I managed to finish my Napoleon costume in time, with the help of my lovely assistant Winnie. Below is the 80% complete version. I’ll upload the 100% complete when I take a new photo.
What did you dress-up as today?
I dressed up as the ideal employee:

Whenever I think about Jersey I think about the tv show jersey shore.
Turns out FX has put together this weird dramatic mini series. It’s just short clips of the lives of people in Jersey, getting into trouble, then it cuts away to their past or future.
I’ve seen this style in movies before, but I haven’t see this in a TV series format. The problem is trying to keep the audience as they jump from timeline to timeline. I feel this can cause the viewer to become lost. Another challenge with this style of narrative is not letting the audience know who is the good guy. I find if you turn away for a moment, you can easily loose track of characters. For instance in the youtube video, I wasn’t sure if the dude making out with the girl was the same dude she met 30 hours earlier.
The acting from the clip I wasn’t the greatest. In some cases though it felt a little forced, like a 80′s porno. Not that I know what those are like…
All in all it looks like it would be an interesting watch all the way through with the ability to rewind. What do you guys think?
