Ways to Avoid Surveillance

Postby Graham » 22 Aug 2014, 23:07

Look, we were out of town, we don't know what Alex did, but clearly he needs to get the hell away from eeeeeverything this week.

Let's find out how, with Ways to Avoid Surveillance!

I love it! However, the music seemed... off... at some points? Not sure why.

for only being 3:30 long that seemed like it dragged.

I'm a big fan of works where the bulk of the communication taking place is non-verbal, and "X ways to Y" videos usually do it really well. This week was no exception - Alex nailed it in every scene, and sold performances from James and Beej too. Nicely done.

There was only one teeny detail I got a little distracted with during the "body double" scene. I know you guys wouldn't be too keen on getting make-up all over your fancy, expensive cameras, but it seemed a little unrealistic to have Alex motioning around the outside of the lens. Not sure if would have even been plausible or worth the risk, but having the brush and (fake) lipstick applied directly to the camera would have felt a lot more natural.

If it was in first person from Beej's perspective, wouldn't just around the outside of the lens makes more sense? You don't usually have cosmetics applied directly on your eyeballs.

Is... that password website real? Because it sounds like a good way to steal people's passwords.

Watching more closely this time around, I like how it looks a bit like Alex's laptop gains more and more stickers from the start of the video onwards... :-)

It's hard to see with the video resolution, but I want to believe that when he's typing his password across 3 different keyboards, that they have Cyrillic, Hebrew and Navajo keyboard layouts...
While no one overhear you quickly tell me not cow cow.
but how about watch phone?
