A Nike commercial where Robert Rodriguez pitches an idea for an action movie to NBA star Kobe Bryant about Bryant's alter ego The Black Mamba, which is Bryant's actual nickname. A crime lord knows only as Boss is after Mamba's Nike shoes.
Good extra, helps explain how Rodriguez can work so quickly and cheaply
Showing up the efficiency of a professional studio is not something done every day, but Robert Rodriguez pulls it off *and* makes it look effortless to do so in this short. Clearly(as is his usual and preferred method of working) cutting the whole thing in his mind as he goes along(look and listen when he first enters the house and see if you agree with me), he shows us his own home studio, which is his garage, and which holds all of his sound mixing setups, an area reserved for special effects work and an editing computer. He takes us through the sound programs and equipment in a manner that is very informational yet not boring for a second... he even goes on to show in great detail how he did the music. This is interesting throughout, and there is not a dull moment to be found. Rodriguez' drive and energy keeps any project that he has done all the work on himself(look at The Faculty for an example of something... less than all the way Rodriguez) fast-paced and interesting to watch, including these extras. I recommend this to anyone interested in finding out how Robert's post-production work is done, and any hopefuls(with the money to afford such) who wish to own their own production facilities, just like he. 7/10
