Everything Unspoken follows a couple as they struggle to face up to their own—and each other’s—limitations and aspirations. In their early thirties, they’ve seen the initial promises of youth begin to fade. When it seems their passion for each other has begun to fade, too, they struggle with how to move on. It is a visceral, emotional experience that reveals the one life secret we all know, but struggle so hard to accept: life may not work out the way you planned, but what is important is the willingness to go on

Very arty film with a great mood and ability to transform an atmosphere. I loved it! Strange characters, an unbelievable storyline, black and white, shaky camera, I think mostly when out in public or when others were in the shot...? All put together to make an excellent and engaging viewing experience.
Recommended watching for sure!
Thank you :)

I like this director's work-- I think he's deep in the tradition of the artist-filmmaker, and I appreciate people who work in this space.

thank you for your work and for distributing it in this fashion. i don't know if you want to read an art critique, i don't know if you'd like to discuss you film. as least, i would like to ask what about the shaking camera and the film-stuttering (is that what you call it? it seemed like a frame-dropping technique. i haven't been trained in film), what about those techniques appeals to you? would you tell me, did it support your story telling needs? i'd like to see it as you do. thanks in advance. have a sweet day.

Thanks for taking the time to watch and respond. At the time this movie was made
The mini DV technology was very new. There were not 3 chip 24 p cameras at this time. Then of course later HD and SLR, ect. This movie was shot on a tiny one chip camera. At the time something you would use to record a Birthday party or a vacation. I simply wanted to make something feature length and had no money. At the time I think I made this film for a couple of hundred dollars, maybe less.
I digress, sorry. The video in color and steady just looked horrible, like a birthday party or Americas Funniest Videos. Just bad. I was shooting a DJ one night and the light was low so I put the camera on low light setting and that is how I came across the swirly stuttering look. Then when I went to edit I made it black and white. I liked it. At the time it was a great solution. It was moody and grainy and did not look like TV Video and cost me nothing. So it was actually a solution. Further at the time I'd been watching lots of Dogma 95 (or is it 93) films and they were grainy/shaky no light so they inspired me to move forward in that style. It really was about making something feature length for no money. I was happy with it and watching it now I'm still fine with it.

Best
