Q: Why are billions wasted each year on legal counsel?

Answer: This short film, "Verbatim: What is a Photocopier" will give a comedic glimpse at the answer. Most of the hard earned dollars are spent paying lawyers to argue, (or have their clients argue) minuscule language interpretations and nonsensical semantic differences. This short film uses the verbatim transcript from a deposition of a Ohio State employee, and it is hilarious. This ridiculous and witty word for word dialogue gives us a glimpse at the sad state of the legal system: Ten minutes of 4 professional peoples lives are wasted on dancing around the definition of a photocopier, and now, thanks to Director Brett Weiner, ten more minutes will be wasted by you laughing at the situation! It's a vicious cycle.

'Not Over' a smile inducing short

This little diddy is brought to us by  Toru Hayai (Direction & Animation).  The imagery, story, and accompanying music for this giant stuffed bear are all too grasping not to post.  We are surprised this short has not been adapted into a commercial yet. This one is surely worth its run time of 1:35.
