@01:54I found the shots of the CCTV cameras here and at 02:56 to be powerful. As if saying, people are watching but not seeing. Well done.

@02:51Thankyou for your comment.

The three main focus points for the shots were birds, buildings and people/passing of time.

i felt they tied in with the title nicely, and birds like the homeless are vagrant, and the city is essentially their home.

I wanted the buildings to look oppressive, and emotionless, like the people around them. time passing quickly without a thought or care for what goes on around the ground.

@05:48This is one of the best short films I have seen for a long time. It's not a topic people often, if ever, discuss. This needs to be seen by everyone.
Amazing work.

@05:48Depth and compassion that is needed, and given as such. A very well done movie on a topic that I'm sure most people would really rather not talk about.

@02:51Gorgeous. It's a little hard to decipher the wording at times, but I love the shots of life. Although seemingly unrelated, together they weave an amazing picture of life and the world around us. This is an amazing piece. Well deserved DD.

@05:48I'm only a kid really, so whenever I see a homeless person I'm expected to look the other way, to not notice, but I do. I feel like I can't do anything, I can't reach into my pocket and find some money or some sort of reassurance to give to this stranger because my family wouldn't let me. This film shows the truth of homeless people for once, and I thank you for making this.

@05:48I have almost been homeless before. How this documentary came together is amazing. It is very true. People do look down upon you without knowing why. Also the level of professionalism in this film is just amazing. This is something that one would see on the Television. Thank you for not holding back.
