I thoroughly enjoyed that. Very well planned and choreographed. Without the trick of foreshortening time by means of cuts, you had to keep the action and the gags flowing, which i thought you did remarkably well. Some of this required an incredible amount of planning. The lead actor was absolutely fantastic and excercised subtle expressions rather than the extreme (learned it from the stage) actions that I'd expect for an old time film - and I think this works well in this particular film which isn't attempting to be authentic "old film" but something shot a little "in the style of".
I don't think you were around when I posted http://www.videoforums.co.uk/user-vi...-director.html
which attempts to be more authentic (UPVC door aside) but falls short in the humour stakes.
