For nearly a year I’ve been posting about the revolution DSLR cameras have been causing and posting ‘beauty’ vids from the cam’s in action. However, my posts have been lopsided towards the Canon line of rigs. In an attempt to be balanced, here’s a short vid by Carolyn Pitcavage called Uncle Jack. Normally, quirky flicks give me the hives, but this one was worth the initial itching. It was shot with the Pentax K7. Enjoy.
hey, pooh bear, what are you doing up?
this clown was actually funny!
“This clown was actually funny!”
“Oh my God! I’m shot!”
That’s a line you don’t hear from a clown everyday. The ending made the flick for me. “Yay! Magic Pills!”
“Not the dry stuff, not the dry stuff”
I think that’s the first time in my life a clown has made me laugh.
What a terrific short, and beautifully shot too
I avoid ‘comedy’ scripts like the plague as it is much harder to be funny than anyone would believe. However, dark humor like this is much easier because the situations are so awful you can’t help but laugh at it.
