Back in 2008 Josh Gross, Jen Cipperly and I set out to make a web series made up of short single shot vignettes called The Recession Special.

Heavily influenced by our crappy economy, and the great director Roy Andersson, but without any of his vast set building resources...this is what we came up with for a pilot test. There's plenty of foley work left to do, but alas I am a lazy American.

We never went any further in the series, but I discovered this hidden away in a stored hard drive and thought to throw it up online.
