Validation – Award winning short film

So many of us live our lives thinking that The Secret to a happy successful life is “Out There” somewhere

What if – instead – we decide to experiment with the idea that there is no “Secret” that needs to be discovered “Out There” – what if we live as though everything we ever dreamed of can be found simply by being happy and sharing that which is always available to us…

A Smile :)

“Validation” is a heart warming 16 minute movie that shows us the power we have to uplift others. Highly recommended. (Click the title to see a bigger screen). Starring TJ Thyne & Vicki Davis. Writer/Director/Composer – Kurt Kuenne.

Winner – Best Narrative Short, Cleveland Int’l Film Festival, Winner – Jury Award, Gen Art Chicago Film Festival, Winner – Audience Award, Hawaii Int’l Film Festival, Winner – Best Short Comedy, Breckenridge Festival of Film, Winner – Crystal Heart Award, Best Short Film & Audience Award, Heartland Film Festival, Winner – Christopher & Dana Reeve Audience Award, Williamstown Film Festival, Winner – Best Comedy, Dam Short Film Festival, Winner – Best Short Film, Sedona Int’l Film Festival.

    T.J., you’re awsome ! Your smile is very contagious in this movie, your play is wonderful … Living in France, I’m actually watching the new episodes of “Bones” and I really appreciate your character. It seems that your playing is very natural and match perfectly your personality, isn’t it ?
    Next time you’re passing by the Eiffel Tower, could you please give me your secret ? In exchange, I can give you mine for a living in great shape …
    Sincerely,

    CoachPatrick

    It was a wonderful film and i learn from this movie that if you want to get something you should never give up. Smile is the beginning of acquiantance that may develop into a friendship. Smile always brighten our life…..

    A wonderful short film. A smile can change your world if it genuine and from the heart. It is must and a sincere way to say thankyou. To make somebody happy.
    And quite possible you can build friendship, relationship and brighten life.
    A environment of positive life can be created.
    Yes I could also could not hold back my tears, but doesn’t happy things have this impact.

  6. Somebody said “A smile is a little curve that straightens many things out.” How true it is! The film validates & reaffirms my belief that we get only what we deserve. To get more become more deservable. Smile begets smile. But to smile(which is not just a lip service)one needs to be lover of oneself. If not nothing stands the test of time…
