Well shot and well acted, needs a bit more development.
A man, showing tension, drives to a phone booth and calls to report an accident and wanting to remain anonymous. This is an effective opening element of mystery. Having the man jump dressed into the shower made me more curious. Then the reveal comes in, he caused the accident. After this I think it needs more development on showing his state of mind for the end to work, which I also think is very good.

    This short did not do anything for me, remainds me of the "this is your brain on drugs" TV adds but without a punch. It may have a small hook at the begining, but it falls flat right away. Tag line sais: Drugs Aren't All Bad, so this story needs a little effort to prove that.

    The opening scene is powerful, this short grabbed me right away with its pure imagery, superb cinematography, great acting. Second act drags a little bit, I think it needs to define the conflict more and the character's objectives to build more tension. Great job, congratulations! Can't wait to see more work from you.

    What a great job, the look is very professional and provides the right atmosphere for the story development, the kid does a superb job being annoying and presenting a threat at the same time, the film pacing is right on target to end with a great payoff, well the kid got his treat! Just well done, congratulations!
