A subtly funny jab at modern video-making, as well as a playful acknowledgment of the way millennial humans connect. Told through respective interviews, two YouTube video makers meet up & talk shop.
The man approaches the woman as a fan of her ASRM videos, soothing clips of whispering to aid in relaxation or sleepiness. In contrast, the man describes his found footage “YouTube poop” shorts as a “destruction of what videos should be,” and considers them a response to the police state. It’s a funny line, leading into some funny, randomly edited footage of Game Boys, and 80’s TSA training footage.
Both subjects are compelling and sincere presences, though they have a difference of opinion about their first “date” when he takes her to see The Room. Director Christopher Harrell knows what makes something interesting and doesn’t overstep. Good stuff. Starring Emily Fairbook Shuel and Clinton Ring. (6 minutes)
