Brian, thanks for taken the time to critique. The scene used to be 4:30 min, and I cut it to 3:25, but yes I can see how you would feel that way. There is always room for cutting, but I think when you see the overall picture you may not feel that way. Plus its already pretty short the whole film and cutting more out will substantially reduce the length even more, like almost short film category. Im all fir cutting myself because I think most movies even the good ones, contain at least 1-3 minutes of fluff, but this scene was difficult to cut because of the lack of takes, and also continuity to cut to.
