Well, I think you won't have a hard time finding many backers of your cause! Bring on the torches and pitchforks!

The lighting was quite nice for something that you tossed together as a spoof...

Lighting was the backyard spot at my back door-- You might recognize the plant from UWOL night theme film....

To All UWOLer's. I made this film as exactly what Meryem said in her post, a spoof. Meryem's challenge this time was a bit more than I could take on with other commitments I had, and I accepted that situation as the first time I would not be able to present something for the UWOL Challenge. I heard an awful lot of whining going on, though, so I thought I would just make this little spoof.

I hope it was all taken in fun, and I had no intention of rallying torch and pitch fork carriers by this film.

Meryem-- your hard work and dedication to this genre is greatly appreciated by me for one...

(By the way, I TIVO recorded and watched your Triathalon film project last week. Nice job....)

And FUN it was, Chris! You had an unique way of diving into the tank.
You definitely followed rule #11!
(just don't repeat a shark tank video too often, we enjoy watching your real uwol videos too, haha)

Okay Chris...that was really funny. I like the secretive atmosphere...the hidden in the shadows look...the cloak and dagger feel. Awesome!

So, I have one question...at the end when you look back into the camera just before taking the plunge, it appears that you are mouthing something to the camera...something subliminal perhaps...what is it? Come on...you can tell us.

Thanks for the lighthearted piece, very fun. Terrific lighting by the way!

Jeff

Ok Chris - that's fun fun stuff! Maybe you've given Meryem a hint at a theme for the future: "the UWOL spoof"

Thanks for the laugh!
