An entire short film entitled "Painting With Pesion" was shot for the sequence when "Alien" watches the black & white painting show on TV. Created and directed by Conrad Vernon, this is the excerpt we see on screen. However, to keep the editing of the film fast, what ends up on screen is only Vernon's voice (as Pesion) and a brief simple shot of one of his epic paintings: a cow. See more »
My roommate's an assistant on "Deuce", the new Rob Schneider vehicle over at Touchstone. He was telling me that the film's director is just a few years older than we are. So when he brought home the guy's short film, "Herd", I had high expectations.
I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. This film is a work of genius. Instead of being restrained by budget limitations, Mitchell utilizes them for humorous effect. The result is hilarious. The bookmark sequences are beautifully crafted as well, leaving the viewer with a calm sense of awe. All in all, a wonderfully spectacular effort.
I now see why he got the job.
