Erica Murphy 9/27/2006 2:33:25 PM

This is awesome Alisha! It has a lot of tension to it. The fear that a car will come over the road. I know you knew they weren't coming, but as a viewer, I feel nervous. I think that it works well. I have a hard time looking away because I want to make sure baby is alright. I've never seen anything like it.....and I LOVE IT! See ya in the winner's circle.


Bob Cournoyer 9/27/2006 2:43:29 PM
