What do you think of our $150 Holocaust Short?

Hello NFSers!

I was going to keep this short private, but I'm pretty confident in this community to bring great feedback to our work.

I made this for Project Greenlight this year, and made it to the top 200. Seems they're looking for a comedy this year, as most of those who advanced were in the comedy category.

Nonetheless, I'm very happy with how it came out. Would love to hear your thoughts! I'd be glad to talk shop and answer any questions...

A Couple Notes:
-All actors were paid with pizza! (The Great Motivator) And this was the first film shoot for all of them.
-Nazi Costumes were rented from a theatrical company, the rest were handmade.
-Shot in my basement over 4 hours time.
-There is only 1 line in the whole piece, created to tell an entire story with almost no words spoken.
-Shot on C100, graded with FilmConvert.
-Almost all sound is Foley, with the exception of the lake flashback.

As someone already pointed out in the comments , the lighting was inconsistent which made a little confusion.BTW the pic quality was pleasing to the eyes.
I feel the flashback scene at 01:32 greatly disturbed the rhythm of the story.Maybe you could have shown that scene at the very begging.
Other than that it was amazing overall.
