DVC20 - "Excuses" by Jeremy Doyle

I think it pretty much speaks for itself.

I signed up for the competition with the intent of getting off the wall of shame. As a procrastinator, and just being extremely busy this time of year I didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to this project. But with an instructional video theme, I had plenty of ideas that kept popping into my head.

Ultimately it came down to, what can I do by myself and in one evening? I started at 9 p.m. on Sunday night and 3 hours later I had this. With the exemption of some compressing issues when it was done, everything else went smoothly.

Shot with an Canon HV20, edited with FCP, graphics in photoshop and AE, and music from the digital juice backtraxx libraries 1 & 2.

Congratulations on leaving the wall in such fine style Jeremy! I really enjoyed this and it was a nice reversal of the theme.

I just knew there had to be a stay off the wall tutorial, and you made an entertaining one.
Loved that the wife didn't want to be seen on camera. The filmmaker has a lonely life.
Some pretty good excuses. I've used a couple of those. Still would have liked to see the visual of a body hanging on the wall, blood, etc. So we know the importance of staying off it.

The wall of shame sounds awful. Maybe I can threaten my recalcitrant students with it... ;-) Great fun, Jeremy.

Actually was quite nice to see the real Jeremy Doyle. I've always thought one day we would have one of those self portrait themes in the Challenge. You are way ahead fo the game, Jeremy !! Nice crying jag...even if a bit forced :)

Great one, Jeremy! I watched it with my gf several times with laughter, and I can relate to the wall of shame theme. :) I'll remember this if I'm in the pinch some other DVC. :)

What can I say, I learned that bit from watching my 4 year old daughter. She pulls that move on me several times a week (although somehow she always manages to get tears). And when its coming, it is almost as predictable as my countdown cue.

Thanks for the kind words everyone.

Dick - I never thought about going with a bloody body hanging on the wall. That would have been brilliant!

George - Yes, the wall of shame is an awful place and I have been on it far too many times.

Speaking as someone who's currently in the Shark Tank I'm pretty sure The Wall Of Shame is a lot less hazardous to ones immediate health and wellbeing ;) I just pity the people on The Wall Of Sharks, they've got another six months to go before they get a chance at a reprieve.

Very funny. An instant classic. I actually have a variation of this mapped out to use at some point for these challenges. I like the graphics also. Great work.

Re: DVC20 - "Excuses" by Jeremy Doyle

It takes a real man to bare his soul on video like that, Jeremy. Maybe we should start a group therapy session for Wall of Shamers. ;)

I laughed and laughed at this piece. It was really hard to decide which part was funniest (not that I needed to) but I have to say your comment about not wanting to start a controversy over how to tie shoes really cracked me up. And the unspoken "why we should brush our tongues" bit had me giggling as well.

Good job, especially with so little time left on the clock for submitting!
