Effective and Simple

A series of faces from a crowd, each staring at something off screen, each with an obvious emotional relationship to what they are watching. The images go on and on without audible dialog, and it's not hard to guess the object of their gaze. The film delivers on acknowledging its subject appropriately at its finale.

This short is most properly a documentary, but is truly something different entirely. All it takes is one person to capture a moment so simply, but so powerfully. The approach is bold, but transcends any simple conception of technique because the camera at this moment is so inconsequential it becomes invisible, leaving us with the naked truth.
