I didn't notice the family photos in the background, that's a nice touch now that you mention it.

Great film (love the line about subcontracting to another star), but I think it was a little slow to be a believable news piece; when the reporter swings around on the picnic table, for example, that felt like it should've been tighter to me.

Other than that, and maybe a different angle of the NASA sign--that light pole is right in front of the sign, though I understand we all have limitations when it comes to camera position--I loved this. The reenactment was it for me, I was cracking up, really a hilarious idea!

Nuts, that means I missed my mark a bit. We had a long discussion about whether it should be a news piece or a documentary and decided on the doc, which is why it was paced a little slower. (The picnic table move was meant to be an homage to Richard Attenboro on a rock in Egypt). But I guess thinking about it the only thing we did different script wise was leave out "I'm Janet reporting live on the scene".

Thanks for the feedback.

Kris, I was a little nervous about commenting on your piece prior to mine coming out, you can see why now.

It is amazing how a simple theme that has such a broad definition can be interpreted so simarly by different people. What really threw me was we both had NASA scientists. At least we used different scientists.

Having said that, I enjoyed the parody. Your reporter did a great job. I would agree that the lighting on the reporter could have used some help. I HATE shooting in the sun. The best outdoor shoots I have had were done when it was heavily overcast. Good work!

NASA seems appropriate for theme, and having Goddard Space Flight Center close by I couldn't resist. Though there is a security station right next to that sign so I was afraid to get any closer. It probably would have been fine, but I was too shy to ask (which is why I don't do real news). Of course you only think they're different scientists, I manipulated the voice as well as the face. ;-)

You, me, Sean, all a little bit similar and yet very different. Kinda fun how that turns out.
