Ang pagbibigay ng kaunting panahon upang ito ay mapanood-iboto-ibahagi, ay isang napakalaking tulong upang magkaroon ng tiyansa na magwagi sa kompetisyong ito at upang makagawa pa ng mga pelikulang pupukaw sa mga damdamin.
Nais ko din ibahagi ang ilang “Review” sa aming maliit na pelikula – ang Huling Tawad (Last Haggle), na sadyang nakakapagbigay kasiyahan sa aming mga damdamin.
Narito ang ilang Komento:
1. ” This short film challenges the individualized “perception” of the viewers. It raises this fundamental question: what lesson(s) on humanity the film delivers? I saw a “buyer” and a “seller” haggling on the price of the guitar. And yet, in a very subtle way, the Director implies a bitter-sweet “past” between the two principal characters. He then uses that item (guitar) as a medium/bridge/link in allowing these two individuals to cross path, meet in a new time and place, reconcile and patch up things under the spirit of forgiveness. Great “theme planning” on the part of the writer/director and a very realistic portrayal by two principal actor/actress.” -Francis Banaynal
2. “Huling Tawad (Last Haggle) is a concise but multidimensional film. Breaking down scenes would reveal a meaning or two that support the story and each theme aspect [Somehow shows (a journey towards) Matthew 6:12 and the obvious, the difficult art of haggling (for love/courtship or a good guitar)]. It is visually, acoustically, and semantically meaningful.” -April Hazel Gay Dela Cruz
3. “The story is simple but heartwarming naiyak ako….but forgiving the one you love for whatever misgivings he had done is all that matters….(ang pagpapaTAWAD ikanga ay higit pa sa TAWAD.)” -Josphine
4. “Brilliant short film! I love it!” -Ralph Dela Cruz
5. “Wel-thought-of; It is really from the heart, Awesome!” -Oneeleventwo010
6.”Kakaiba ito ah. Pinag-isa yung paghingi ng tawad sa pagtawad sa presyo ng gitara. Ibig sabihin, may nakaraan sila. pwede pala yun? ok ah.” -LJC Nelnav
7. “Great Job. Well done!” -Evelyn Mills
8. “Pretty good micromovie! Perfect.” -Oneeleventwo010
9. “Heartwarming. The story goes straight to the heart, like a melody that goes straight to the ears of one’s soul… and stays there.” -Noel Barcelona
10. “Simple story! awesome! -Palakanton
11. “Action speaks… it’s meaningful! i love it!” -Oneeleventwo010

18. “Wow. #lasthaggle’s has effectively shown in a short film every love story’s bitter sweet reality… :)” -Zita Buena
19. “Very direct to the point – how the lady empathized with the customer who did not have enough money to buy the guitar. It was the start of a relationshiip that would last a lifetime. Very simple yet powerful message. Very humane. Less dialogue but powerful message.” -William Ong
20. “Touched me.” -Malou Nocedo
