Ljetos sam imao avanturu sa jednim studentom, koji je radio u jednom hotelu kao recepcioner. Kao i mnogi studenti iskoristio je ljetnu pauzu da zaradi nešto para kako bi mogao nastaviti studije. Samouvjereno me je ubjedio da se necu pokajati ako ga upoznam i da ga se nikada neću postidjeti na bilo koem mjestu.
Zaista je tako i bilo, sjajan momak, spolja jak i izgrađen muškarac, navikao da samo radom može doći do željenog cilja, a skriveno ipak dječak koji je željan ljubavi, poljubaca i nježnosti.
Ono što me posebno impresioniralo je izgrađen osječaj za pravdu i poštenje koje se danas može sresti samo u nekim djelovima Crne Gore – van Podgorice i većih gradova.
Nasuprot njemu, mnogi studenti se odlučuju da na “lakši” način dođu do novca, pri čemu žrtvuju dostojanstvo i još po nešto, a na šta tačno mislim pogledajte u ovom kratkom filmu Elliot Londona koji mi se izuzetno dopao.
A recurring theme of the 2010 IRIS shorts has been films of few, if any words and this beautifully rendered work from the pen of co-writer / director Elliot London perfectly exemplifies the art of silent story telling. And it all centres around Eric; a college student who seemingly has it all; the looks, the intellect and the love of a long-term companion. Only just how well do you know your partner? For this is a work that arrives with a twist in its tale, as the trust and betrayal narrative turns the tables on a day in the life of a seemingly normal student.
Along the way, co-writer Gregory Phelan provides his audience with subtle hints here and there, gradually building up to the surprise conclusion. It is one that as with all twist endings, some may have already guessed, whilst to others the revelation can only add to the overall enjoyment of a well-executed piece that in this instance, is lovingly accompanied by the emotional piano score of Mark Chiat, one that perfectly conveys the unspoken feelings of lead actor Brian Estel. As a dialogue free work, this compelling short packs quite an expressive punch. Need more be said?

- Plot: 306 is a film that makes the viewer question: Is the closest person in your life normal? A family member, friend, or a lover? What is the norm that we are suppose to follow in life? What is perceived as normal on the outside is usually just a daily costume, which we as people like to dance around in to assimilate into society. The question is: Who is Eric Hays? Or more specifically: What is Eric Hays hiding? 306 gives the viewer a chance to see a secret that no one else gets to see. Written by Anonymous
