A review of CALLBACKby Mark Hemingway on 03/02/2008This was well done. For all the problems that you faced while shootings this short, it turned out great. I enjoyed your actors, the lighting, the shots the editing. All around a great job. Don't change a thing. Congrats. I recommend this short, I also look forward to seeing any more of your work.
A review of THE MAFIA TYPEby Mark Hemingway on 02/20/2008I liked this. There were some long scenes with Fernando, but overall it had nice production value to it.
