The short turned out reasonably well. Good cinematography, good editing, good acting, etc. The two flaws: I showed my cards entirely too soon in terms of the reveal (well, as it is, there is no reveal); and the sound is really not all that good.

Just as the character is a product of his environment, the video is figuratively and, quite literally, "a product of my environment".
For whatever its worth, cheers.
