Here is some inspiration for our Foodie Kingdom assignment – restaurant line group I’m looking at you.
This piece is a great example of how humor can completely wipe out the pushy aspect of an opinion piece. I love the hand written signs and notes, the sounds effects (i.e. Buzzer) and the upbeat music. Also, the stop motion and utilization of soda containers and sugar is fantastic.
I was intrigued by this piece because while I completely enjoy the approach and humor, I’m simultaneously aware that I don’t think I would really like to hang out with this guy. I imagine I would find him rather annoying in person but in film form, he’s great. This realization was freeing, as I feel a bit overly concerned with being likable in the film process. Yes, being respectful is important but sometime it’s asking the seemingly stupid and repetitive question that results in the key quote. Thus, here’s to being a bit ridiculous in the name of capturing great stories!
