One of this year’s goals was to play around with more audio and video projects — the kind of loose commitment you make when something seems fun and probably useful from a career perspective (stop learning, start dying).
So it’s the end of April and all I’ve done is write a handful of satirical commercial scripts which were never meant to see the light of day (OK, maybe just this inside joke).
Then I see something like this — a hilarious modern-day take on what I’ll call the Wile E. Coyote fable.
Witty and crafty, it’s so engaging I found myself wishing I’d written it before I was even halfway through (an autonomous robot pigeon?!).
A pizza delivery franchise should have produced a “branded” version of this short in lieu of another round of coupons.
Somebody would have won a bunch of awards.
Like the hugely successful Clive Owen “The Hire” shorts for BMW or the just released 13-minute long Jaguar F-Type introduction starring Damien Lewis (see below), it’s clear entertainment is not a bad way to sell.
Keep writing (maybe even a little of the stuff you want to write), Tom Chandler.
