A lonely and desperate plumber resorts to extreme measures to get the girl.

Filmed on an HVX-200 with Redrock M2 and using some pretty basic lights and a homemade dolly that ended up working pretty well, and you'll see it used in more stuff real soon.

I had the good fortune of seeing this a week or so ago. We've already talked about it on AIM, but I'll say it again, I loved this movie.

that was really cool, but the sound went a little of compared to the picture so it was annoying but apart from that i really enjoyed it (i thing the audio problem may have been from my comp)

Yeah, audio went out of sync for us at one point too. Pausing and starting again fixed it.

I rather liked this, particularly after googling '811' to find out what it was all about. I particularly liked the opening shot, pushing in on the guy on the phone. That looked really fab.

I've got to say the film quality was great, but the sound was at best average. There isn't much to the story but I liked it, how ever I wouldn't call it a scarry movie nor a funny movie.

Over All: Good

I liked this quite a bit. I definitely think this type of subtle humor is much better then the other, more nonsensical style you've used in the past.


Also, top notch camera work. The dolly was nice to see (Since I was almost expecting a zoom out).

Great editing as well. The ending was well played and properly insinuated...

I'm having the same audio/video sync issues on my end as others have had.

It appears to be a problem with the way the movie is loading. Like Tarn said, try pausing it and then playing again. That seems to clear it up.

I had the same sync problem. Pausing and playing again fixed it, but you might want to fix that somehow.

I lol'd at the fine scene. Well written, shot, and delivered. The audio in the crawl space was pretty bad, a voice over could remedy that. I know their lines probably weren't significant, but it bothered me that I couldn't hear them. I really liked this though, very well done. Great ending, and I really liked the music in the credits. 5/5

This was an all around well done film. I have to say, A+ with the camera work, the use of available locations and even the credit sequence didn't have a fudge.

Sound synch problem happened, but I the recording was good for all but 1 line (When he's telling him to go back farther and check the pipes at the end.) but I didn't subtract a star for it. The rest made up for it in my opinion.

Thanks, guys. I'll try to get that audio problem sorted out, but I have no idea what's causing it.

I just watched this. It wasn't as good as Everything's Coming Up Roses. But it was still very enjoyable. I thought that the sync problem was intentional though, and quite frankly, I actually thought it was funnier that way razz

Thanks, Smoorns. Audio has always been one of my weak points, as I am not great at controlling it. I usually do most of the behind the scenes work, except for mic operation, and pretty much the only thing I look at is whether or not the audio peaks. Other than that, it's just "plug it in and record". Someday I hope to meet someone who knows a thing or two about audio production who can give me a hand with it. smile
