hey I just watched this one and it is one of my favorites so far. I really enjoyed the lighting, the cinematography, the way everything seemed to be slipping in and out of focus. My only bummer was actually seeing "it." otherwise you have a nice little entry here, I really loved it.

Nice work. I agree, I wouldn't have shown it but that's just me.
This movie was very good. I loved the voice as well, how did you pull that off?
Very grainy but it seemed to fit. Some nice framing of shots here as well. Very well done.

AURORA - THOUGHTS
Hey Connor. Just got a chance to check out your short. Some of the audio, even in headphones, was hard to hear and the sound overpowered important dialog. Since the piece is mostly dialog, that's something of a technical issue for the audience. I do like the imagery going on here, I think it didn't work for me personally because of the dialog itself.
There's some really nice lowlit footage and I don't mind the noise one bit. I think because it fits, perhaps. Lots of cool frames, focal points and defocus. The image didn't seem to be enough for me to really get into what they were talking about.
Almost felt like I was being preached at about love up until he reveals thoughts about himself. It's really hard to pull off an all dialog piece as a whole. You've done well visually, I'm not sure if the conversation is strong enough. Especially for a full five to six minutes.
I definitely didn't need to see the being, by the way. He could've stayed obscure, as a thought or imaginative thing personally.
Great imagery, I guess I just couldn't really find the actual story.

The alien voice and performance was great.
I thought the story idea was very interesting, but I never quite believed your lead actor. To be fair though, some of his lines were a little on the nose and hard to deliver.
Technically, I dug the lighting both in the shadow and when he was hit with the light.
