Well, I don't DP much--that's not to say I don't shoot much (though I don't)--but usually on my shoots I'm more of a videographer, but I get a real live DP credit on this one. They had it storyboarded and shotlisted, scouted, etc. before I came onboard, but I had input on composition, exposure, DOF, etc.

This was done in about 3-4 hours, in available light save a for a reflector'd shot that didn't make the final cut, on my XL2, on the factory defaults. 4:3, 24p.

Wrong category? The only other one I saw that might fit was "Critique my work" (or whatever it's called). . .I wasn't really looking for a critique, per se, just to share.

Nicely shot and edited.

My only complaint is that the "person hit by car" gag has been used so many times in commercials and movies now. I think they used it 50 times in the On The Lot shorts alone, and each time they thought it was new and funny.

R,

Wow, no kidding! ha ha

That and the "Man gets punched and flies 20 feet in the air" gag
