Warning: strftime(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /usr/home/pixelorange/public_html/film-releases/talkback/comments-display-prep.php on line 164

I found this animation piece to be too ltearil, and therefore too clumsy. I would have worked more abstractly myself, told the story through inference (or not at all it's such a strange idea in the first place; not a bad idea, just one that's better left to the imagination), perhaps using the shadow puppets she seems to be using for Lake Tahoe. It just doesn't come off, in my opinion, and when the snow lover starts to melt it's really grotesque, and the distorted reality of that intrudes upon what should be a more subtle process, an almost metaphorical thing: the perfect lover who inevitably slips away, leaving nothing but a chill in the air. At least that's what I think.
