To Simonne Polster: I got this from the rules: "The length of a video Entry must be greater than 30 seconds and no more than 15 minutes in length..."

To Gary Theroux: I agree with you. I know a lot has been left open, but you have to understand that the film was made in an art school context for a video art project, where unfortunately, people tend to be quite anti narrative and anti hollywood. If I had tied/explained every loose end, they would have had my head! It's tuff because I wanted it to be much clearer and to have a faster pace, but I let myself be swayed too much by the demands of the teacher/class. I guess I shouldn't have done that! Actually, in spite of art school and all, if it was that unclear to you, then perhaps I really need to refine my storytelling skills.

Thanks for the honest feedback. I really appreciate it.


also, the requirements specifically stated 10 minutes max

Nicely shot and edited but ultimately meaningless because whatever point the writer had in mind was never conveyed to the audience which had tuned out long before the end. This short went on and on without making at all clear what is it about and I found myself struggling to keep watching until the credits, It left me frustrated -- feeling I had wasted my time. Whatever significance there was to the dress on the tree, the Bobbettes song, the box of meaningless artifacts, the bedroom sequences, etc. was never explained. All I got out of it was the lead was someone quite unprofessional about whatever job she has and that the deceased person was a white friend of some sort. And the point of this is -- what?
