Despite Hollywood's unrelenting insistence on making movies, there remains little doubt that the glory days of high-budget, blockbusting motion pictures are sadly long gone. Once there stood proud and majestic creations, symbols of hard work and patience, products of visionaries and dreamers. Now there just stand a few blue-screens, blemished with those who laughably pass as actors as they desperately pretend to hide from some yet-defined creation that the CG designers have been too busy being rich to concoct. Mister Conspicuous acts as testament to this sad tale. The short film is a five-minute mock-trailer, listing the accumulating errors of the movie industry as it spirals downwards to join 'Radio' and 'Jukeboxes' in the deep dark pit of forgotten leisure. It offers a lighthearted look at the darkening soul of Hollywood's suffering portfolio. Despite the trailer's repeated suggestions of highly financed action, it should be duly noted that Mister Conspicuous was made on a budget of $25 and a packet of cigarettes.
