    I've just come across Resignation on RU-clip, wow what a great concept story, hopefully a back and forward story is in the offing? Great work!

    I enjoyed a small part more then most of these end of the world flicks. But still had to amped up over the top Music, and a thought out ending. Nice but more of the same.

    The message that humans are destroying earth is clear. But why would a race of, apparently, superior intelligence go around destroying other planets if they're supposedly so intelligent?

      With all due respect, what's dumb is thinking that the beliefs of the antagonist are a direct reflection of the beliefs of the storyteller.

    You must understand that you're going to have to face the inevitable you rule for thousands of years for but one person that you know is already going to die because of sickness you stay behind why would you do that. when you can continue on ,humans do not appreciate or I understand why you get punished all the time understandably makes sense

    An interesting bit of a story and, overall, pretty well done. The acting and cinematography were better than most. The background music was a bit high in the mix, though, to the point of obscuring some of the dialog, which was already sparse. The music itself fit well, it was just the level.

    • Edith Lewis
      Edith Lewis Month ago

      It was powerful enough for God to sacrifice His only Son to die an excruciating painful and horrible death on your behalf, so that by accepting Him as Lord and Savior you could enjoy eternal bliss on a new and perfect earth. Jesus is the Way (to the Father), the Truth (no other religion), and the Life (eternal existence in pure happiness). He didn’t have to come to earth to suffer and die for you, but He loves you so much that He CHOSE to do it. No human could ever willingly endure such pain for ANYONE. Humans are wimps when it comes to the ultimate sacrifice. No human who has ever lived died like Jesus did. Love is THAT powerful!

Thank you for creating this video for me to watch and enjoy. It opens my mind and makes me wonder: "What is THIS (as in our existence) actually all about?" Where do we go as individuals when our time is up and WE are called to another plane of existence?!? Inquiring minds wanna know. But until that day, God Bless, Be Safe and...... Overnout

    The endings are sometimes left to the viewer to ponder and question, until they decide what makes sense to them. These open ended shorts are unique and special and very much appreciated. This story has two real endings which can be summed up, but that is the best part.

      It was like he had a hand in her death [maybe something in the tea?]. Soul mate suffering from some intolerable disease and they both came to a resolution this way? If so, I think he wanted to join her, to share one last connection, as the Earth gets blown away. Sort of adds to the heroism of facing an inevitable death. HaHa, this is a stretch alright, but how else to think about it.

    • Doug Stern
      Doug Stern Month ago

      It was like he had a hand in her death [something in the tea?]. Maybe she had a fatal disease that was too much to continue living? He resigned after seeing his love die with grace and dignity, and wanting to experience the same as the Earth gets blown away. Ha, ha, it's a stretch alright.

    Even though I enjoy movies like this and this short was very well done, I have to harp on the story a bit cause it did its job and invoked an emotional response ;) This big ball of light, aliens, god or whatever else this might be, (kinda looks like a cleansing of an invasive species, ahem humans), these beings should just come down here, scare the shit out of us and shake us up, giving us a stern warning to shape up or get wiped out. And then give us some time to do so. Would love to see a movie about that :)

    I watched 'Resignation' again this morning after initially discovering (and obsessing over) the film ~9 months ago. Then I arrived at the office this morning and immediately recommended the film to two more co-workers. The catharsis of 'Resignation' is so powerful...I keep coming back to it again and again to experience the endorphin-infused payoff of the final shot. The grand majority of short independent films fall narratively flat or ring hollow or loiter in the shallows of middling stakes with characters of little to no compelling attributes. No emotional investment is required; and no emotional release is rewarded. What I especially love about your movie 'Resignation' is the way it gently pulls the viewer through an unsettling emotional landscape, and ultimately lifts the viewer to a sublimation by the story's conclusion. Rare, and wonderful.

    • Mike Ozmun
      Mike Ozmun 3 months ago

      Thank you for this very kind and articulate comment! I can't tell you how encouraging your analysis of Resignation is for me. You hope, as an artist, that the layers of thematic intent will be recognized, but one never knows for sure if anyone else will see what you see when you create a passion project. So, thank you for taking the time to write this!

    What a nice, nice thank you and btw, you do deserve the accolades. I can so see Resignation as a series or a full length motion picture about this guy, who for all intents and purposes, is a fugitive. That's on my wish list as the story line just from that short was so compelling and so fresh.

      @Mike Ozmun RE: Upheavals...all I have to say is, Welcome to planet Earth where upheavals abound! But well done on sticking to filming in one form or another. I worked in Business Mgmt for many years and am well aware of excellent films --scripting, acting, directing & post production. And you have it. It appears as though you're from Austin. I spent my 1st 50 years in Texas. I still have family in Austin. Anyway, I cannot wait to see more, particularly the sequel to Resignation. Best, Linda

      Hi Linda! Thank you for watching, commenting and subbing! I had originally planned to follow this up with more exploration into this story, but the last couple years have involved some significant life and career upheavals. I'm currently working as a cinematographer on a couple of feature films written and produced by others, but when those are behind me I plan to turn my attention back to this channel and its content. Most of the videos you'll find on here, currently, represent my growth leading up to the making of Resignation.

    I had to listen to this, like, eight times to get this, since he has such a soft singing voice. But, here are the lyrics: _Somewhere now in a cold and lonely alleyway,_ _Somebody lays there believing no one cares._ _Tears he's cried have long since left their mark behind,_ _His hurting eyes, and on the papers lying everywhere._ _And show the world, that Jesus cares,_ _Show the world that he is there._ _It isn't really hard to see,_ _If you would take the time to believe._ _Molly's teddy bear is soaking wet with tears again,_ _As she cries from the pain on her bruises and her heart and her limbs..._ _She doesn't know what the simple words "I Love You" mean._ _Cos her Daddy's never told her,_ _And her Momma never holds her._ _Gotta show the world, that Jesus cares,_ _Show the world that he is there,_ _It isn't really hard to see,_ _If you would take the time to believe._ _Yes, show the world, that Jesus cares,_ _Show the world that he is there,_ _It isn't really hard to see,_ _If you would take the time to believe._

      @Mike Ozmun I found your channel because I've been looking for short films on RU-clip, but I saw this little music video, and liked it. I was curious about the lyrics because my own parents like songs like this, and sing stuff like it in church. I was wondering if they would want to sing _this,_ but realized they couldn't if they didn't know the words, so I added them. By the by, you have some great cinematography and editing. There are many filmmakers on RU-clip, some good and some bad, and I want you to know that you're one of the good ones.

    • Mike Ozmun

      Thank you! Great job on the lyrics. It never occurred to me that anyone would watch this, let alone want to know the lyrics. This is a song my musician brother wrote many years ago, and our mom absolutely loves this song. For Mother's Day a couple years back, we made this video for her. Thanks again!
