Woah woah woah, backwards R makes the "YA" sound, and you have an F sound where an O should be. You don't speak Russian at all, do you?!

MeAgain, we don't speak Russian, and we only wanted to play with the letters, not to be accurate.

wow, this series is excellent! I just watched the first last night, i am going to show them to my gf and watch the rest.

What did you guys shoot this on?

What did you record sound to?

The writing is really excellent, very clever and witty.

How long is it taking you to produce each episode?

Thanks jonE5!

We shot it on two Panasonic GH1 with Nikon Lenses.
We record sound to a Rode NTG2 mic + Zoom H4
Production time is 2/3 weeks per episode.
Shooting time is 3 days.

We're starting now to send the series to blogs/sites so that everyone can watch it :)

Best regards!

I watched the rest of these with my gf and we both really love the series, cant wait for more episodes.

Just wanted to let you know I have featured your series on my blog (Diary of a No Name Film Maker) here


I have a segment called Short film of the week (usually reserved for short films), but your series was so good IMO i had to feature it.

Just click my link for the little write up and feature i did.

Cant wait for more from you guys.

I loved this! I'll be in Barcelona the first two weeks of August - let me know if you need someone to carry your sandbags!

06-15-2010, 09:46 AM
yesss, finally a new episode. I thought they looked a bit sharper, but felt that the audio was slightly off on this one.

Cant say this was my fav episode, but ill take what i can get when it comes to perestroika, keep it comming!

06-15-2010, 03:22 PM
Just watched all 5 episodes.

Not much else to say other than I loved it! Can't wait to watch more! It's awesome to see stuff that has such talent on both sides of the camera. Hope this brings you guys all great success! Thanks for the entertainment.

Thanks a lot!
I wish we'll be shooting in August, it would mean someone is paying the series :)

jonE5, you're right: we shot this episode with Canon 1D and it's sharper. And I had to edit the sound -with premiere- and it turned out to be a bad idea -also our only choice-

Next Monday, season finale, a 12 minutes episode, I'll keeo you informed (btw, how on earth can I upload a more-than-10-minutes video to youtube?

Best regards
