perfect example of how to shoot on DV
22 May 2006 | by (kentucky) – See all my reviews

This is above all a very funny movie, well written and excellently shot with outstanding audio. The artists did a great job of keeping it simple while mixing in great locations and a nice mix of hand-held scenes that are a cut above what you'd expect from a smaller production. Focus on commercial quality was obvious, and the acting was top notch. Editing is seamless and transparent, just like it should be. This is a great movie to watch on a Saturday afternoon with some good friends and a cold beer. There aren't a lot of small production movies I'd buy, much less watch, but I wanted to buy this one the same weekend I saw it. Although it may sound like they paid me to say this, they didn't--I don't even know the crew outside of a short chat after the film festival. This is as critical an addition to your independent film library as it's contemporary digital "Tadpole" (minus Sigourney Weaver of course). Enjoy.
