@04:53The therapist was portrayed very realistic and unlikeable.

Realistic because many people do think that way "now I can pay off my mortage after all" and unlikeable because she was most likely thinking he was a moron but he was only living through addiction, which is horrible.

You have to wonder about a therapist who doodles an orca, a tree, and a cat on her notes ;)

The group assignment from my Intermediate Film class. It was shown in Edinboro University's 2008 Fall Film Festival. We had a lot of fun going over the top in this one, especially sneaking behind the local post office to shoot a scene. :)

Our hero learns that addiction is hard to deal with, no matter what you're addicted to.

EDIT: After seeing a few comments about the sound quality, I played this back on my computer, and I think that in compressing the video the sound got distorted and deteriorated. So here is a link to the same video on YouTube: [link] This is an MPEG-2 file, so the sound and picture should be vastly improved. Of course, in all honesty sound was never this work's strong point, but this way you can hear it as it was meant to be heard.

Also, if you liked this film, you may like the other short film I have on dA, "The Stepford Student." [link]

Addict by ~arionquill is a great film about a secret addiction that many of us struggle with. Whether or not you want to give it up, I think this sums up how very serious it can get! ( Featured by ElectrikPinkPirate )
