Very well done Peter. Heavy and dark. The Cathar in me begs why,...why drag another innocent conscience into this ever warring world, while the Cherokee in me hopes against hope that just maybe that child will grow to be a warrior for peace, unification and love. Thank you for sharing this.

BRAVO! Worth the wait! The opening two minutes was so atmospheric it built enough suspense for the remainder of the story. Excellent.

In the Bay Area, my public television station broadcasts a show that features short films from around the world. I could easily imagine seeing this on that broadcast.

Holy Shit, I'm impressed. When you said your old beginner stuff, I thought I'd see strings holding fake UFO's and bad lighting....not a well thought out short.

LOL- I knew the "classic" stuff would be interesting, but this is minimilist story-telling, no strings attached (k, I was punning on Pyper's post).

Your sound editing was especially well-done, Peter, and your choice of cam angles carried the narrative seamlessly through.

I went and did a little research on the writer. VERY interesting guy!

Thanks for sharing that with us. Looking forward to more!

@Blanch: I like you're Cherokee half. She's cute. Won't survive the night but cute ;-)
@Pyper: We're getting there, p ;-)
@Syd: As a matter of fact this is an important one. I had experimented with angles before but this time I used them in a very specific manner. Also the first time I set up the lighting in a way that helps tell the story. Usually I just go "can I see your face? Good." ;-)

Sound editing trivia: The short story mentioned the squeaky door several times but the actual door was ever so silent. So that's added in post as well.

I read a translation of the story and you have captured this so well, Peter - I expected nothing less, of course, but it's a solid sad story. Perhaps the child is hope. Or the light is hope. Three saints indeed.
Thank you, Peter!
