I never really liked the original Rapidfire, but this one was a lot better. Good job.

I liked how it seemed to reference some past films.
Low quality Youtube sketches? Amazing!

I knew it! James IS Superman!

The humour was kind of undercut though after that seagull flew into frame.

Quite a few camera tricks I don't think we've seen before here, most notably the panning from above.

Poor Jeff Greenwood, he's fallen so far since graduating as class president and valedictorian. :cry:

Also, you seem to have very seamlessly cloned Matt in these shorts. Kudos!

Oh man, there are so many good things about this video.

First off, it's Rapidfire. That gets an immediate thumbs up in my book.

Secondly, the shirt ad was great. The world needs more shirtless Graham.

Thirdly: Tim in a video! Yay!

Also, I found it amusing that in the scene where Superman/Clarke Kent shoots the bird down that there were actual birds in the background.

I was very impressed by the camerawork on the scenes with Matt and Paul giving out cards, it really looks like you guys had a crane for that one.

Finally, I'm in two minds about the return of Rodriguez and Riley. It's pretty funny once or twice, but I think those scenes need some more progression between them. Overall though, I really enjoyed this video. Looking forward to seeing the rest of the series!

How could you possibly move the camera upwards?

Rapid Fire 2: Now even more rapidi....er... and fier...ier... I need to work on that.

Awesome all around. (yay for the warriors of Darkness)
And Morgan would get my vote

"I like birds"

Question, during the start of the police scean the camera movements almost looks like a crane shot, how was that done? (well unless you actually had a crane)

I let loose a manly squee of delight as soon as I saw the video title. Riley and Rodriguez return! Awesome stuff! I hope this one is another five parter.

Great video. My wife is going to love the cafe scene. Paul really is a good Evil Overlord.

Kathleen of course looks fetching.

I think Graham should dress as a birdwatcher regularly.

Morgan had clothes on, how odd.

YAY! Very good and funny!

I like the bird bits and the Riley Rodriguez sketch. Also the costumes in the ticket scenes.

The return of the Warriors of Darkness and Paul playing a cynical teacher/prof, Tim gets an uncredited speaking role (excellent foil to Paul's meek "I like birds."), Riley 'taking the long road' yet again, and

Shepard '08

-Vision
-Trousers

Elect Andrew Shepard


:lol:

Thank you. It was great and, though I don't like to impose or get my hopes up, I hope we see more RF in the future. :)
