As I said in a previous thread, I am a sucker for titles and your beginning and ending titles were the best I've seen this challenge thus far. Although I did not get the plot, your acting, as always, is superb.

This is the part that threw me. I could not figure out why he would be startled, so I decided the first knock was generated by someone outside the door. Now it makes sense when I watch it.

I forgot to mention how much I liked the satisfied look on your face near the end. It walked the line between satisfying [for me] and freaky! Nice work, Mugurel.

Glad to see you in another of you films. Will say until I read this thread, did really follow what was going on. Watched YouTube version, so perhaps the higher definition versiosn shows the notes better.

hey Mugurel,

I liked the piece a lot. Simple idea that fits well into under three minutes. I figured there was no "story" so I wasn't looking for it. Just atmosphere. I find anything Supernatural generally pretty scary, unless portrayed in a comic book fashion. You managed to give the impression that we were witnessing something, we maybe shouldn't have.

Excellent acting, nice details.

Did you shoot the match slow-motion shot yourself? If so with which camera and how many fps? Just curious.

Nice job.

Thank you. The match slow-motion it's shot specially for this entry, I used a Panasonic GS35 to shoot standard NTSC, which I resampled to 120fps using avisynth and playback at 24fps, giving you the slow-motion you see :)

The funny part is that I had to shoot this outside as I shot around 10-15 matches so imagine the smell if were done indoors.
