  1. OMG ridiculously funny ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜‚

  2. As a former film student, I can attest to the complete accuracy of this skit๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  3. Things nowadays have horrid amounts of names in the credits, even people that gave the key grips a coffee once. This skit is pretty realistic.

  4. Venessa was so nice to them… i like when some people have the option to just go there way and not take the burden to be nice , but still they choose to be nice. although the people whom they are nice with dont even realize the same, and they take it as something they deserved ofcourse… which was again so evident in this skit. sorry guys , you had to read this serious comment coming out of the blue …..hehe

  5. This is actually a perfect illustration of how annoying it is when artists start speaking about their โ€œartโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And yes – Vanessa is perfect here.

  6. How did I not notice all those 3โ€™s in the woods until they actually mentioned them?๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  7. ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹์•„ ๋„ˆ๋ฌด ์›ƒ๊ฐธใ…•ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹ใ…‹

  8. The Life Neal Lives
    I just realized that โ€œQuaโ€ sounds like โ€œquoiโ€ โ€” the French word for โ€œwhatโ€. Maybe thatโ€™s the reaction the film wants to invoke from the audience: โ€œQuoi?โ€

  9. This reminds me to a group of people I used to know in the early 2000s. They made one short "art" movie that was invited to two local festival screenings and won't stop talking about it for years. One dude (the director) loved to criticize other movies (REAL movies that was played on theaters and made real money) 24/7, the way this movie's director should do this lighting techniques, the way that movie's cinematographer should do that shot angle, etc etc.
    He never make ANY movie again. He's in early 40s now…and still basically jobless.
    Today, any kid with a decent smartphone could make a better movie than his movie. I don't even remember the title or what the story was about. ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…

  10. I used to own a big nightclub and people thought I was crazy to have an open mic on Tuesdays. But it was a success because every band that showed up would bring their family and friends plus themselves. We had our regular soundman so this was a chance for small bands to play on a big stage so it was very popular. There was no actual audience LOL but we had about 60 people!

  11. This is legitimately how most "short film" BULLSHIT is!!! A bunch of fucknuts all happy about their 2 seconds of skid marks!!
