    The shot of the liquid onto the eye got a real reaction – for 90 seconds this develops it’s own style…

  • Robbie Tomkins says:

    Really touching and thoughtfully yet beautifully shot – the image of the eye was amazing and the reflective braille writing was quite inventive.

  • Michele Mead says:

    This film managed to grab my attention from the start and in a short space of just 90 seconds, took me on a journey of emotional fear and confusion, mixed with personal tragedy. Cleverly done, its as though you are seeing first hand through the eyes of this little boy, what it was like to lose his sight and, now in old age how he has come to terms with his blindness and how he sees the world today. Some very good shots like the liquid onto the eye and the sunshine and shading in the trees that the black and white footage cleverly captures. Very well thought out and a first class piece of filming.

  • Jiles Davis says:

    EXCELLENT well done.

    Told the story well and was emotive.

    All aspects of the piece was well thought out and I found it a very spiritual piece..

  • ron wright says:

    Very good, some inventive ideas, although I’m not convinced documentaries should make the finals – there’s not much involved apart from finding someone with a story “angle”, then putting together a couple of poignant lines to ambient music. No imagination required, so 90 second docs don’t cut it for me.

  • John says:

    A 90 second documentary is impossible to be informative or be in any way useful to anyone. No subject can elaborated in 90 seconds. I think it’s about style, and I see a lot in 90 seconds… Cleaver subject, I must say, you focused on his story and done that with style in 90 seconds. Such a shame, and I’m still trying to imagine what it would be like to loose my sight and that is the cleaver part to this. Anyone that as the use of their eyes will have to have a little more appreciation for what they take for granted on a daily bases after watching this… Genius!!

  • JimmyNice says:
