I actually thought the videos were pretty good. Guerrilla video producers never pay enough attention to audio, and there could have been a steadier hand on the camera, and — as long as I’m nitpicking — Joe’s questions ran a little long.
And as long as we’re taking a minute here, the fonts didn’t seem to pop on the background. Brighten the drop shadow and do a little more with the lower third. I think the dissolves on the fonts are 30 frames and the whole thing would move faster if they were 15.
Plus, I think he’d draw more of a female audience if it had a romantic sub-plot, so maybe he should be making eyes at one of the guests — that dark-haired girl, Florencia. There’s chemistry there; work with it.
One other thing — and I don’t mean to be mean about this, but business is business. I’d recast Judd Finkelstein. I didn’t find him convincing at all. Maybe as, like, a bicycle messenger, but a winemaker?
Can we get call in to that Jersey Shore kid? The one with the funny name? The Predicament, or whatever? He’s hot right now, and if we get him a decent haircut he’d be a hell of a winemaker. The ladies’ll go nuts over him, out there in the vineyard, his shirt off.
Listen, babe, I’d love to chat but I’ve got a lunch at Orso. I’ll have my assistant work up some notes while I’m eating, send ‘em over to you. But trust me: it’s going to be fabulous.
Also needed more explosions. Can never have enough of those.
Also, I’m not sure those people are millenials – they’re all around my age which puts then into the “Uhhmmm, I *think* we’re part of the ‘Gen X’ generation, right?” Generation. Also known as the “please, acknowledge me, we’re really still here even though we amount to less than half of the Boomers and Millenials!” Generation…
Explosions? Romantic sub-plots? Come on, guys. I was just thinking some good old fashioned excitment might spice things up a bit. Maybe a round of strip poker instead of the usual quesitons? And a fist fight. No, wait. A pillow fight. Yeah, yeah…a pillow – Florencia and Elizabeth. I’m sure they’d be game. Florencia’s cool as hell, but my money’s on Elizabeth.
