Excellent! Congratulations.
The final gag at the end nailed it!

Good to see Silent film spirit in a modern production with crystal clear image clarity.

Great job! I plan on showing it to my daughter; I think she will like it (and maybe even learn a little lesson).

You know, I normally despise most modern takes on silent films because they are patronizing and just perpetuate incorrect stereotypes about films of the era. Your film contained none of those and while it was obviously modern, it did have that period feel to it.

Great stuff! Keep up the good work!
