Nicely shot. Your two actors felt really natural for the most part and the dialogue worked very well. It didn't end like I thought it would - I figured the old guy still had a trick up his sleeve - but that only served to give me a little shock and twinge of disappointment in the end which was very fitting.

Good stuff.

That makes sense to me. I'd imagine anyone getting in to that line of work would brace themselves for this kind of thing, and reason or none they'd be ready for it.

Chris,

Very well done. I was impressed with the shots in the moving vehicle!!!

The end had me going. I thought the twist would be shooting his dog. I was surprised when he got blasted too!!! Of course it was all explained in the end!!!

In my world the guy just submitted to easily. I kind of expected to see him resolve his complication some way.

Very enjoyable

What a great entry

Great story line. Especially liked the "road ends" sign in the background, very clever.

Tom- you were first to comment on that. While we didn't intentionally go to that site because the sign was there, it was a happy coincidence fitting into our story.

Dale: When I get home tonight, I will post a pick of my contration used to film from back seat.

Thank you, Steve, Trond, Joseph and Jay for your time in commenting, as well as Robert and Andris for your followups.

Rig used to shoot in car

Here are some pic of rig I used to shoot in car. I simply shot from back and rested on acters shoulders for a pivot point, relaxing my grip to ride with the bumps.
