Didn't fully understand
Sorry to say, and I do appreciate your detailed synopsis, but I was unable to figure out just what this entire short (storywise) was supposed to be about. I think there were three different things going on.. but I'm not quite sure.

Camerawork - very nice. I did like the chromakey and it suited the dream sequence well. The edits looked nice.

Audio - creepy music. Audio sounded okay.

All in all, I'm not really sure what to say. The short did not completely grab my attention, which could be part of the reason I had trouble understanding it. Oh well... regardless, best of luck.

I'm sorry to say that doesn't appear to be a complete film, or maybe I'm just missing something? Anyways... on to the review. Camerawork: Nicely done. The colors were... read

    This short was very cleverly done. The twist at the ending was great, and really any of the scenarios could be easily applied. Camerawork: Very well done. Good framing and composition. I liked the way the edits, at the end, were well synchronized with the music. The edits between his listening to his voice mail, to what his girlfriend was doing, was well done. Audio/Music:... read
