    Great way to start my weekend!

    I even read the credits- loved the b&w, acting was so "on", made me SMILE.

    Sort of like my new epl2 - I don't think I've felt this giddy about anything I've ever bought for myself :smile:

    Sun is shining today in my part of Michigan! Thanks for sharing the video.

    I've just watched it again and it really is inspiring. Down to earth and real is why i enjoy it.

    For those that haven't watched it yet. Give it a go and for sure you'll smile. But beware: it also contains photography. :smile:

    a nicely done little movie - a good idea, a good script, actors, good simple lighting and camerawork, plus good editing and a good soundtrack..

    Making movies can be simple.... but that doesn't mean they are easy... look at the number of people in the credits!!!

    Absolutely wonderful.. just what is needed in our crazy world of earthquakes, riots, protests, sovereign debt (don't worry moderators - this is not going to be political - I'm stopping now). Grabbed my attention and held it.

    Also shows that the best piece of "equipment" needed to take pictures of people is not a "better" camera - it's better people skills.

    I see it was made in 2006. It has won a few awards (from Youtube):

    "Validation" is a fable about the magic of free parking. Starring TJ Thyne & Vicki Davis. Writer/Director/Composer - Kurt Kuenne. Winner - Best Narrative Short, Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, Winner - Jury Award, Gen Art Chicago Film Festival, Winner - Audience Award, Hawaii Int'l Film Festival, Winner - Best Short Comedy, Breckenridge Festival of Film, Winner - Crystal Heart Award, Best Short Film & Audience Award, Heartland Film Festival, Winner - Christopher & Dana Reeve Audience Award, Williamstown Film Festival, Winner - Best Comedy, Dam Short Film Festival, Winner - Best Short Film, Sedona Int'l Film Festival.

    Wow, what a great movie! Music was a little too musical at times, but a great story and acting. You really end up investing a lot to these two =D
