Go, Joe...
I attended USC film school and had CNTV 241 (the entry-level film production class) with Joe Nussbaum, the director and co-writer of this short film. I used to borrow his tripods and lights all the time...

Even though we were shooting on Super 8 at the time (now they shoot iMovies in CNTV 241), Joe was at the head of our class at crafting funny, memorable narratives in little short films. When George Lucas in Love became a surprise hit a few years ago, I wasn't surprised at all. For me, it was a continuation of the incredible filmmaking talent Nussbaum displayed at USC a few years back.

I remember reading Nussbaum got a feature film deal shortly after this short was made, but it seems that never came to pass. Que sera sera, but still keep your eyes out for him, as his talent is too strong to lay dormant forever. Even if you never get the chance to see his Super 8 comedy masterpiece The Whiz, like I did a couple of times back in 1994, you can watch and enjoy this very sharp and funny short.
