I still say it was a dangerous and unpredictable downdraft that caused you to slide down the pole – the kind that causes a serious threat to planes taking off and landing. You did a public service by demonstarting how dangerous down drafts are. Personally I would vote for you to win! (So selfless and concerned about public safety.)
Thanks, Paul. I think Angelina had something to do with why I didn’t get the Humanitarian Oscar.
You’re a year early Ned. That doesn’t qualify until next year’s vote.
Thank GOD! I still have a chance next year! I’ll start working on a sound track. Maybe by the guys who wrote the “Hot Pockets” jingle.
Definitely! Reach for the top, reach for the stars Ned!!
I see another book in your future, mate, all about Oscar
Honestly, the pole wasn’t very good in its supporting role.
I blame it on gravity.
The other thing about the movie ‘Gravity’ was that gravity seemed to be notable absent throughout most of it…your movie definitely has more gravity than ‘Gravity’. And I see you do your own stunts as well!
Exactly! But as Robyn pointed out, it technically is a 2014 movie so, unless Gravity has a sequel out by then,I might still have a chance!
Also, Best Soundtrack in a Live-Action Short should go to your lovely wife for the laughter.
I’m sorry I missed this last night. Too funny!
Haha! She was more than happy to contribute 😉
I would have voted for you, Ned.
You know, if I wasn’t a nobody.
If I could have voted for myself, then maybe we would have equaled a “somebody.” Because, if 9th-grade math serves me, to nothings equal a something — right?
Alicia sounds so much younger than you.
She is… by a whole year. In Ned years, that’s like 10.
I thought maybe you were going to take her to her prom.
I think you should win an Oscar for best outtakes on this short film!
Hahaha! My wife would have to accept that award as Producer 😉
