Romeo Theater

Romeo Theater is a great way of getting short films out and seen. John Romeo is a film maker and has an open call to submission from anyone who has the creativity and gumption to put out a short film.

As for John’s productions, they have decent production value and are well edited and composed. John has a flare for this and it comes out in his work. You can see when someone enjoys their work because it shows in the crafting of the show. While the productions are strong they still can be considered amateur film making, which adds to the strength of the show.

The stories are fun to watch and will at some moment touch each person with a sense of Dejavu about someone they know. They are witty and well written. They actors are the common person, but it rarely takes away from the feature, in fact it augments the show to make it even better.

This is a good webcast to keep track of and even submit to when you think you have something worth putting out on the web.

Ask a Ninja

Ask a Ninja is a small, humble vidcast (adding sarcasm) that teaches the great wisdom and ways of the Ninja. I would tell you more but then I would have to kill you. For the ways of a ninja are not just for mortal ears, you must be a special person to understand the calling.
The Ninja comes on and answers viewers email. He then dispenses his worldly view of how the ninja see the answer to the question, then promptly and as always threatens to kill us all. As far as I can surmise, due to the fact you can never get a straight answer out of the creators, the show started from a funny web site about ninjas. This web site, be it real or not, looks like a 12 year old boy did it. One that is totally enthralled with ninjas and what makes them tick.

The show is amazing. Production level is one of the best I have seen. The use of green screen adds to the skits and makes for even more comedy through graphics and special effects. The sound quality and editing is on par with a broadcast show.

The writing is tight and keeps you in stitches. I have convereted almost everyone I have shown the Ninja to watch this show as much as possible. It does take a few watches, and I suggest watching an old episode called, “Ninja Dogs” to start off your viewing of the greatest ninja act to come out of California.

Watch for the crew of this show to come out with some good cracks and possible delve into things you feel no-one should ever go. Beware that if you don’t have a sense of humor,¬† are heartless or are Republican, you might¬† not find this show to your liking.
