| An awesome short film.
I had the pleasure of viewing this film, along with Greg's other work, today at the Myhalen Film Festival in Hackettstown, New Jersey. This, along with "Light in the Fridge" and "Gameday" had me laughing out loud. The story of Lou -- the Hook-Armed Man -- and his quest to break free of his tedious maim-kill-maim-kill job begins funny then gets surprisingly gory. But the added animation is great, and detracts from what could've been disturbing, making the whole film seem more light-hearted. I asked a lot of questions of the director after the film was shown; he was a really nice guy. If you see the film in your area, GO WATCH IT. And also look for "The Quarry".
