Director's Comments

A video my girlfriend an I made for her film class.  Entirely made in 3 days, the film was a little rushed and so there may be a few minor technical problems.  She is not a voice actor but acted in it simply because it was for her assignment, and coupled with microphone problems, some parts may not be perfectly audible.  But I think it turned out fairly well regardless.

Staff Review

Zach Macias:
A mildly entertaining film that demonstrates how to avoid the common mistakes of an evil overlord. The technical qualities are nothing outstanding, given that this was made in 3 days for a school assignment. It suffers primarily from poor framing choices and the occasional uninspired bit of voiceover narration. But there are enough bits of humor to make up for its failings and make this an overall enjoyable brickfilm. Future overlords, take note.
