    My first review in quite a while, got the hard word my reviews were too mean, lol, hence the long holiday. Not an issue, here, this is a good effort, but even at six drafts you haven't quite nailed, it - I like your style, engaged from the outset and enjoyed the dialogue from page 1 - your descriptions are short and sweet, plenty of white paper - I'm a fan of economy of words,... read

    This is only a free will, and my first review re a short film, so it will be short and sweet. I enjoyed the experience, it held my interest till the end - I liked in particular the camera work, some good and effective shots, and impressed with the editing - I also liked the fact there was no dialogue, this was definately a show, and not tell, and you told it well - the score... read

    Thanks for the moral support. I do appreciate it. Have you assigned credits to your submissions since you've come back? Hope I'll get one of them assigned or if you ever want me to, I'd be delighted to do a free will review.

    Welcome back! Maybe it's just me (it usually is), but the old street seems much softer these days, with seemingly every script being rated 3's and 4's, even with the most glaring problems.
