I let a USC student post this on youtube after months of telling her she couldn't because I thought a filmaker wanted to use this script for competition. I haven't heard from him in months. i know he's working on other projects.
Regardless, This was supposed to take place in an elegant restaurant. Budget turned it into a picnic, but they improvised well on the script. I think the acting is top notch.
They did a good job, and the acting was leagues above what a normal student film would have. I don't think it was hurt too much by not being set in a fancy restaurant, but the conversation about paying did come off as kind of awkward. It's really hard to nail down a location like that (I know from experience).
I think I liked this one better than the last version. (Call me shallow, but the girl in the original video just didn't seem, well, appealing. And that's coming from me. Another female.)
In this one, looks like the attractiveness imbalance flip-flopped. The male lead in the picnic version creeps me out - more than just a little bit. And she's way out of his league. Frankly, he should be *thanking* her for agreeing to be linked to him on Facebook....
And yes, the lines about paying for the picnic were a little weird. But they worked around it relatively well, not much harm done.
That aside, fun production! Congrats on getting this shot...multiple times..!
What the heck's facebook? Is it a novel or something?
Congrats, James, on gettin' this one filmed.

The guy was hard to look at though. Kind of scary .... the girl in the original video just didn't seem, well, appealing. .... The male lead in the picnic version creeps me out - more than just a little bit. And she's way out of his league.
I'm surprised at you two. I expected a little more class and taste from two well-respected women on the boards here. I figured if anybody wouldn't judge a book by its face it would be you, Pia, and you, Janet. I really don't know what to think about this.
Oh, and BTW, James, you really should've wrote a titty scene for the girl in this version. (It was still kind of hot when she dropped the T-bomb, though.)
