Staring contest

Here's the baddie of the story: DeSeve. Staring.

Now here's the big change for those of you that have been following the progress of Road Rage: I've decided that DeSeve will *not* be a contortionist. As originally planned, I thought it would be a visually fun element to the story but the more I think about it, the less it's needed, it's extraneous. It's shoe leather. So now, he's just a crazed prison escapee in sheep's clothing (or, Armani). The handcuffs will still be on him (not pictured in the video). The prison escapee subplot was always a background "off-screen" story that the audience would have to kind of assume or put together on their own anyway, and the contortion ability , while it would have been kickass to animate, would have, uh, twisted things to the point of confusion. As I currently rewrite the story over and over in Starbucks on Astor (a ritual I have every early early Saturday morning), it felt like I was writing a sequel within a sequel as I tried to incorporate that element into the story. You could have a lot of things going on in a 4 minute film, but a prison escapee who also happens to be a circus freak ain;t one of em.
