    You haven't taken on board our previous comments then. This is simply awful.

    That made me laugh, I don't know if your countless mistakes, jump cuts, low audio, hearing objects falling on the floor off screen etc etc etc are genuine or set up. But fair dues to you, if you've managed to pull it off and the joke is on us the audience.

    Sorry to say I found that pretty tedious. Are you going for 'so bad it's good'? If so I think it missed the mark there too. The creidts kind of summed up the whole film - unnecesarily long, nothing happening, dull. THe only bit I liked was the very end bit where you've resized half of the image and matched the two images at the door frame - kind of made me wonder what was going on so that had some merit for me.

    If you are being serious, I'd go and look at some other shorts trying to do a similar thing - look at where the cuts occur, what they cut to, why do they cut to that etc. Then when filming you will have a better idea of what shots you need in order to add a bit of interest, dynamism etc.

    I kind of think you're taking the piss though

    Glad you liked it! I'm working on show 3 at the moment. It should go live in a week or so. Is it okay to continue to post in this forum?

    I'm not sure if you're trying to establish a Stephen Wright esque persona or you're attempting to convey the impression that you're a deluded idiot that thinks this is funny. On count one you fail miserably, on count two you succeed admirably.

    I'll admit comedy is a matter of personal preference and my opinion matters not a jot, but try this with a live audience at an open mic comedy club night somewhere. Then you'll know for sure if this works for more than one in a hundred....

    Put us out of our misery and tell us if it is a carefully staged and planned film but yet it is made to look like every mishap that can go wrong does go wrong. For me personally there are too many coincidences in it for them to be happening naturally, as you try something new at every opportunity to get a reaction from your audience.

    You must be kidding....
    Even if reading, you should already know the lines so you at least sound like you know what you are doing.
    Hiding the light might be a good idea and put something over it to soften it. Try dryer clothes the porn business uses them all the time for those "closeups".

    I actually thought this was much better than part 1 (not difficult). I even laughed when you kept repeatedly burning yourself on the pan. But then again I have been locked away editing today and I tend to lose my sense of humor when that happens.

    Curous - appealed to me a bit if only cos it was weird. I fear this appeal may be lost on most people, and after a few mins it was lost on me.

    It's really hard to create something even a bit risky and new with comedy so big you for trying - and nearly making it.

    Too long for the scene not to be dull. I liked the pizza boxes.
