I thought it was alright. Would've been cooler with more dialog though. Also what was with the lighting it kind of flicked on and off for me.

the "lighting flicking on and off" is a mistake with the Rolling Stone player, that is not how the film is supposed to look. Seems to be randomly happening to people.

Kevin slack is in the building. Interesting. I really enjoyed this. It's pretty much just an extended director's cut of the Handwritten music video. Sort of like the Jesus of Suburbia video

thanks! Although to be honest this was always Benny and mines original idea. The music video was just a shortened version of this that we had to do for the label etc.. So the film isn't so much an extension of the music video as much as the music video is just a shorter version of the film with the band in it (in our minds) if that makes any sense. Either way thanks for watching!!

Yeah I didn't mean that as a negative thing, it was just an observation of a similar scenario. when Green Day made the Jesus of Suburbia short film, they also made a cut down version for the radio edit eithout dialogue. Did any initial discussions happen to have th record end up back in the hands of one of the two people in the couple at the end instead of the original musician? Also wish I could've come to the filming of this. I was going to drive into New York and try to be an extra but I had hockey

I actually haven't seen the Green Day film, I'll check it out. No, we always wanted it to go completely full circle and back to the original musician. We liked the idea of him never really becoming famous or his band ever getting huge so that him finding his beat up old record in a used bin would mean so much more to him. It just felt right to me to have it end that way.

It's all good about not making the shoot, hockey is much cooler

Was ok. For a short, I would've preferred no dialogue at all. Glad to hear that the flickering is a problem with the player and not a "stylistic" choice for the video. That really threw me off.
