    Hey I liked this - and I don't think production value is hugely important on this kind of mockumentary, there were no technical issues that distracted me from the humour or the story. In fact, if this had been too slick it wouldn't have worked as well. The actor absolutely makes this and I like the ad-libbed style. The music is great too - just right. You just seem to have really understood the conventions of the genre, which adds up to a cohesive film that works. I'd suggest making more of these, doing some kind of web-series - this is very you-tube-able - yes that's a word. Look it up

    The accent threw me - Was that an attempt at Australian?
    It ranges right thru to British and South African.
    Maybe he's some sort of expat stuck between cultures or something.

    Sorry to be a tad negative but it really put me off - I hate false accents and don't really see what it would have added to the story anyway even if the actor totally nailed it.

    Kevin was born and raised somewhere in Australia... like Perth, or NSW or something, so I think you are mistaken on what an Australian accent sounds like. How would you know anyway? Come on, don't criticize something you obviously know nothing about.

    He actually has had to shun his Aussie accent here in the states because people made fun of him when he said things like, "Crikey" and "Alrighty, Mate" and "I think I spot a Roo over there", which is why you see in the last shot he switches back to his fake American accent.

    Hope this clears things up for ya. No hard feelings, mate.








    Edit: I see that you ARE from Australia...well.... never mind the above.

    (yes we use G'day but hardly ever hear crikey)

    Thanks for answering.
    Sorry to seem so negative but I was taken aback at this half Aussie accent.

    Looks like the poor bugger is stuck between accents like my alternate offering suggested. Must be hard. I know most Aussie actors have had to lose their accents to gain employment over there. (and then when they want an Aussie accent they get a Brit that thinks they can do so.)

    Perhaps in this multicultural world I should have just overlooked it and went with the flow.

    Cheers

    Leepback, it was a parody, it was supposed to seem fake.
