Thanks Noel, AJ and Chris for the complements. We are very happy that it all came together so well. No Chris, his head was already shaven. We had him shave his face for the flashback though.

Really solid film.
Your actors were both great. Their performances felt honest and the voice over work was really good (although I'm not sure why his "other" voice would sound different - other than to try and hide the twist). Speaking of the twist, I did guess the ending, but I still dug it, especially the way the lines echoed from the beginning to the end and we realized the truth.
I am a huge fan of Geoff's work as a DP and this looked fantastic. I also really loved the score. Well done.

The photography looked good as others have stated and the music added the right tone. I however was not captivated by the story because it was "told" to me. I didn't experience it unveil for myself. I'm not a huge fan of voice overs which is why I felt the entire film was one long exposition. The actor was okay but in this type of story he's really acting by himself. The reveal was a nice twist but I would have liked to be thrown into the story instead of shown the story. Nice head shave."Imagination is more important than knowledge." - Albert Einstein

Thanks Chris M and Charli for mentioning the music!
And yep, the importance of a good shave to a film can not be overemphasized.

Liked the music and the dark tone and lighting. The other voice, being different, through me off a bit.____________

Good job guys, I here was my thought process while watching the movie:
"man this movie is corny, what a crying wuss this guy is... oh wait... oh no he didn't! the suitcase! cool!"
I LOVED the twist. It totally fooled me. Nice job!Matt Harris

Very well done! Looked & sounded perfect for my taste and this was a great story idea.
I still don't quite understand who he was talking to? Himself or someone else? I'll have to go back
and read all the other comments to figure it out.
I personally enjoy dialogue between characters and would have liked you to give the female lead
a little room...even for a giggle or two. At 4 minutes, you still had time. She probably would have fought
a bit more when being strangled (not like I have experience or anything ;-).
Kudos to the team.
