I thought, though the transitions, volume problems, and all that stopped me me fully understanding what was going on, it was a great film! I can relate to the aspect of searching for something, staying up until late at night, and of course talking to a lot of people online on chatrooms. I waited for ages for this film, and in the end I'm kind of sad that it's over. I hope to see more of your films in the future (but please try and fix the whole volume problem and voice over timing thing. I like the idea of subtitles though, that'd help a little.) I have a question, what is the total difference between the VHS and the DVD quality videos? Is it that big of a difference that I'll be able to see and hear things a lot clearer? If so, I'll get the DVD quality videos asap (and then probably fix them up so that I can put them on CD-R cds but with better transitions). I hope you plan to some day re-edit this film (nothing major: just better transitions between scenes, making the voices all be about the same loudness instead of having so many varying loudnessess...ess, and maybe subtitles). I need to get my friends together and make the film that we (my friends) planned on making a year ago. I only have a digital camera for video but it'll do just fine (the sound and video is good!) and I trust that it can do the job. I've already edited a few videos, so that wont be a problem. The real problem is making a better script (I want to make a movie that is spontanious aka no real scripts so that it's for the most part made up as we go along so that the emotions are more realistic and less rehearst).

"I saw the movie. It was good except for the sound. What professionals do when the sound gets muffed is redub. If you can get the actors back into the studio, it would take an afternoon to repair the soundtract.. Also, when dialogue begins, reduce the volume of the music. This is a very good first movie. After a few more practice movies, you could become the next George Lucas." Craig Lee Chrisco (http://PeacefulBeginnings.Org/) July 7, 2006 - 3:11pm

Aaron Collins (from website e-mail form) says: Sure the editing was off sometimes, and the sound wasn't smooth. Sure you talking was sometimes not heard, if you ask me though if i liked that movie or if i hated it i will say one thing. That has to be one of the BEST DAMN FREE TWO HOURS seeing a movie...I will put that up next to science of sleep. The ending was amazing, and the story line relatable. There dialog true, sure that acting was a little cheezy at parts, but you really did do the best with what you had. If that was Professionaly made, i would most likely shed a tear or two. Always, A New Fan, and fellow writer, actors, ect. Aaron October 13, 2006 - 3:16pm

Hey, Really liked this movie. Flamed the guy who insulted it in that magazine, his view is so out of touch with reality. If this is what can be achieved with $200 there's a lot of potential. Good luck with your next project. Moc - http://www.infowars.com/ August 6, 2006 - 3:25pm

Great Job! I relate to the storyline. The sound was the biggest detriment, but props to the tune selection. I appreciate the hallway scene when she came with the script, and the first meeting at the park; captured the essence of conflicts between first meeting and age difference. I doubt that even the best pros could capture that. It felt so awkward it was real. Keep up the good work! Jed July 30, 2006 - 3:26pm

I read the script of the movie first and fell in love with the concept since I could relate to it. It was wonderfully made. I watched the movie with the headphones on, and the volume did not trouble me at all. The internet scenes seemed like they were almost forwarded but I was reading what they were typing and the Voice Overs were going way too fast. Besides that, the movie was great. Thanks for keeping it free. =) - Javaria July 24, 2006 - 3:27pm

Whilst the movie is a very good effort with a good story, an interesting theme and a decent script, the production values lower the movie's quality. The actors are inaudible at times because of the music played, which also is played a little too often - silence can create so much more atmosphere than music! Also the picture was a little too dark at times so it was difficult to see what was going on. Your cinematography was good, but one or two more camera angles during conversations would have gone done well, like the scene at the end where he's talking to her parents - it would have been great to see THEIR reactions; having it the way you did make it seem like they were the ones filming him! However, that's not to say I didn't enjoy watching it. Well done. Rachel KTL

I loved the movie, you did an excellent job. The movie was very realistic, I could see this happening to me or one of my friends. Despite what others may think I liked the whole underage sex bit, this happens a lot in the real world and very few, if any movies show this situation. Very well done movie, good job! I will be sure to keep the torrent seeded. Devon - http://devon-blog.blogspot.com/ July 22, 2006 - 3:30pm

I just watched your movie, fantastic piece of work, very will written and very well filmed. It made me long to date my wife all over again. Much deaper and richer than the standard romance. I look forward to more of your work in the future. Claude Rafter July 21, 2006 - 3:32pm

I just watched the film, and I was really impressed, for a $200 show. You really didn't need that warning bit at the beginning! Personally, I thought the content was very entertaining, despite the usually low number of romance movies I watch. Normally I'm interested in the kind of hyper-realist darkly comedic films like The Big Lebowski or Pulp Fiction, and philosophical-type film such as Ghost in the Shell (an anime, but very good all the same), but I was pleasantly surprised watching your film. Like some other people have said, the sound was a bit muffled. In the telephone conversation scene Daniel (you) and Melissa have, I couldn't hear Melissa's lines. Your efforts have really impressed me, as I myself am an aspiring filmmaker and screenwriter. A few friends and I are currently developing two screenplays, one of which I hope to produce later this year. It helps to make connections. I've made contact with a Community theater group who have volunteered to act for free, as well as a university's film department who's willing to lend me equipment for free. So far, I'm shooting the film for free. In my experience producing short films, I find the best quality sound is made using "shotgun" mics on a boom. When using these, it's important to point the end towards the head of whoever is talking. By the way, what programs did you use to edit the movie? And what editing programs are open-sourced? All in all, I'm elated that more home-made open sourced films are getting out there. Keep on doing what you're doing. Mikhail July 8, 2006 - 3:34pm
