    Hey Guys, I have a new short film. I was in a joke shop and I saw this hand.

    What can I say? I was inspired by it to make a film. Mind you, some would

    say its in bad taste, others would say its funny. Either way, let me know

    what you think. http://www.willweber.blogspot.com/

    That was fracking BIZARRE! :D And kind of gross. Yet it didn't deter me from chowing my pizza. Definitely "original".

    I don't know about other people here, but I thought it was original, funny, and new. As always, you managed to do some amazing stuff with your camera. Keep up the good work! Thanks for posting your films. :)

    Is this one filmed at your house?

    Na, we were up in North Springs Arkansas for spring break. My family and I were just staying up in a little cottage in the valley.

    good music choice for it.

    well done :)

    A film's meant to tell a story, and I have to say although your film doesn't remotely seem like a multi million dollar production in the least, but you really do have it in you to tell a story with your films :)

    I generally like your camera techniques too ;)

    Glad I wasn't the only one who thought that. Just wondering though, did you get the girls' parents' permission? And what did they have to say about story? (If I read the credits correctly, you're all related?) :p

    Damn, beat me to it. A few more submissions for the approval of the masses:
    - Everyone give him a hand!
    - What a handy prop.
    - That video was so good I could hardly even handle it!
    - A handsome concept.
    - Hands down that was the best video I've ever seen!
    - Was that film scripted by your hand?
    - The girl and the prop went hand in hand.
    - Hands off, this one was hot!
    - You must have had your hands full with that project.
    - Interesting directorial decisions; you must have had your hands tied on a few of those.
    - A contract with a major production company is in hand for you!
    - This shows promise; you should keep your hand in filmmaking.
    - Well I suppose now that it's finished, this piece if off of your hands.
    - I should keep this video on hand for a special occasions.
    - Well, on the other hand...
    - I know! I know! My commentary is getting out of hand!
    - But he did really set his hand to that one.
    - It was nice that you were able to take a hand from your prop selection on that one.
    - Etc.

    Okay, I'm finished. Thank you for humoring me.

    Thankfully we are all related. I'm not so sure I could get away with stuff like

    that if I wasn't related to the people I put in my films. :)

    It says in the credits; "Clap your hands and say yeah" I actually recognized it from radio play but couldn't for the life of me think of the artist/title. :eek:

    And whw5, what did your folks say about the end result?

    It was pretty well received by everyone in my family, except my mom. ;) I guess she didn't really like the idea of her daughter sucking the thumb of a hand. I think she is coming around though.

    I think you do a nice job of evoking the wonder and playfulness of human beings as "discoverers."

    I might take out the cooking scene at the end. The images are so much about the girl and the power of her frivolity -- the ending seems to really foreground the prop (rather than the relationship people have to the prop).

    Good work, though!
