What I liked about this short film was the creator’s editing techniqes. The cut ins and cut outs mirrored the stories serious tone with a dramatic style. It grabbed my attention with the initial shot and then pulled me in when it cut to black…it made me wonder, ‘what was coming next?’

I also really liked her interview with Ken Holmes. The set up was perfect, in my opinion. Fantastic lighting, great tight frame. It made the somber mood even that much more intimate.

The story that I want to tell is about a man who is in a coma for a few months and take two years to recover to operating normally again. I’m going to have to show pictures in the film, and I like the way in which this creator displayed the pictures of Mark.
