I agree this is my favorite, i guess this calls into asian cinema. good lighting and the acting was good and you could tell the sadness they felt was true. Great work.

Chiming in. Probably the most original image in the fest. I really like it. I also liked the acting and line-delivery. I felt bad for "Eric" when she asked for money, and when he couldn't say no.
That said, I didn't see a story at all. Didn't know who they were. But it looked great, dude.

no one mentioned my accidental 180 rule break at the scene when she comes in. At first it was never supposed to cut to the guy until coffee time. but for technical, unsatisfactory dialogue reasons I had to place it in to "cover up"- thank GOD I shot the second angle so at least I'd have something- but wasn't thinking about blocking and sorta broke the 180- but i think having already established their place, it's not so bothersome.
with that said, can't believe some of the comments here so far. thank you!

wow, this so far is my favorite. why, it works, it is believable. i love the line , " this is random." cool. i also agree with the above comment on how eric reacts when he is asked for money. great acting, not over the top, and the dialogue was well written too. i also like the way you had your actors move around, the pacing was just right. the toast popping, the coffee cup sounds. it all works real well for me.

yeah, i learned a lot from your film on how you can make so much out of one simple room. it is amazing how much you can take out from almost nothing. i like that. making the room a character almost, it seems the more anyone does that with the surroundings, the more the movie works. the more the film feels. i havent seen all the films yet but yours seemed to nail this the best so far. letting the room just "be". letting the characters do what they do, you showed a lot, i think you got a real good eye. thanks for sharing!

well, i've watched every single dramafest film beginning to end. i revisited a few and found myself in a struggle to choose between this one and Middle Man. 18 Seconds and Ajar were also close considerations, but in the end this film is the one that resonated with me the most. it's the one i couldn't stop thinking about and kept returning to. so i know i pm'd you to tell you this but i wanted to post it here too... you got my vote.
