    Hey Michael,

    Thanks for your comments I always appreciate constructive criticism especially from a cinematographer like yourself. I agree regarding length these days around 5 minutes is the best for a Web Series though I am glad we managed to hold you for the extra time.

    Thanks again for all your points, everything helps us as creative grow and I am glad you enjoyed the piece as a whole.

    Be sure to keep an eye out for the rest of the series.

    Thanks for watching.

    Great acting and good script with some clever content. I think it's a bit long for audiences these days just to have one scene for 7 mins but it just about held me.

    Very minor point - The second camera angle confused me slightly. The problem is that the Gopro from the front (if that's what it was shot on) looked quite good, so the different, off angle shots with different lighting weren't needed. I think it either needed a reverse or a very different angle, maybe with some movement but even that wasn't really necessary.

    Hey Matt,

    Thanks for your comments I appreciate the constructive criticism.

    Completely agree that as a stand alone film it is not the right format and we always had the intention that this was an intro as you mentioned.

    We are working on different versions of the cover/titles as the series develops that ties in more with the show.

    Thanks watching and again for your comments and I hope you will watch the rest of the series via the Posh Dinosaur Productions YouTube channel.

    Excellent performance - nicely underplayed and brilliant timing. As the opener to a web series this is great. As a stand alone film it suffers a bit in terms of concept (online dating video - that's been done a zillion times. And it features one of my pet peeves in scripting which is the "one more go" (or in this case - "third time's a charm" idea - which is then followed by what would definitely be the first time through... (sorry, that's just something which bugs me. It's usually in police dramas in an interview room where a witness is asked to go through the evidence "one more time")... But... since it is Episode One.... look forward to seeing more. PS for what it's worth I'd also lose the illustration/cover image. I don't think it sets the right tone for what is a much more adult themed comedy.

    Although I thought sometimes the acting felt forced, I thought this was a really interesting start to a story with loads of potential, and I want to know what happens next!
    Also the use different narratives; boss and best friend, porn, recurring in the story are great and hilarious AND attracted funny looks from my colleagues.
