@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.

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 )

Anyways on the film. It was really well done and brings up a great point about how addicting popping bubble wrap really is.

I was. I actually dropped out last fall but I'm still out there every once and a while.
There are actually a few of us on here, I think most students in the art department have accounts but either they aren't very active or just not very well known.

@03:10I actually don't think the Audio is that bad. I feel it kind of gives it it's own tone, like adds to it.

I think it could be better in some parts, but I kind of like that crackling sound for this film.

arionquill Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010   Filmographer
@03:10Perhaps. I may put a link to the same video on YouTube here anyway, since that file was an MPEG-2 with higher quality sound and picture. For some reason it went to YouTube fine but wouldn't upload to dA, probably just my internet connection, but who knows. I may even do that for all my video deviations, since I've really had to compress them to upload them, and though they all had a reduction in picture quality, this one also sounds distorted to me.

Mewshi Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2010
I realize it definitely sounds distorted. and the actual dialogue portions sound... not good. But the sounds effects I really like their sound. But I'd really like to see the version on youtube to compare, so I know what you're talking about a bit more.

I think the addiction starts when you're a kid. As a kid it's just so fun to pop bubble wrap! My parents kept me from doing it though because they wanted to save it for their own storage needs. Now I don't even feel the urge to pop bubble wrap (well, maybe about 10 bubbles but that's it) because my parents got me into the habbit of saving it for "just in case" needs instead XD
So now I just I have a pack rat problem... GREAT!
Really awesome video though! It had humor but it also brought the message through to the audience. Especially when he's trying to quit cold turky. God, I could just feel the anxiety he had
