Have Cheetah,Will View #265 – “Greg’s Guardian Angel” (2013)

It’s 6:07 pm
cold/dark

Looked in my email box and saw that our king of the short film,Timothy J. Cox,had left a massive early Christmas present in the form of 12 short films.
So we decided to kick off the fun with “Greg’s Guardian’s Angel” with has a man dealing with a earnest but rather stupid guardian angel.

What really threw us in this quick 10:20 second film was looking for our main man Timothy,he plays Mr. Schmaven,a big shot at Spatgo who offer Greg a huge job performance. I actually had to hit the replay button because I didn’t recognize Timothy!
The film itself is perfect at 10 minutes because Elmer J. Santo’s guardian angel schtick wears REALLY fast.  Greg Vorob does a nice job as Greg,he has a nice comedic touch and I like to see more of his work.

The film was directed by Dan Kowalski and written by Dave Conrad. The story is fine and I like short films for new directors because they learn as much as any new actors do.
In this case,I think a slightly firmer hand on Santo’s angel would have produced more laughs but instead becomes quickly annoying and was a turn off.

The cheetah left after 2 minutes in….

We liked the premise,just not Santo’s performance.

  1. Apparently, the cheetah knows what’s what and when to leave!
    Nothing more annoying than being annoyed during something that’s meant to be funny.
    Ha.
