My patience level doesn’t often allow me to get terribly engaged in online video of much length. That said, this fun little production piece, designed to showcase a bit of video editing software, didn’t lose me for even a second. For those trying to enjoy the holiday weekend without an excess of online distraction, I still think it’s worth the time investment. And for those hiding from a family picnic in an upstairs bedroom, it’s entertaining enough to watch twice! Be sure not to miss the extra scene after the credits. Some moments of the plotline stereotyping work better than others, but the “hipster flirting” @ 5:30 is so pitch perfect it could carry the entire video if it had to. Gha! They even hit the soundtrack dead center.
Plus, it’s tightly edited, free to watch, and (if what I’ve been reading is true) better than what’s on screen at the cineplex right now. Why go see a summer blockbuster when you could make your own this holiday weekend?
