Director's Comments

Film#3 from 'Funny Boys Films'
This was an entry for the Nathan 'Lord Of The LEGO' Wells' Dictionary Series.

The idea is to use an unusual word, film a short animation depicting the meaning of the word, followed by a dictionary definition of it.

Staff Review

Randy Yard:
One of the better Dictionary Series entries, "Maladroit" deserves a lot of credit for actually following all the requirements set for the series (widescreen, white expanse, no dialogue, uncommon word, etc.). Aside from that, the execution isn't spectacular, but plenty good enough for such a simple short. Certainly worth a view, especially if you've got a vocabulary test coming up any time soon.
