It takes a lot of hard work, determination, and patience to go from the page to the ‘stage.’
So absolutely: congratulations!
This story put a smile on my face and I couldn’t help thinking, “it’s all true.”
But personally, the script worked for me more than the film itself. The direction by Ms. Daniel was as it should be; no fancy photography as to focus on the story. But distracting was the actors. Don’t get me wrong, they were perfectly cast. But they were too busy acting when they should have just read the lines as they would really say it.
Again, though, kudos for this accomplishment.

the script is awesome, but the film doesn’t deliver the idea behind the story… it all depends on the location – why didn’t you take the restaurant or even a pub or sth like this

I’m not sure what Alison used as far as camera. A lot have people have commented that it looks strange during closeups. I agree. Thanks for watching. everyone.

    Embezzlement by Alan Power

    John Redde has written a book and has kept it on his laptop not wanting anyone to read it. Patrick Hughes, his friend, comes to the opportunity to take it and read it but once he does, he finds out that it's the best thing he has ever read and so manages to get it published in his name. When John finds out, him and his friend Nicole Lynch must find a way to get the book back and to prove that Patrick's guilt. Even though there is no trace of it on John's laptop and just their words alone won't help, they find it hard to solve the problem. 20 pages
