Storyline

"You Know My Name" (1993) is a comedic musical short inspired by an obscure Beatles novelty tune. While visiting a mysteriously surrealistic dating agency, a lonely woman (Betty Taylor) checks out the video tapes of one male prospect (Angel Connell) who seems to have multiple personalities. With remote in hand, the woman speeds past those parts of her character she finds unattractive and zeroes in on the aspect of his personality she finds most attractive. Her decision to commit to this appealing part of his persona results in a dramatic change in her life - or does it? Written by Angel Connell

Splendid example of using music to emphasize a story
31 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Music videos have become big time productions over the last twenty years. However, that evolution took time. There were many different pathways explored before the current crop of glossy "eye and ear candy" became so readily available. As an early initiative, Angel Connell took a relatively obscure Beatles track and used it to develop a short story. It turns out to be an interesting tale.

Expanding upon a simple phrase, the story takes the viewer along a pathway from one window to another as the viewer is presented charades performed by the same actor (Angel) in different guises. The over-all theme is predictable, but the vignettes are intriguing. Angel portrays the different characters with believable panache.

While the production quality is above average for an amateur effort, it does reflect the time period when it was done, which should not detract from the viewer's appreciation of the theme.
