Details the trials and tribulations of four student photographers who collaborate on one final project before graduation. Caught sharing photos in their portfolios, David, Karma, Danny, and Kevin are given a chance to save their final grade before graduation. Danny returns home that night to find his fiancé Stephanie in bed with another man. Unnoticed and enraged, he photographs them in the act, and shares the picture with the others. Inspired by the raw nature of the photograph, the four friends agree to use it as the thesis for their new portfolio... capturing subjects at their most vulnerable. Soon, their exploitative behavior begins to tear apart their lives and relationships, and they must come to terms with the harsh truths of their lives through the lens of a camera. Written by

I saw this movie at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival, and I was very impressed. The script was tight and the dialogue was realistic...the movie managed to be touching, hilarious, and suspenseful, sometimes simultaneously! From the promotional materials and story synopsis I had expected suspense, and the movie delivered, but the humor and wit inherent to almost every scene came as a nice surprise. The story was engaging, and the film was beautifully shot. I wonder if the writer/director did actually come from a photography background, because it's not often that I notice when a movie has good lighting. :-) I was amazed to find out later that it was shot on digital video...it had none of the quality issues I would have expected from digital video, and I saw it on an enormous screen. I hope this movie gets more exposure...it certainly deserves it.
