Kudos from me too. Nice job. The dialog might need a bit of refining but for a first effort, very nice.

I am amazed by the quality level of these later DVChallenges. It's getting really good. Here in Columbus we are lucky to have a shorts festival that is open to everyone that makes any short video/film projects as long as they are from Central Ohio. All you have to do is submit something, nobody is turned away for quality or content issues. That's a great thing. I would put any of the videos that have been in these challenges in there with them and they would be able to hold their own. This is another fine example of folks doing something they are compelled to do - that's art.

Good job.

Your shot compositions were nicely done. Very evocative use of location -- I really got a strong sense of place, like in Introspectacle.

I'll echo what many others said. Absolutely BEAUTIFUL pictures. You have an eye for composition and could be my D.P. anytime. However, I knew where the story was going way before it was over. Throw a change-up into your next short. Convince the audience where it is going, and then don't go there. And keep making pictures. You got the eye!

Great work and a pleasure to view.

The cinematography, music, the monologue, and editing were excellent.

Okay, like everyone else said, the images were fantastically cinematic. But I felt that the naration colored the images to much, and did not leave the viewer to draw his or her own conclusions about what was being said. I know with limited time we all could do only what we could do, but I think, with a little addition here and there, you had enough emotion and suggestion in the visuals to say what you wanted to without using all the narration.
