    Absolutely brilliant, Peter. Congratulations. I'm glad that we finally got to see it. How many hours went onto the production?

    Oh gee, thanks. Not sure it's briliant, but I am proud of my work.

    Time on the production was minimal - I shot the whole thing in maybe two hours on a Saturday afternoon. What was killer was post production. I literally had to go in and mask off by hand every other (and sometmes each) frame of each one of me to create those composite shots. 30 fps X 90 seconds X 4 Peters X three camera angles, well you do the math. Truth is I lost a lot of steam on this after my China trip, so if you look close at the high res version you can see where it slips.

    Overall for editing, I'd say it was easily 40 hours of time in the computer to mask off all those shots. Hence the "Too Much Time on My Hands" production moniker.

    I did see a few slips in the hi res version but it's not distracting at all. That definitely sounds like a lot of PP work. Too bad you didn't have 24 Peters to help out

    No Peter. the guys are right.....absolutely brilliant

    I like to fiddle a bit with video editing at home and I know the hours required for the editing....not to mention the thought that obviously went into the idea in the first place. Video positioning, timing of looks and turns, matching dialogue......a lot of thought.

    I was smiling the whole time while watching......and even loved the final "solo" comment at the end.

    Any chance we could see the "bloopers" reel

    OK - I'll take brilliant.

    I'm glad you appreciate the effort that went into this. The finished product looks simple but for something like this, a lot of thought did indeed go into it. The hardest part while shooting was the timing of the dialogue. I did very little editing there. Rather, while playing each "character" I went through the whole piece in my mind trying to time out that Peter's lines just right. Also, when playing poker bets proceed to the right, so just getting that right took some effort.

    The solo bit at the end I thought was funny, but also showed how each take was done in a vaccum. There were three empty spaces (not even chairs) and I had to try to create eyelines, etc., where there was nothing.

    Again, it's not perfect and I wish I had come up with a more compelling "storyline", but overall I think it works (esp. on a small screen). There weren't really any outakes/bloopers since I was just winging the dialogue.

    Thanks again for the kind words.
