"Hey girl, does your mom sell insurance? 'Cos I wanna have sex with you" (*kiss*)

In addition to humorously and gently mocking multi-instrumental indie rock spectacles ("Well, the band that's playing tonight has three triangle players"), this short film will also help you bring your A-Game to whatever activities this weekend has in store for you.

Jake Troth (a musician we love 'round these parts) helped produce and stars in this 3-minute film for the Apple Insomnia Film Festival. It's an innovative student competition where teams are given a list of elements to include in their film (props, dialogue, setting, etc) and they have just 24 hours to write, cast, shoot, edit, score, and upload their creation. Watch as Jake tries to muster up the stuff to pick up on a rocker chick out on the Georgia pier, then is magically transported to a desert, where he gets help from a very special mystical friend . . . his A-Game.


That made me laugh. I don't recommend using those pick-up lines -- although she might feel so bad for you, you'd win sympathy points.

Today is the last day to vote for this short film in the competition.
DO it.

Priceless! There's nothing funnier than a good ole "toss a dude in a wheelchair over a railing and into the water" skit.

I play the kazoo so I'm thinking about starting a rock band...

yo heather!
this film was really fun to make, except for me almost going nose deep in quicksand where we filmed the desert scene. thats why i did th fall because if my pants would have magically gotten dirty it wouldn't have flowed.

"Are you a library book - 'cuz you got fine written all over you!"

That's a great line!!
Too bad irony has died in Miami.

No, my mom's dead.

Just kidding. She did sell insurance but now she's retired. Of course it was ufo abduction insurance so I'm not entirely sure whether that's the kind you're looking for.

uh, why do you ask?
