    I got the relationships but I know these guys, or guys like these guys.
    Story had a powerful conclusion and nice score and some nice editing there.
    I think it's too long by a 3rd and in the wrong festival (it's not horror it's just tragic).
    I appreciated the natural performances and dialogue and payoff of the story. And the low fi video look didn't bother me for one second. In fact I didn't even notice it.

    Hey Edgen.
    This was an interesting piece. My friends and I had a lot of fun watching this. Very offbeat characters. Funny voices, motivaions and relationships.
    The acting and dialogue delivery was ok. Cinematography, score, and editing was ok.
    Liked the moral conundrum at the end.

    The guy on the zipline came out of nowhere. We were in stiches.

    We were a bit confused since we couldn't "figure out" the movie until that final scene.

    The humor at the begining sharply contrasts with the sad, weightiness at the end. Masterfully done.
    I think it'll stay with us for a while. Pretty memorable and unique tale.

    Just finally getting the time to copy the notes I compiled in a Word doc while watching the shorts:

    The CC really helped to take a lower consumer end camera & make the image a lot nicer. Fairly good camera & editing, though the acting was rough by the drunken lead, I felt. I didn’t get how this was a horror until the very end, and indeed … having to choose between who to save would be horrific, no doubt. Still room to improve the overall sound design/levels, though the score was solid & effective, & didn’t try to rule the film … a compliment considering the film was made by a composer. J

    Some of the best performances in the fest. As Jack pointed out, they're very natural. Captured the type of guys perfectly. Was it largely improvisation?

    I know some of you guys thought it took too long to 'get to the point' of my film, "Brown Waters"... but I've uploaded the original cut of the film.

    In the next few days if you have nothing better to do.. give it a watch. This cut is with another piece of music and is actually what I based the first movie on. Some scenes are completely cut out because I didn't get a chance to capture the footage at that time. It's 9:45 minutes running time. So... for those of you liked the dry funny accents and monotone deliveries.. here ya go.

    I also said I would release the final final ending. so I'll do that here in a few days.

    yup. word is bond. James Bond.
