Storyline

Apathy, technology, paranoia, disease and medication. Meet Arin. Arin is a shy videographer who finds it too much to handle to go out and meet girls, so he sets up an account on meester.net. The flood of responses never comes, save for one email from Susan, a struggling artist who finds her job as a waitress stifling her creativity. Susan is also on the shy side and is seeking an alternative to the classic dating situation. When Arin and Susan finally meet, that alternative dating situation comes to life as the two refuse to communicate verbally with each other, wanting to avoid bullshit small talk. Instead, when they do need to communicate to each other, they pass a pen and pad back and forth. Written by Eric Campos - Film Threat

Creative Mediums are an A+!!!
1 September 2007 | by (American Samoa) – See all my reviews

I love this movie. Plain and simple. It's the story of two people and their lives and their story of finding one another. The trials and tribulations of their "Anti-dating" are pure enjoyment, as well as certain instances of hypochondria and the need to "create from your core". Two people set out to connect with each other but only through artistic mediums. This means strictly writing notes back and forth and communicating via their video cameras. And the great thing about this movie is that it's all real. The two directors are the main characters in the story, as well as the actors (who are, in affect, playing themselves). This entire film reads to me like an enormous art project, which I will rightfully grant a deserved A+!
