my favorite... I will say that the ending reminded me of a DWI commercial on TV. But this is a very well produced film... great job.
