"Hey Neil, I saw the rest of the DVD and I really liked it!  It was all very cool indeed. I think you should wright a song about Erfie and Chloe, a song where you sing in it, (I personally think that you have a very beautiful singing voice), and put it on their website. Thanks for creating the Mirror movie and the rest of the cool and interesting stuff on the DVD. It's all awesome!

Pro Film Critic Doug Gerash adds his two cents- here's a few excerpts:

"...Mirror is the story of a young woman (Emily Choi) who, like Mr. Slade, is endowed with unusual psychic power.  The drama of the story lies in the conundrum of the fact that she is largely unaware of these powers.  She has a good heart and finds herself applying her magic to those who are in need, such as the Buster Keaton-like Mr. Vincent (Eric Vincent).  After a colorful romp in the mountains with no one but herself, she discovers a stick.  Using her creative mind, she finally turns it into a colorful cane, which she presents to Mr. Vincent.  The cane imparts its healing energy to his gimpy leg, and voila, he is made whole again....

The Magoffin in the show is the pursuit of higher consciousness through a process of "clicking" Mirror's brain into a cooperative and empathetic level of consciousness.  This process is the holy grail of Mr. Slade's crusade to get humanity to transcend its current level of humdrum toil and reptilian violence into a more human and kind excellent original music score...The electric cinematography is truly excellent. Mr. Slade has utilized digital tape and applied a 24 fps progressive format creating a smooth, film effect, which indeed give the show a fine depth and continuity that would otherwise be lacking in a standard video format.  He also uses adept editing...the overall show has a pleasant and real feel to it.  The characters all touched by Mirror's gift, and we are left with a colorful, meditative film from the heart that contrasts with the standard mechanical features that are typical of American mainstream films.  It is tempting to say this film has some European nuances in it, a little Amelie, some Fellini touches.  Most importantly, it is a tribute to the New Cinema, where an individual can take a story, and with some mastery of some editing programs, create a personal vision on a scale unprecedented in the past.- Doug Gerash"

"Came back indoors and couldn't resist putting Mirror on my computer's DVD player even though I was not sure I'd have time to watch it all. Some synchronicity at work here: yesterday evening the tools appeared (thanks to my wife) which enabled me to fix the sound system on my computer which had been out of action for the last two months.

The Prelude is a delightful surprise and alone was worth the price of the DVD. Plenty of amygdala clicks going on whilst I was watching this. Particularly good to see the footage of T.D.A. Lingo and the Dormant Brain Research and Development Laboratory.

Then the main feature. WOW! Sat there with a smile on my face and my brain clicking all the way through it. Neil, it's AWESOME: gorgeously shot, beautifully sound tracked, and Mind-Blowing in concept. Will set aside some time this weekend to see it again, but this time on my TV and DVD player.

Congratulations and thanks again.

"The movie reminds us to see the “Magical” side of life. Mirror shows treasures are created from seemingly mundane things and moments when clicked forward with positive intension. “Child Play” life is not just fun, you can take it to the bank!

Great movie to watch with friends, because it inspires frontal lobes thought, and conversation! An interesting question to play with after the movie is, “how many watchers are there with the big binoculars?”

Watch without the Audio Commentary first, then with. There is meaning to every part of the movie, and it reminds us to train our minds to notice everything.

It is not necessary but reading or listening to “Mirror” in Frontal Lobes Supercharge may enhance the experience. [Note: This is now included in the DVD, and it's nearly a completely different additional 42 minute story].

Cover for DVD just being a “Mirror” is very cool.

Sounds and soundtrack are really really great. 

End of credits very funny. [Make sure and wait till ALL the credits are done- there's a surprise].

Great Bike! Great old truck!"
