    Very Good.
    I enjoyed it till the from beginning to end.
    I do have one question though. The description says, they make a discovery about each other. What does the Father discover about the son?

    Producer Michael McCleary

    As a Writer/Producer/Director I like to make productions about real every day people and situations, which means that I tend to find a lot of peoples work pretensions! I don't have this problem with you film however. 

    I find it to be quite charming as a concept as I haven't seen anything like it before, but the way that its acted and edited give it a sense of high production values.

    This is the first short film that I have watched on the BBC's film network, and as such I'm glad to say it's setting a high standard for the rest of the productions that I am about to watch as I have rated your film a rightful 5 stars.

    All the best,

    Michael McCleary.
