CGiii Comment

The potential for this to be an incredible work of art was there...

The thought that went behind this...is demolished by incompetent camera work.

There is a moment in this film that is a natural conclusion - if the directors had the maturity they would have spotted this...allowing for the scene to linger and fade...thereby having a short that would have soared above its contemporaries.

There is a huge amount of talent on display - just don't employ the same cameraman ever again.

With experience and maturity...you may go on to make a great film...one day.
