VIDEO: Merely Conventional Signs

Here is a short film I wrote/directed a little over a year ago about the near-death and eventual resurgence of punctuation in the 21st century. The film stars a great many Kent celebrities, including Ryan Downey, Elaine Hullihen, Erin Roof, and Douglas Hite. The film was produced by Laura Hannah and myself, and shot and edited by Leslie Cusano. The concept derived from a section of Lynn Truss's book on punctuation, Eats, Shoots, and Leaves. The film was received well by the Fundamental English Grammar class for which it was produced, but was a disappointing snub by the Kent Film Festival in early 2007.

The quality of this version is very poor and for that I apologize. Look for a high res. version in the relative future.

Let's also remember that it was a Let's Work With Orphans "Approved" Film. This might not mean much to people at the KFF, but it means a lot to little Tim and Sarah, and all the other Orphans out there.
