The Japanese group Gamarjobat really knows how to take old ideas and make them entertaining. These are simple gags that we’ve seen a thousand times yet I find myself smiling and laughing as I watch utilize these simple tricks in their performance. I would say it’s a mix between the setups and misdirects, the sounds they use to imply the emotion and sell reactions, the interaction between the two, as well as knowing the simplicity of the gags themselves can be used to add humor to the show is what keeps me watching. Simple but well executed. Overall some fun mime work to watch!
In my previous post I talked about Don Hertzfeldt’s film Everything Will Be OK and shared a short clip. Well in honor of its 5 year anniversary the ENTIRE film is now online for free! And if you read the video’s description on youtube it goes on to say that you can get the DVD for free with the purchase of anything from his online store.
