I second the nomination for Graham being the next Doctor.
Anyway, I was entertained throughout, but Morgan, at the end was the funniest part of this to me.
Good job all around!

Those slow couch zooms were awesome. Obnoxiously buzzing Tally during the fire alarm got a genuine belly laugh from me, as did the subsequent Graham lobby escape. I also really liked that the balloons and giant cheque were clearly right behind Jer, but Graham didn't give a shit and poof'd anyway.

That really makes me laugh too, and I'm not really sure why.

It was "Going Postal" by Terry Pratchett, yes. It just happened to be what I was reading at the time in real life, and I had it in my bag at the shoot. But sure, I'll take credit for unintentionally producing a totally perfect prop. :)

I laughed so hard when Morgan came back for the balloons.

Great writing James. :)

Oh, yeah, can't forget props to James for solo writing credits. Definately well done. Maybe we'll see more of such from the LRR team?

Some solid acting, too! Though I personally wasn't sold on Graham's characters "need" to escape the situations by means of ninja smokebomb. However his phone conversation with the client was awesome. I could almost hear the guy on the other end of the line! Still the interaction with the boss was done better in "Sick Day", in my very humble opinion.
Matt does play "the suit" quite well (a regular thing? Let's hope so). And Tally in the apartment with buzzing and alarm cracked me right up.

Enjoyable, as always! :D

Once more, well done gentlemen! Well do- Look! An obvious distraction! *POOF!*

Congratulations to James for a well done script.

Btw, what was on the back of Graham's shirt? Was that a hole, or was there something stuck to him? It didn't detract from the film (if anything it added an extra laugh), but I watched it a second time to make sure I did see something there.

I liked how, after Jer asks Morgan and Bill whether 'they know this a%&hole', they don't get upset or debate the fact that a total stranger just called their friend an asshole, but indirectly just agree ;-)
Great video :-)

Nice one.

The best bits were the buzzing with the fire alarm going off and the very end where Morgan runs for the balloons.

I should have expected Morgan's character to come back for the balloons because you left them on the screen for so long (it was either that, or a hilarious "running off screen, stage right" bit) but it was still funny when it happened.

Also? I must not have lived in buzzer buildings for very long or perhaps Tally's character is more lackadaisical than New Yorkers are, but if my soon-to-be-ex boyfriend was coming up to see me, I would not be calmly reading a book. I wouldn't even have let him into my apartment, but would have met him downstairs.

Now I'm more awake:
1. good writing James
2. sorry, Tally acted you guys off the screen
3. the security camera was fine, not sure what people are complaining about. Probably something obvious, but I'm curious how you got it to rotate
4. I'm looking forwards to how many times Matt will fire Graham
5. Tim, subtle

I absolutely loved this video. Well written, well shot, well done!

Also, I watched this video for the first time then started smelling smoke. Evidently someone in the dorm had to make a quick getaway.

EDIT 4-16-09: Evidently the smoke I smelled was from elsewhere in the graduate dorms, which were on fire. It's a bit unnerving that I didn't hear the fire alarms, though.

Also, I nominate Jer for the "Morgan van Humbeck Grinning like an Idiot in a Shot" award.

Very well done guys. The new non-cH eps are looking up!

Btw, there should be an episode of Loading Time ready within the next week or two that covers this video and other stuff. So stay tuned for that.

I started giggling like an idiot during the lobby escape shot. I love Graham's little scamper as he runs out the back door.

I like to think that LRR characters live in a very specific region of Bizarro World where boring has the opposite meaning, but the exact same negative connotations. It explains quite a bit.
