  1. PS: (nice website) I tryed to post this on youtube but it was too long.

    It definitely has potential. There are some obvious technical errors (dubbing etc) which I’m sure your aware of so I wont go into them. As far as negative aspects I found that some scenes were too long and some of the acting was a bit forced, although I’m critiquing this as if I saw it on SBS. The initial introduction of the show and character building section in front of the computer were too long but I guess necessary. Although I’m being extremely picky which I’m sure is what you want….

    From the television section on the video really picked up with some quite witty (if heavily inspired) humor and was very entertaining. The bit before Gary meets the Estonian vampire needs to be re-shot. The bit by the creek with the ghost needs more light but it’s all quite nicely shot. At some points it really clicks and feels very professional, other points could use some work. I think it would benefit from a re-think about every aspect of the show and slight script, visual and audio tweaks. Then re-shoot it all. It has a lot of potential and is very entertaining and you should be proud of it. At the moment I would rate it 8.5/10 and all my criticisms are very picky. Well done Nicolai, this could easily be a 10.

  2. Thank you very much for your feedback, Ben. We will work on making scenes more concise. The updated version, we feel, is considerably better.

  3. Very impressive, Reuben and Nicolai. I think, however, you should make each specific scene shorter and more succinct. Make some of the dialogue punchier (like the phone scene, which is too long) and some more ‘natural’ facial expressions would go a long way. I would give it 8/10

    Actually, those are our natural facial expressions. And we have found a much better way of doing the phone scene. Although, some scenes will be getting even longer. Anyways, thanks for the feedback John.

  5. Good stuff. You should probably update this page more often. When can we expect further installments.

  6. electromuskrats Says:

    You’re right. We should update more. We’re a bit tied down with production at the moment.

  7. Hey, I had fun filming the Orange Peeler scene the other day, can’t wait till next time!
