Proof of Our Claims!

Only one copy of has been released to a member of the public, and I can admit now that I was worried. I've been boasting for the five years I labored away at the footage that this film would put the audience to sleep.

But would it? Sometimes directors go a bit delirious sitting alone at a computer, and the only way to test my theory was to offer a DVD, randomly, to the first person I'd never met before who asked.

Or the first person I'd never met who I could convince to take it. Who turned out to be our official First Fan, Joshua Kight. When Joshua contacted me after reading about, I sent him that fateful DVD and sat tensely waiting...for the results that would determine...whether what I had devoted my life to was a sleeper...or just another action film.

The results are in! The UNDOCTORED (except for a little cropping on my part) photo above shows our entire First Audience fast asleep! (L to R:) Toni! Erik! First Fan Joshua! Laura! And only minutes into the movie!

Don't tell me you can fake a picture like this one. Admittedly, Joshua, in retrospect, recalls setting the self-timer on the camera before collapsing back into a deep slumber. But that is easily explained in Wikipedia, which states that during REM sleep, activity in the brain's neurons resembles that during waking hours. Of course. Sleepwalking, sleepeating, sleeppicture-taking are common, even without Ambien. Can Joshua describe the details of the movie he claims to have seen? All he remembers for certain is that his companions were definitely asleep.

The experiment was a success. Unlike those filmmakers who delude themselves into thinking their movies are exciting, I have come up with a movie that delivers the goods.

I wish he had posted video... it's a little hard to tell if they're all really asleep without a sign of Rapid Eye Movement. How do you know they're not just resting their eyes? Or blinking a the flash? This is not empirical evidence; it's merely anecdotal.

Good observation, daniel, but see the next post for the technical explanation.
