The Gutter Twins - Idle Hands (Dirs. Warren Julius)
Not a split-screen
Neato. I feel like it could use some titles, like "Scenes from the Raleigh Pyrotechnic Academy." And maybe give names to each of the devices they construct.
Sooo bad... Fell grossly short of my expectations!!! Wanna see a good promo? Try Stress from justice... This is a small idea with a big budget with a first grade build up to a climax that never delivers. Give me back my 5 minutes... Aim for originality next time!
tho vacuous, oddly compelling.
Was involved with the project....
Big budget??? Try less than $20,000! The budget from the label was less than $10,000... so at the very least - the video appears far more expensive than than it actually was.
if the budget from the label was less than $10000, where did the rest of the money come from???
If not the label then the production company might be a safe bet...
"Stress" is indeed very good - and besides the excellent / über dynamic filmmaking and far more than $10 - $20 grand budget - a large part of its success is the socio / economic / political unrest / backstory of the Parisian suburbs and how that infuses everything we see in that video --- "Idol Hands" on the other hand has none of that as its backbone - it's just suburban USA teens getting their rocks off - which in and of itself is perhaps rather vacuous, but nonetheless enjoyable if you like seeing things being blown to bits.
