    Thanks again.
    No, thank you. I'm humbled by your acknowledgement of my flick.

    Congrats on you being in the winners circle! Your film was very well written and executed.

This was an introspective hero, and he lived in an introspective and solitary world. Thumbs up.
    I think you would benefit a lot from working with a crew. Not only does it give you good experience, it's a lot more fun and it can temper certain ... excesses. I particularly think you should get a consult next time on your editing and FX work. You have a lot of knowledge and ability, but that often leads people to be a little shortsighted about the effect their choices have on a viewer. Your choice of circular wipes, for instance, was excellent and kept the video-gamey feel alive, but the desaturated tones were overdone and (sorry) a little hokey.
    Anyhow, best of luck and see you next fest.

    Ben,

    Thank you for your thoughts. I appreciate your feedback. I'll keep everything in mind. I really like what you said about "created a heroic universe" that is a dead on observation. I felt that was extremely important. The environment is always important to me, but especially in a film like this.

    Thank you. BTW is that Bjork in your avatar? I love Bjork.

    Aaron
