I listened to the entire movie while sewing, as I do with all of my audio-books (combining the two activities helps me stay focused on both). This test movie turned out to be the best audio-book I've listened to so far. It kept my attention until the very end and it engaged me emotionally, too. The author is an excellent narrator and the music background fits the story perfectly.
For a real movie, I think that there is one more story needed to retain the attention of the viewer who won't be sewing while watching. Perhaps the story of Annette Farino can start developing from the moment Roger saw the picture of Annette, Macie, and himself in the Italian bistro.

Thank you, Robert, and good luck!

Great story, reminescent of Memento in style and with a Chinatown tone. Amazing production for a one-man-show. Very inspiring demonstration of what a single storyteller can do with the right tools. I particularly enjoyed the visual effects of the skydiving fall. Wondering if I could pull of something like this myself. Great work! Look forward to seeing this on the big screen.

I only watched the first 10 minutes, then skipped around (2 hours, sorry, can't do), but I have to say, Wow!

Seriously, that was first rate - excellent narration, great choices for the visual clips and fine scoring. I really think this is what Amazon had in mind for a test movie.

I would be quite disappointed if you didn't take down the Movie win.

Best of luck (and enjoy your winnings.)

As far as the Test Movie goes, I've looked over a few others and this one by far is the best that I've seen! Good Job Robert! I didn't write a Full Critique Review because my focus was the Test Movie itself instead of the actual screenplay and then the fact that I have very little knowledge about the composing of Test Movies I didn't feel equipped to give a full fledge Reveiw...All I know is that I liked what I saw and would definetly want to see a Real Movie Film of the Test Movie!
