Short and Sweet

Not surprisingly a short about a girl in a lay-by.

Not a lot to it really. A few interesting camera angles or setups to jazz it up a bit. I get the inkling there is some deeper experiences behind the story. On the surface it is about realizing that if you want something you have to actually do something about it yourself.

The length of it was just right in my opinion. The lack of any braincandy would soon of had me getting bored. I didn't find it inspirational or poor... a bit middle of the road.. (ho ho)
