A beautiful film with quality human interaction

I was given the honor of viewing Jeffrey Palmer's and Flicker Pictures "Split Costs". I am normally of two minds when taking time out to watch short films.

In this case I am so happy I did. I could tell from the start it was going to be a heavy dialogue drama. It was so well written it just sucked me into to the journey of Emma and Judy as they set out on their trip together.

I will not say anymore about the story, so not to spoil it for those yet to watch. What I will say is, that Jeffrey Palmer did an excellent job on writing, directing and producing.

He also did the cinematography, which was intimate in your face and very artistic, which just added to the overall atmosphere of this excellent drama.

Split Costs so far has won 5 awards, been a finalist and had official selection between multiple film festival's. After viewing the film, this is fully deserved and understandable why it is doing so well.

The characters of Emma and Judy were brought to life so well by Mela Hudson and Tori Hall. They did the art of acting human connection through drama - PROUD!

The rest of the supporting cast did an excellent job too. If Palmer can knock out a short film like this, I will be very excited to see what he does with a feature length film.
