wow. I'm no film industry professional, but to me you did a great job as a student. I loved your short doc and I hope your friend is now in a better position in life. Are you still in touch? What happened to him?

This is amazing! It partly inspired my short documentary for my film class, though it's no where near as good. This is a truly beautiful piece and I'm looking forward to seeing your other stuff!

Just stumbled across your film, and I passionately felt the need to comment on the impressiveness of your work. Very beautiful narrative, incredibly well-executed cinematography to bring the words to life. Keep up the great work! Perhaps we could find a way to collaborate when I'm ever in the city!

it is awsome! This video induces emotions and makes to think about, namely we should esteem that what we have. He moved in The New York obtained job, home then lost all it why did he stay there? what does he want to prove? for me that is senseless

I understand if he was working in retail it's not enough money to rent in NYC but he's creating his own situation by simply not going back home to wherever this family of his is. He's choosing this life when he has options he's just unwilling to take. Creating your own hardship isn't inspirational. Fixing it is.

In NYC they will fly you free of charge to another state as long you have family to stay with in that other state. Its the city's way to get rid of the homeless and this is a fact

@Maiko Newell Yeah avoid the people that say you can stay with them, or they will rent you a room. I'm very happy for you, people really have no idea what its like.

Turn your way to God for help homeless guys. Stop addiction if you maybe have. Read the Holy Bible for answers, for consolatian, the New Testament in it for the Gospel. Go to church, ask there for shelter included some work for money. Pray God for forgiveniss of your sins through the powerful work of His Son Jesus Christ. Amen. (that should be the main wish) When you have God, you have everything, He will help you if you are honest and do your best. Pray and work if you can, I am sympatize with you, best to you!
