Awesome Cinematography!
4 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was just amazed by the cinematography and was fascinated how this was filmed with ONE camera! WOW! The night scape scenes were astounding and the little nuances Mike Carroll picked up on were stunning! An amazing gift in film! Lori Foxworth is amazing as Mercy. Its the little things in this film that you really have to watch for. Pay attention to the camera angles on each scene and remember that only one camera was used. You could tell that each scene was painstakingly filmed which had to be a task for the actors, especially during the emotional scenes. Mike Carroll has a gift of film and editing. I thought it was a great script and a real insight of night dwellers in the big city.
