One HELL of a ride!
26 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's say that this film was the reason that I purchased a Panasonic DVX-100 to shoot my first feature film STASH. I had the pleasure of meeting CJ a few years ago at a film convention in Lexington, KY. He was a really nice dude, and also a very talented one. I remember asking him what kind of film camera he used for the production, and when he said it was DV I about fell over. It was then, and still to this day in my opinion one of the best DV shot movies I have ever scene. Let's not skimp over the storytelling here which is also superb! You could tell CJ put A lot of thought into this project before shooting. The lighting and cinematography were really great and caught the perfect mode at all times. This all leading up to one of the BEST endings I have seen in ANY movie period, mainstream or indie. If you have not seen this one, I think CJ has it over at his website for view. IF not I'm sure it can be found out there somewhere with a search, and I highly recommend it!
