Plot Device

On Tuesday I wrote 700 words about the new Magic Bullet Suite 11, mentioning the short film Plot Device offhandedly at the end, when really what I should have done is save myself all the typing and just post the video:

Plot Device is getting a huge reaction (120,000 views on Vimeo in four days!), and deservedly so. The filmmaking is terrific, the acting is great, and it’s funny as hell. It celebrates DV Rebel filmmaking in every way. My hat is off to Producer Aharon Rabinowitz and Director Seth Worley for their accomplishment. Seriously guys. I’m inspired.

I think Plot Device is the best software ad I've ever seen. I could watch ads like this all day.

Was that an Editing flaw at 7:06? He has already crossed the black road path and in the next shot he is some 2 yards back again?

I really enjoyed the "making of" video, possibly more than the short itself!
