The only reason it wasn't better was because it was too short!
5 June 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Great short film!

My complaint is the same as anyone else who has seen it... it's too short! I would love to see a full-length feature film based on the premise presented here.

The marriage of computer graphics and live footage was done well. The acting, direction and story were very good based on what little was presented here. Although the whole "movie" was only about five minutes in length the atmosphere, character development and tension were bang-on (no pun intended).

I don't know who is behind this short production but I hope this is a prelude to future developments.

Good work!
