Worst Day Ever

Postby Graham » 13 Apr 2009, 11:36

Well, well, well... look who's got his own solo writing credit, James.
I hope you brought enough to share with the whole class.


Also, this was a bunch of fun to shoot.

You guys totally made that video so that you can now say that you have someone who has appeared and disappeared in a puff of smoke in a video. :p

Morgan's line at the end was awesome.

Wow. That was good. VERY VERY good. The smoke bombs, the voice mod when Graham disappeared... brilliant. I was actually laughing out loud! A rare occurrence, as normally the videos just make me giggle. This one was a real knee slapper for me, though.

Graham, I don't know why, but I keep getting this strange Doctor Who vibe from you in this video.... Maybe it was the loose tie and constant running away from things. I think you should be the next Doctor. XD

I like the subtle Tally kiss denial. Also laughs for Matt getting cast as a douche/manager/haughty big-wig again. Poor Matt! Some of us still love you!

Finally LRR has a video where a member of the crew disappears in a puff of smoke.
Nicely done.

Was the work the same place you filmed the Geometry Wars Documentary?


Nicely done all around, and now you have Graham who can disappear in a puff of smoke, and Matt who can appear in one. Now you just need someone who can do both.

Was the security cam shot done in post, or did someone have to pan back and forth the whole time?

I want to say how awesome it is that you guys picked a Terry Pratchett book for this, specifically Going Postal. Did you pick it at random or do guys actually read his stuff?

By the way, I made a profile just so that I could say that.

Terry Pratchett's Going Postal? Which seems to be the next Discworld novel to be adapted to the small screen.

Nice Pratchett placement, Tally's character clearly has excellent taste in reading material. :D Also, I was expecting Jeremy's character to explain ArMEGAdon to Graham at the end because of the comically ill-fitting suit jacket.

Love the fact that the full prize delivery crew was (or should have been) clearly visible from Graham's perspective. Talk about not seeing the bigger picture...POOF!

I've never heard of Terry Pratchett so I was just curious if the book was chosen specifically to fit the theme of the video or if it was just some unrelated coincidence.

It's like a mini-sequel to Ways to Abuse Shaolin, except there's only one ability you are abusing.

Also, very tight effect for each disappearance. Good stuff.

Another awsome vid guys! LOVED the disapering in hte smoke thing, and of course the smoke alarm, tho i know from personl experience running from a burning building with that much smoke is not fun! And i agree wtih the others, now we need somone who can both apper and dissaper in a puff of smoke!

Considering Going Postal is about a character who normal flees from trouble being forced to be responsible the choice could be irony.

Far more likely it was a just a random book in Graham's and Matt's apartment.

So during the KeiKon panel it was noted that whilst Matt has appeared in a puff of smoke, no-one has disappeared in one. I guess this video rectifies that by having Graham disappear in a puff of smoke in four separate occasions.

Great job guys.

Is this what happens when douche-persona Graham watches too many ninja flicks?

Very good video. I like how the opening was taken, with a mini-flash back of the main gimmick Graham's character uses, rather than jumping right into it. Having the smoke bombs set off the fire alarm was really funny, too. That must have been an adventure to get it all under control.

However, as one criticism, I saw that Jer's character was going to offer something positive right as Graham starting arguing with him, so the ending was kinda weak.
