A Lovely "Little" Piece of Work
25 May 2008 | by See all my reviews

I put "little" in quotation marks because, although this film is not very long... I'm certain that to create such animation is extremely labor-intensive and time-consuming. I watched this as a special feature on the DVD of another film, Peck on the Cheek. What a gem we stumbled upon. I wrote the filmmaker, through his website, and he wrote me back promptly. I am impressed with the thoughtfulness in the message of the film, as well as of the filmmaker, who took the time to write back. Having studied film myself, in college, I have a lot more appreciation for art films, rather than typical Hollywood stuff. That's why this film touched me. A great debut by this promising artist, Mr.Josh Staub.
