    Technically sound! I can't really flaw it - hand-held cam works well for the dramatic pace, and yet maintains enough clarity not to make us feel like we're watching Cloverfield.

    The colours (or the lack of) were fantastic. The stark contrast against the snow is great mise-en-scene. Feels like the opening to True Lies.

    Content wise, nice premise - although I would have liked to seen a deeper exploration of the child's imagination, juxtaposed with reality. A similar example to this is South Park - where the children play as ninjas - ending in a brutal loss of an eye! Indeed, I think if you were to re-write this short film - you could definately play with the child's imagination (and immortality to destruction) a lot more . For example the kid gets hit - claims he's wearing armour, or the bullet missed (a bullet wound disappearing immediately.) Also play around with mundanity becoming the fantastical

    Thanks for the awesome feedback! Im glad you liked the color grading and handheld look.

    I think you're points about the storyline were spot on too. I dont think this one will be re-written anytime soon, but those ideas will definitely be remembered.
