This is somewhat embarrassing to admit, but I found myself weeping, and I cannot quite for sure say why.

This wasn't a sad film, but it had a sadness to it that drudged up some kind of abstract emotion inside me.

It was almost too beautiful for words.

Yes - it's a wonderful combination of familiarity and yearning, isn't it?

You're not alone; I bawled like a baby throughout the whole piece.

It made me feel homesick, but I don't know for what.

Thanks, Fausta for the link

My name is Joe Gleason, and I made this short film. Thanks so much for your encouraging comments; I'm honored that the film moved you as much as it did.

I'm a 21-year-old college student, and I created this film for a video production class this past semester.

I've always been interested in what happens during the moments before the main event, i.e. before the dinner party, before a letter is opened, before a gift is unwrapped, etc. I think those moments often provide fascinating insights into people and the way they relate to each other.

I hope to continue making films that provoke reflection and discussion, and ultimately, I'd like to impact the world and draw people closer to God through them.

If any of you are interested, you might enjoy these other two shorter films I made this past spring:



Thanks again for all of the encouragement. Enjoy!

Well, I just watched both of those movies...awesome. Just breathtaking. The first one (the shorter one - The Letter?) was wonderful, and the second one, with the siblings, reminded me of a 21st century shorter version of Woody Allen's "Interiors."

Thanks for sharing! You have real talent, and an awesome carer ahead of you.
