This is a super thought-provoking project. Y'all did an amazing job producing, filming, and interviewing for this short film. Congrats on a great project that really makes the audience think. I'd suggest adding some statistics and building up a bit of an introduction to pull people in more. Great job!

Firstly, thanks for picking this important topic, and my heart goes to the people impacted by War. Toran, Mazaher, it's nice to see you telling your story. The overall interviews and focus on solutions including education is well represented.
You could have done a little better in building the narratives. For example, talk about the details of the topic on slide instead of reading the slide when the same is on screen, or bring in more research and data to support your arguments.
However, this is a great video documentary and provokes a lot of thoughts. My suggestion would be to get more data points on wars and its impacts, and build a story around that.
Finally, the jewel on crown were your post-credit interviews :) Really thoughtful. It's nice to know the people behind the scenes and what they think of this video and experience personally. Great job guys.

Thank you for your support! Comments are closed for this year. Join us to look forward to next year's projects!
