Movie Cram II in The NY Times
The NY Times covered Movie Cram II, an event I produced with my sketch group Whale Thief, wherein we produce a feature-length comedy film, from script to screen, in 24 hours. A writing team of 15, 20 production squads and over 100 actors contributed to 2014's "Consti2tion", a film about the re-writing of the US Constitution after it is discovered to have expired.
"It was warmly — nay, raucously — received, with whooping and hollering throughout"
"The directors had till 11 p.m., when they were to show up at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater with edited scenes in hand, ready to be arranged in a video playlist."
-Bill Grimes, NY Times
That's me in the suit!
The Huffington Post featured an article about viral video Shit New Yorkers Say (starring Eliot and Ilana Glazer, written by Eliot, produced by Seth Keim, directed and edited by me) complimenting the video as a diamond in the rough amongst the Shit ___ Say meme. It has over 4 million views on YouTube.
"Bro and Sis team Eliot and Ilana Glazer cobbled this collection of New Yorkisms that are scathingly dead-on." -HuffPo
The Huffington Post covers a video I edited for Funny Or Die, stating "Funny or Die pairs Durst's fictional revelations -- "I'm a little teapot"; "I was the Blair Witch"; "I'm gonna steal this nice lavalier microphone" -- with his propensity to blink for a ridiculous parody."
The Wrap mentioned it, like it was news that a comedy website made a comedy video.
The Hollywood Reporter specified that we "lampooned" the series. As we do.
Salon editorialized (as they do), calling the video "hilarious."
And, Media-ite labeled the video a "spoof," which it is. Well done, Media-ite.
