I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

How's Our Service?

Okay, so this short is apparently a few years old (2005 according to IMDB), but I just came across it now, and I think it is hilarious. 5 minutes long, a good concept, real act structure, good genre blending, and solid comedy. This is how you write a short, ladies and gentlemen! Well done, Jeremy Saville!

The genre blending was exceptional. The way the Sprint characters came in and made it a much darker comedy.

That was great! I had a similar thing happen to me a couple of years back, but they maxed out the offers at $100. lol
