    Ez lads!

    I don't know if any of you know this but by night I'm a masked vigilante. A creature of the night. A dark passenger.

    I make films.

    Please can you lot check out my latest comedy short that I co-directed and produced with two good friends of mine. Not sure if the humour is to your taste but hopefully you'll enjoy some of the gags!

    Let me know what you think:



    Cheers guyssss!

    Thanks man :)

    Was it funny? I've watched it so many times I'm immune to the comedy I think...?

    Personally I found it funny but the writing still needs a bit of work...but anyway it takes yeeeears to become a good writer. It's a bit too reliant on the actors (who do brilliantly) to make it funny. IMO.

    Does look good though. How long did that take to make from start to finish?

    Well they wrote it. It was all improvised to be honest. Only the main story line was actually 'written' I guess... Well it took about 8 hour to shoot and I've been cutting it for about 8 hours in total if I totted it all up I think.

    Ahaahahaha! Mate.. some of the out takes from the whole thing are fucking priceless!

    Thanks guys!

    I enjoyed that. Good work! Loved the characters.

    If I was to think of some criticism, i'd say perhaps it felt a bit long for a short film, and could do with being snappier. But then again, i'd struggle to say which parts to cut out.

    What camera did you use? Canon 5d?

    Yeah. I got a Mark 3 a month n a bit ago. I'm in love with it. Beautiful camera.

    Yeah, it's a difficult decision to cut stuff. Honestly we have HOURS of stuff that we haven't used. A lot of stuff that is funnier than what we've used too that just wasn't quite story relevant. It's really difficult to judge with something like this. You don't know what the reaction will be till it's out... nah mean?

    Thanks guys!

    Kinda... I mean it'd be a little bit drawn out but the stuff we had to cut is funny. We literally have about an hour of just them and their friend's in the pub for ages.

    Haha. Yeah, I fucking love that line!

    Lol. It's set in the 80's so the typography is meant to mimick the crap filmography/designs from that era and is supposed to be a bit shit. I was going to dull the image down and make it look like it was off a shitty VHS but that was gonna take me a while and we were itching to just get it out so we sacked it off...
