Afterwards this short film left me feeling happy and excited for some reason and i would suggest it to anyone who likes feeling that way! The actors of course do a great job, overacted yes, but it's clearly on purpose. Whenever I tell someone about it I get the sense of welling up again just from re-telling it to them. We often find in ourselves a longing to receive approval from others. This is not your typical Hollywood movie. It's rare that I get a link I can forward to everyone on my email list.
This short film had loads of potential to end beautifully and leave viewers smiling with contentment. Look it up and watch it.

It gives the example that validating another person can have a ripple effect where the consequences may affect them not just for that one day, but may possibly create a wonderful memory that lasts throughout their lifetime.
I just enjoyed T J Thyne's acting. The movie is filmed in black and white for no other reason than that it looks good. People work hard on educational categories, and we want to encourage them to make more! If that is so, what would be special about 12:12. He fails at first, of course. The plot it simple, a man gives out free validation. After winning recognition at a number of national festivals, Kurt posted Validation online last year.
Then I saw: 16minutes 23 seconds!. It's well shot by director Kurt Kuenne and is a feel good fable that comes to a stop just around about the time when cynical embittered nihilists feel their patience might just end This was an adorable story of a man validating parking tickets while brightening ordinary people's days. Don't miss this one--and pass it along! Validation can speak strongly to each one of us, because it makes us think of the ways in which we ourselves seek validation, or the ways in which we validate others. Winner - Best Narrative Short, Cleveland Int'l Film Festival, Winner - Jury Award, Gen Art Chicago Film Festival, Winner. In fact, the man with the camera who makes a brief appearance in the earlier film, returns as the main character in this one, which we don't realize until we see the scene in which the two movies intersect. He knows us and He loves us. By the end of this 17 minute film I was beaming.
If you must criticize another person's hard work, then be nice about it. I can guarantee you'll be glad you did. Please use your vote to express your harshest feelings. And now for something lighter… At first you might think Validation is about faith. Enjoy the laughter, the feeling of your eyes tearing up, the joy, and above all the validation that this film so eloquently expresses. I've told so many people about it and wish I could show them! I just forwarded the Flixxy link to another very large group of friends who also work in special education.
But it didn't fulfill what I had hoped. One of the most beautiful short movies I've seen. And he still really loves us! If you want to download you have to send your own contributions.

There are many films out there that may take two hours to tell a story that would not have the same impact as this one will in 16 short minutes. I've lost count of how many times I've been grateful for YouTube.
Faith in the good nature of human beings. I thought the needing was very cute too and came together nicely. Your words inspired me and made me laugh. Or so you might think. These are among the best phonics worksheets, games, videos and flash cards you will find online. Thyne is perfectly cast as Hugh Newman, the uber-naive parking booth guy who works at the end of a darkly lit hallway and validates customers parking tickets while validating their lives at the same time. You are so talented and your camera work is beautiful.
A simple film who could be defined as motivational. But he told me to wait and watch. The producer meant every thing he did in it. Maybe I noticed some minor flaws in performances of the other actors but that's not a deal at all. I hope all of you watch this video are as touched by it as I am. It saddened me that such a wonderful little film was slightly marred by such a quick wrap-up, seeing as with a little more time and thought, the ending could have fit in perfectly with the rest of the film. You'll probably never look at the time of 12:12 the same way again.
Thanks for sharing this Kpriss! Hugh does all he can think of in attempting to validate Victoria and win a smile from her, but he is distressingly unsuccessful. Except as he is going out to get his drivers license renewed, he sees a girl and instantly falls in love. He finds out in the end that the good deeds had been doing for people in the past, that he thought were not changing anything or anybody, actually changed the lives of even the most hardened hearts and in turn find him the complete happiness that he had been searching for the whole time. All with comprehensive Teacher Notes included. He tries hard to please her, to give her what it is that she is missing to no avail.
You'll see what I mean. There are before, while and after watching activities. However, unfortunately the film goes rapidly downhill as it turns away from the original plot line, and the main character becomes depressed, only to quickly wrap things up with a hasty and undeveloped happy ending it was her mom?! Whether he chooses it or not will remain for you to see. Giving the best of yourself to others is the greatest reciprocal gift you can give to yourself. I liked how he was always so positive throughout the movie and had a good reason for what he was doing. Thyne from Bones teaches ourselves should not miss any occasion for a nice warm smile and always inspire others around us to keep smiling.
