>Ohene nailed the ending; I felt that lol

that was the part i had to 'direct' him...we did it a few different times where he made a shocked face

then i was like nah man...SOMEBODY HAD YOUR KEY! you lose your knees, man...like imagine

then he nailed it.

although, if i'd thought ahead to have knee pads, i would have had him drop quicker

i learned that directing the camera shots and directing the actor are two completely different skill sets..this was so fucking fun

Those elements make for a great independent, creative film.

It’s a very intriguing short film, that allows for many different interpretations.


Good job.

Such a simple yet unique story.
I applaud the decision to remove any sort of nat sounds.
The music provided all of the audio we needed.
Well done.
