Dick, I almost thought that's what was going to happen when he runs to the vending machine for the water; it seemed like too friendly an atmosphere for that to actually happen, of course, but for a second there I wondered.

Joseph, thank you for the details, "choreography" sounds to be an understatement. I hadn't considered the problem of lighting everything, to hear you did that with only reflectors is inspiring. As has been said, your background must have helped, but it still had to be one hell of a dance coordinating everything. Would you do something this involved again?

You're right about predictability, now that I see you explain it, and I shouldn't have used the word "obvious" back there. I did say it's nice to have a break from the edgy stuff, but somehow it never occurred to me that a happy ending has become the least predictable route to take. Your paragraph swayed me, I suppose, so well done.

And I'm very pleased to hear you're taking my sure to be award-winning idea to heart. French aquatic life is compelling material, let me tell you.

I enjoyed the laid-back pacing of this piece (although it obviously wasn't ALL that way), Joseph, your skill is evident every time we do this challenge and I like to watch your films for things I can learn to do better. Thanks for taking the time to put this piece together.
Get rid of the "Aspiring" in "Aspiring Filmmaker." Shoot it; you're a filmmaker. After that you're just negotiating your budget. (James Cameron paraphrased)
