Yeah, I watched a couple of them in Atlanta. I attended a festival there. Now I want more from these guys! They rock! How come people could make a movie that short? No words too. That's incredible. I recommend it to kids and adults. I would watch it again too. No need for translation, neither for sound. I'll keep my eye on them. I read a concept on their official website too. That's even more impressive. It's much stronger then one could imagine. I predict them to grow big soon. They got that all. Short! Bright! Wit! And very funny too. I would buy a DVD for myself, but never saw it selling anywhere online. Anyway, I liked it! Super!
