Dear Daniel, thank you so much for this... it's perfect.
I've watched this 3 times in the past 3 days. It's SO good to see something so simple lacking the whole drama and tragedy... it's so pure. All the good feels. I'd love to see more like this... sosweet but powerful.
I am transgender woman that is exclusively attracted to men (heterosexual). But for some reason I am madly in love with gay men love. Men, when they allow themselves to lower their guards, to become vulnerable and tender towards each other, magic happens.
Hello! do you also make fiction short-films ??? I have a a short film I would love to share with you 🎬; you could just look for "PLANETA ZEME STONJAUS" on YouTube or send me a message to give you the link, thanks a lot 👍
If only we all had the maturity to respond difference like this. The kiss was offered as a sign of deep emotional bond and, with a little reflection, that was how it was received. Gay men and straight men can do this without compromising their sexuality. Sadly, it doesn't often work that way.
You've a natural talent, Dan. You should seek crowd funding to turn your short into a full length film - I don't have much but I'd certainly contribute what I could. Beautiful. If you do make it into a feature, use the same actors, they were great.
Very good Daniel. I loved the format. No one films in widescreen anymore. It looked nice. Guys get so bent out of shape when it comes to feelings that everyone loses. Love is complicated, especially when it’s between two guys mostly because of stereotypes. Too bad. It would be nice if we could express ourselves with the ones we love physically but society puts the brakes on that. And we all lose.
I died. My stupid ass didn't know this was Ari and Dante until he said Dante's name lmfao pls forgive me. Btw I loved this!! Felt like forever for them to kiss--just like in the book!! But in the end with the long wait it's all worth it.
The guy who played Ari did a good job. He could have done better but in a town full of wannabes (I live in L.A.) he clearly has a lot of potential (most wannabe actors here suck). Screenplay sucked and directing/cinematography lacked creativity. One of the most important components of a film is its story. If the screenplay sucks, then so probably does the film. In this case, both are true. Sorry, I'm not at all against "gay-themed" films, but whoever wrote this probably should give up writing and whoever played Ari should probably seriously strongly pursue an acting career.
This was very well done. Just two real people, going through real life emotions. Shooting the shit like 2 friend would. At the end you still aren't sure if one is gay, or just in the moment or questioning. It's not just in your face this person is declared by his sexuality.
well I just watched this again Daniel. Not sure if my eyes were leaking the first time, but they are now. It's 5:13 on Sunday morning and I'm up way past my bedtime...lol. So this inspiration mentioned above must be a book or poem or...? Guess I'll have to stay up and search for Alire Saenez . Hope u have a best. Gnight.
sophisticated, respectful, reflective, sincere, heartfelt! for a job well done for all those involved from the concept of the book, to the representation in this media. whether it's a boy and a girl, girl and a girl, or boy and a boy - we have all experienced loving our best friend.
I'm gay and I had a straight best friend. Our relationship was almost like this. He moved to another city for work. This film reminded me the time I spent with him. I already sent him the link. Thank you so much for uploading this sweet movie.
Beautiful and rightly underlined. True that sometimes all the answers lies right in front of us... Just took some guts to realize it and dare go for it. Emotions within bruise easily but are we always ready for them...thank you for sharing it
If you like things like that, you should watch "safe and sound". I really appreciate this movie, it's awesome and it's cute.
Here's the link to safe and sound. It's godamn adorable
Have a nice gay
I meant day
Nice short but soundman needs to get his act together..... too much mumbling that is not understandable..... I wish all movies were required to put sub-titles on ALL films .... actors seem to think it's cool to mumble ... movies in the 40's and 50's had much better sound AND actors with diction
