Cool Guy Funny Film Noir Short Film, inspired by Nick Bounty and Dirk Gently

Hey all, I thought you guys might enjoy this short film noir comedy I made in the style of things such as Nick Bounty, and Dirk Gently.

MARK DARIN(Director of Tales of Monkey Island Episode 2) SAID: "Fantastic job! I was cracking up the whole time."



Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DS5B86R0x4

Part 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4N5ggo-2gk0

It all started with a nun, a cat, and no girl scout cookies. Hilarity ensues in this comedy film noir, written by me. Johnny B Goode is also played by me. All music is royalty free and can be found here http://incompetech.com/m/c/royalty-free/... . All other actors are credited.


Thanks for taking your time to watch and I hope you enjoy.

I liked it! I kind of got lost halfway through though, so maybe it'd be good if you added subtitles.

You have lots of talent and potential. Keep practising your writing, acting and directing. Then tell us when you've made your first feature film - I'm looking forward to it.

Nice, I laughed at the end.
But sometimes it was hard hearing what some were saying.

like was said on the youtube page though, the meow was too loud and annoying.

I liked the voice over. It really sounded like that 40's film noir text.
I'd watch the editing and lighting in a next attempt, but all and all a pretty nice flick.

Has anyone ever seen my film noir attempt? It's not half as long, but I thought it worked pretty good. The music is from Grim Fandango. (Yeah, so sue me.)

THanks guys, I watched yours Lagomorph, pretty good. I liked some of the shots you did, very fluid stuff.

Well you had the nerve to make a real story out of it. I've made a script for part 2, but I haven't had the time (or guts) to start the production.
Your movie is much funnier too. I loved the bouncing!
