A Diamond In The Rough!
23 September 2004 | by (Auburn, ME) – See all my reviews

What more can one ask for from an indie short. A great story line, tight camera work and clean, crisp editing make this film the ultimate diamond in the rough. Steve Piper's experience in film-making shines through in every detail.

HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY is an eye opening story of a quiet photographer (David House) and his daily thought process as he captures images on film. He is an intellectual who has mastered the art of how to disappear from the public eye as he molds his craft. One day while shooting nature he is paralyzed by the image of a woman (Michelle Munden) who's beauty is stunning. He scrambles to set up the perfect shot in an attempt to capture this woman's beauty forever. What happened next is forever etched in my brain. The ending completely threw me.

HOW TO DISAPPEAR COMPLETELY is currently touring the festival circuit. You can view the movie Wednesday September 8th at the LA Short Film Festival at the ArcLight Cinemas in the heart of Hollywood, CA. Also, if you're in London check it out at Shoot & Slice on September 12th. And that's not all.
