I Have Decided To Be No One Project Greenlight Submission

    Hi Ken and Team,

    Really nice film, genuinely cinematic, lovely use of slow mo, angles, jump cuts etc and music to convey this detached point of view. Some lovely ovbservation in the people’s faces – a lot of compassion and yearning for connection in this bleak portrait.

    I think some more long lens shots, really tight close ups like the portait of the cheating wife and senile father would have been nice, bit that’s just a personal preference. The scene where the lead character is watching the corporate douchebags works really well, as does the treacherous friend’s embarrassed wave.

    Great stuff! Would you like me to post this in the Fifty Dollar Film School site? If you have a short paragraph about you, the team and the movie I can use this to promote your talents too.

    Hey, after this existential portrait study what about a comedy next? 🙂 Cheers!

    Best wishes,


    Allan Gildea

    Wow, a wonderful piece. The message is so strong — the more we shed, the more we become truer to who we are.

    Great work, Dom and Ken …. truly,

    An excellent film, remarkably complete and satisfying in just three short minutes. My only wish is to see and hear more. It feels like a study for a much larger and deeper work, and I sincerely hope that happens.

    Guy – thank you for your very thoughtful comments and for taking the time to view the film. I would encourage you to take a look at some of our other work, including Nicky which delves into some similar themes, but at greater length. We also have our feature films available to stream for free, including The Darkness Within, which has a 90-minute runtime and is a piece we are particularly proud of. Again, we thank you for your time and support!
