Got a TEASER UP finally!

EDIT:
Here is the Youtube Version for those of you without quicktime:

So...
The feature length version of the original short film is winding down post production and the finish line is in sight. We're looking at about a 95 min runtime when all is said and done, but so far that feels like about 30 mins because it's so jampacked. Hopefully we'll get it distributed as soon as possible so you all can see it, but for now CX3 and I have provided you a little appetizer. Enjoy cool

Simple, and great biggrin

The guy really knows how to act with his body. Great movement and facial expressions. I look forward to this.

brilliant.

Fingerman is one of my all time favs here at fxhome. I'm so stoked that there is going to be a feature length version. Sign me up for a copy when it goes on sale

That was basically a perfect teaser for this film. Makes you want to know more, and uses a mischevious brand of humor.

Can't wait to see this one.

I wasn't a big fan of the original, though this one looks like it might be a lot more fun. razz

Gnome - hopefully others like you who weren't fans of the short will agree smile I can't even watch the original anymore without cringing at the production value. We've come a long way since then (that was 4 years ago), but making a feature length version was definitely A LOT MORE WORK than making a short. Thanks again all for the comments!

The teaser was great, can't wait to see more of it. Loved the final explosion of the car. You used a lot of Detonation Films stock?

Yea Detonation Films rocks. <----notice the period - that's for real smile

The version that played at Laszlo's festival was a rough cut but hopefully it was still a lot of fun for people. Glad to be a part of it Laz

Dear AJ,

Thank you for rekindling my love of Chris Cowan wearing suspenders. However, I do hope that I get to see some taped glasses in the final version.

Can't wait to see it.

Wow... summed up in one word, the teaser is:

Genius.

I cannot wait to see the full-release. How can I get my hands on something like that when it is released?
