I am Joel!\n\nI am a filmmaker! I make shorts and features and post them all on this channel!\n\nTHE PROMISE:\nIf you make a movie (a feature length film, 40+ minutes) and send it to me, I will watch it.\n\nMaking movies is so possible nowadays, all my features cost anywhere from $0-$500. I see my promise to watch people's movies as a nice form of encouragement. There are so many systems and roadblocks (and lies) in place that keep us unambitious and apathetic in the medium, and I hope the promise that a filmmaker will watch and care about your hard work can be that little push some may need to create something bigger.\n\nI also encourage people to make short films and lots of them! Short films are great grounds for fun and experimentation, and you get better and better at filmmaking every time you make a short. Because shorts are so much easier to make, I can't promise to watch everyone's shorts.\n\nConsider supporting my work on Patreon - www.patreon.com/joelhaver

    The animation is terrible. The voices are dumb. Plot goes nowhere, and I feel uncomfortable watching it. Please make more. I love it.

    It's not real isn't it, the carbon monoxide thing, it's just screenwriting. c'mon I'm not feeling comfortable watching this

  17. MagicCuboid

    Joel, the reality and beauty of this film kind of leaves me at a loss for words. Authentic, beautiful, tragic... In one scene, you ask the question of what love is, and I believe your film is so genuine in trying to answer that question. You show us that love is the willingness to share in our inherent vulnerabilities, to rely on one another. Thank you for allowing yourself to be vulnerable, and sharing some love with the rest of us. I also hope the other actors are proud of the work you've achieved together. It's one thing to write and frame a story in such an enthralling way, but the performances here really do sell it and make it feel real. I don't even know you, but for some reason I just feel so proud of you for the success you've found and the work you've already achieved!

    I watched Cody banks 2 last year after sorting out all my old DVD’s. If I were any less nostalgic I’m sure it would be a terrible movie.

    How not a goddamned single person told me about you and your work, Joel, is my greatest regret. I need new friends. Full stop. This film is the greatest film I've seen in the last five years. And I mean that. I've watched Old Boy within the last five years. You are a true, goddamned artist who is deeply inspiring me to create for myself again. I've worked in advertising the last three years and it has been my only output creatively in that time. Since discovering your channel I have been watching at least 3 of your shortfilms every day and since then I have yet to watch a single one that I didn't love for one reason or another. Truly, your creativity and drive are a force that has inspired me to begin production on, technically my first shortfilm, WORLD EVENTS. Thank you, Joel. Maybe you'll get the chance to watch my film someday.

  25. Connor

    This is genuinely the most personal thing I've ever seen in my life. I feel like I've lived this life, felt this pain, felt this love. Even though I've only seen a glimpse. Thank you deeply for showing this, I cannot conceive how hard it would have been to share all these personal moments to the public. I feel honored.

  26. Zenobeus

    Thanks for taking the time.

  51. Reis Parker

    Fuck Lance. All my homies hate Lance. Also this movie captures a lot of painfully real awkwardness. This was the first of your movies I gave a go. Came for the RPG animation stayed for the raw emotional movie.

  52. Alex W

    You're laughing. This guy pooed his own butt out of his whole butt, and you're laughing.

  61. captain_awesome 21

    I am sad to say that this was me all through middle school. Thinking that classic rock was the superior form of music and everything else was crap.

  62. Football Dude

  63. Joel Bender

    Joel, you're incredible. I felt so much watching this. It's such a true telling of something really messed up happening, and then having a nice weekend, but just reliving the messed up thing the whole way through. Love your work.
