The pretty girl sure must love you!!

chyyeeeaah. she actually uses the isomac almost as much as i do. and she fed our one-year-old a full-on double ristretto latte on his birthday (no sweetener, of course).

Anyways, if you need/want more space, I could offer your hi-res a spot on my website, just drop me an email.

much obliged, tim. the version posted is about 10MB in size ... i can do anything from there to a 1GB full-DV quality version. (har -- a bit much, to be sure)  at least then we could talk meaty issues (like where i have room to improve my naked shots).

Tell me, how many times did you fall over the boxes before finding your masterful pratfall?

it was just one take, rcs. i, er, "lucked out." i knew it had to be good (and that the female holding the camera was not going to sit there all day shooting my moronic antics), so i just gave it a run and GASHED open my johnston & murphy dress shoes on that gravel. serious casualty there. and my arms were pretty scraped up. but it turned out pretty nice and nerdly, in my opinion. that corduroy blazer and the massive hair now kind of remind me of the napoleon dynamite vibe a little bit.

the hardest thing about the whole deal was shooting all that footage before i opened the box! it was killing me, putting all that tape ON the thing when i wanted to be taking it OFF. i was thinking, "this is lunacy. i WANNA SEE MY MACHINE."

question: does anyone here know about the ikea commercial i spoofed by putting my old machine by the curb, in the rain? maybe it's just my own private joke ... but that was the point.

Yep.  I've seen the lamp ad.  Great vid!  I really felt your pain with that old machine.

Great work man!

Being a filmmaker myself I have to say that you did a damn nice job with the equipment you had. Nice editing, cool song.

I also love the way you parodied that IKEA commercial. It almost inspired ME to do a short film about the life of cars. :)

Hope you're loving the machine. Coffee is good. ;)

whew! i think that ad won a cannes lion for the best tv spot one year. anyway, that was the point of the emotional, "capresso-on-the-street" shots. you're kinda supposed to feel bad for it.

i cannot tell you how glad i was that it rained that day.

you did a damn nice job with the equipment you had

imovie on a mac computer, man. that's all i have to say. makes it easy.
