"This submission is a particularly stunning example of good cinematography using multiple elements to get the most artistic effect from the visuals; for instance, the use of black and white looks really striking, the outdoors locations are also stunning, the camera moves into close ups of faces and the actor gives a strong emotional performance, and the use of slow-motion also contributes to the drama and the visual beauty of the piece. That being said, none of those elements would combine will together without the help of a skilled edit - so kudos to an un-intrusive and beautiful edit which gives the cinematography so much credit."

 Stolen memories deep below the beach 

 I called for you and me, now won’t you leave me alone!"
