This just blows my mind. That you tend to use minimal lighting and usually it's "back-lighting". And that you can successfully tell a story with that and in a 2 hour mark. Your work is rich and full of care and technique, I love it.
It's pretty amazing how, if you nail the colors and look of the light, your brain just sort of pattern matches and fills in all the details. I suppose it's like the shower scene in Psycho, my brain has already filled in the most nightmarish parts happening in the dark. The color choices made in your work routinely blow my mind, inspiring stuff!
