    Thank you!

    Loved it! But one question, what is the title 8 Days referring to?

    1. Well, she does look extremely… fresh for someone lying dead in room temperature for 8 days.
    2. I don’t think the protagonist loves[/ed] her. Not really. I mean he says, that he saw in her the qualities he himself was lacking in a way that, when together with her it made him feel whole (and maybe that is what he loved). I think the problem was she didn’t feel the same. And that he couldn’t handle this and killed her (which was better than facing the reality of her not needing him in the same way as he needs her). And that’s why after the deed was done he locked himself with her, looking for a ‘solution’, or more so – an explanation. One that would made him feel better about himself and about what – and most importantly WHY he has done this – something big, deep, romantic.. just not the true. He was scared of it. Even more than of the murder itself I think (because it’s not the dead body that he tries to run away from).
    The whole monologue is filled with well composed sentences, has a lot of ‘big’ words. I think that you can smell a dash of self-satisfaction, or maybe rather self-importance through that. There’s this pedantic manner in which the protagonist speaks, which is totally unfitting the situation (he just killed someone). And yet he stays calm, talks in the most composed manner, describing (more or less) simple facts in this over intellectualized way, as if trying to pretend that this situation is somehow *different* and *unique* and about way more than it really is.

    • I couldn’t agree more. I was merely the actor.

      I think visually though it’s very, very good. Sonny did a fantastic job in control of the lighting and camera.

      I don’t care much for the script though. There is no room to breath. You aren’t given any time to feel any of the atmosphere, because you’re trying to hard to remember what words like ‘viscera’ mean. It’s packed and purple.

      It was fun being part of it and I would certainly call it a successful project. Of course it could have been better, but there are no professionals here. Just enthusiasts looking to learn.

      Thanks for the opinion though x

      This is the kind of comment which probably contains a lot of “knowledge” about the facts..but kills all the innocence of it and leaves aside the feeling and the unique touch of the ones who did it, which can be felt through the acting and the whole thing actually… I rather sense a pedantic way in your comment (nothing better than “expert” to ruin it all…) like looking from the shoulder… than in the narration with which I am totally in love.
