"Everything You Need" by Ross Burchfield and Bo McKenzi.

Directed by Ross Burchfield, photographed by Bo McKenzie, and starring Michele Seidman, "Everything You Need" measures the weight of coming to terms with a reality not sanctioned by the evening news.

    Very touching, well orchestrated considering less than 3 minutes so 'kudos' to the editor. Michele's character was as if we were peering into someone's living room. Bravo!

    It has a very clean look about it. In addition to that, it is very well paced, beautifully lit, and Michelle is emotionally stimulating. Two thumbs up.

    Thanks Virginia. I4short, not only are Ross & Bo good at what they do, but they know how to surround themselves with a great team. The crew on this worked their backsides off. It seems to have paid off. But I might be biased!

    I feel this entry was filmed by intelligent, profound artists who are seriously responsible with their telling of the story. The director's use of quiet details layered upon layer added poignancy and depth. I found myself caring for the character.

    truly remarkable adaptation...the style to the filming was superb, the acting, the way the camera would move, very controlled....a remarkable film, with a truly unigue camera skills and photography

    I'm simply not sure how this didn't make the finalist!? Very well done, nicely paced, and the camera and lighting work was just amazing. My hat is off to the filmmakers for this entry, purely robbed if you ask me!

    joani and Harv thank you so much for those kind words. Carol, that was sweet of you to take the time and I really enjoyed your work. Thank you David! Herby, I was a tiny bit surprised but maybe my acting hurt the project, because technically...nearly flawless work this team did! Thank you Devin!
