5 Second Film: Caesar is Rude (5 Seconds of Fame **)

Yet another video that shows how Caesar is a jerk sometimes. You try to say something to him and he walks off! How rude!

Dialogue:
Caesar: “What’s up Amber! I gotta ask you something!”
Me: “Hi puppy!”
Caesar:”…oh wait…I forgot. Nevermind.”

This video pretty much sums up my dog’s personality in 5 seconds. This was created for the “5 Seconds of Fame” video assignment where you had to make some aspect of your life funny, but only in 5 seconds.  This footage actually came from a larger home video that I’d taken with my family during New Years. As I was walking around my house with the camera, Caesar came up to me, acting like he wanted something or had something to say to me. Instead when I tried to greet him, he suddenly forgot what he came to me for and left. What’s funny is he did the exact same thing in his puppy video where he was playing with a squeaky toy and he suddenly lost interest in it and left it. I guess he’s got the attention span of an armpit…

I tried to match the 5 Second Film style as much as possible by having the same opening/closing font and durations. I used Final Cut Pro to make this rather than iMovie because I needed the exact font layout (Lucida Grande, Centered) if I wanted to stay true to the style. Sadly when I recorded this I was using an IPod Touch, and it was turned sideways. That’s why the irremovable black bars of death are on the sides.

I liked this assignment because showed that one doesn’t need a 20min long sitcom to be funny, and that simplicity is all one really needs. 5 seconds could be worth 1000 words!
