Our inter-dimensional adventure begins, when Dan is hired as the newest employee at Thrift Video!



Cant say I have seen much of these but this was actually pretty enetertaining I like the visual here as it was different and you have some good characters here, and some nice jokes in a way I like the randomness of it all its a good little film you have here and I personally hope to see more of this.

make more of these, and longer.


I'm guessing you grew up on invader zim? this had a similar creepy and dark humor.
looks good, even if nothing much happened yet. This looks like it's got a lot of potential though and I'd like to see more.
oh, and I thought the film reel effect was a neat touch.
wacky, unsettling and goofy, in good measure.

Thanks! And Invader Zim was a great show. This is more what happens to a mind when a kid grows up on Duck Tales and Saved by the Bell mixed with some Lost Highway while coming-of-age in the New England Winter gloom.

Reminded me of shows like Squidbillies, and Aqua teen hungerforce. It had that late night 2:30am adultswim vibe. I liked the creepy humor and characters. Really Good.

Exactly! You da man. More to come...

I love Nate and Dave. Those two definitely had me smiling a lot. I really like the concept of an inter-dimensional world at a thrift video store; the random shit that happens is different and refreshing. You never know what's going to happen next so it keeps me on my toes.

Wow! Thanks for this. Random is the key word, for sure...but look closely and you'll see there is a lot more going on then meets the eye. More to come! Thanks for the review!

Just okay. I laughed once. You had me at arousing, but -- without being too revealing -- it never happened. Not my humor? Would have preferred a different script.

Haha -- it's definetly not mainstream humor, but our hope is that it grows on people (not like fungus though). Two more episodes are up and we've got 9 more in the works! Feel free to share our campaign (closes December 23rd) at thriftvideo.com and thanks for the review!
