|Yeeeaa....Watch with caution. This is some action packed stuff. Bear with it, even though it's short.|

Hehehehe, this is classic! If only more of the "comedy-test-with-random-effects" genre could have this much thought put into them.

I shot this on 16mm for my final project in Sight and Sound at NYU. I made it because I saw an art film that just sat on one shot for like 5 minutes and did nothing. This was my sort of...parody of that. Heh, yea... sorry about the random effect....

Heh, excellent. I had to endure some of those 'arty' films myself, nice to see them parodied so effectively.

Yea, I thoroughly enjoyed making this film. It was so fun not to have to edit for my last project. I just took one shot, spliced some leader on the beginning and end of the film and boom I had a movie. I got a 100% on this for my final in the class believe it or not, because it accomplished it's objective (in a dark, quiet room full of wide-eyed film students who thought it was going to be a tragic film poem about lonliness!!! YES!!!!) Made at NYU - Tisch under Nick Tanis.

Normally I'm no fan of movies where something pops out and scares you after you sit staring at some serene scene for a full minute, but.. I don't know.. this was rather hilarious.
You could do a series with this Shaving Cream guy and sell T-shirts.

So you actually did this for your final project? That's pretty damn hilarious.

Yea, final project...while everyone else was busy taping together 45 or 50 cuts and 2 or 3 minutes of 16mm sound mag for their films, I just had one 30 second shot...and 2 clips of music. I wasn't a doosh about it though. I bought everyone salads and food and stuff to get them through the end of the course during our last day of editing. I spent the most time on Split - editing that thing to the music on a Steenbeck with some tape and a splicer ---- ridiculous I think I cut my hands and fingers on the splicer over 20 times during those 2 - 8 hour editing sessions. Shaving Cream Man was my sort of..... momentary capture of insanity after 6 weeks of super-intense guerilla filmmaking. Split was my masterpiece for the course. I actually went back to camera on that one for a couple shots that didn't turn out. I got to show the updated version as a side-feature after Shaving Cream Man.

That sounds like fun. People always do really heavy stuff for their finals too. Film students don't know how to have fun with stuff. My final was kinda an homage to crappy student films. It starts out all solemn with this guy depressed and drinking because this girl doesn't love him, and just as soon as you think he's just so depressed and the movie is not going to end happily, he decides life is worth living because he can still hunt and kill aliens. Or, as I wrote them in the script, "Teenage girls dressed like aliens". That took me like 3 hours and 4 rolls of film. These girls in my class both did 10 minute movies about relationships and they used like 16 rolls of film and spent two weeks editing it all together. Mine took me a day to edit. You just have to have fun with stuff.

Zactly...having fun is ultimately what it's all about. By having fun and making films - you learn while enjoying yourself - what a sweet job that you could be payed for some day, you know? Damn it feels good to be a gangsta....

Geez! That was stupid, funny, AND freaky. Word to the wise: dont watch it at midnight in the middle of a dark room. Anyway, good job. It really seemed to convey that "Just watch it, it's stupid" sense. Hahahahahah. Funny.

I’ve seen a bunch of .swf files floating around usenet with the same idea. It’s like, la la la… then someone’s head pops into the frame and they scream at the top of their lungs catching you off guard. Classic.
