Slyke’s always seems to have some odd comedy Involved with his films and this is one of them. A man named Robert played by Kennedy is narrating the story where a friend used to be a friend named Dave, started leaving bananas everywhere they hung out, He never did find out why, nor did he ever see Dave again but he did end up meeting the love of his life.

Can I watch this again I have to give a little bit of a chuckle, this is weird, I believe abstract and come be taken as is or added to But I generally enjoy or have enjoyed Dan Katula’s Characters in Slyke’s films you kind of have to see it to believe it.  It’s kind of like a cycle repeats itself kind of short film.  I dug it so I definitely think if you haven’t seen it and you’re short film lover and you like films that are local from Milwaukee you should definitely seek the  film out you may actually enjoy it.

Slyke’s always seems to have some odd comedy Involved with his films and these two are two of them the first being A Sextape Attempt.

The film stars John Van Slyke’s  as a man was trying to videotape his significant other and himself on their first time making love,  but as life would have it the man does not know how to keep the tape rolling nor did he realize that he was Tipping over a very important moment in their daughter’s life.

Starring Libby Amato, Dan Katula, Robert W.C. Kennedy, Jason Powell, Jocelyn Ridgely, Jon Van Slyke.

In the second attempt Your The Best we see John once again playing I believe the same man same couple, attempting another video and once again he does not realize that the camera wasn’t even turned on But also Is a failed attempt but these are adult situations with amateur adults want to spice up their love life with a video but are unable to with their bad videotaping skills.

Honestly these are abstract short films probably made for fun with friends but I enjoyed watching them they were comical and entertaining and I believe the third  choice ensemble actors that involve themselves with John Van Slyke’s films are seasoned and some of the best so definitely check these films out if you can find them they are rather hilarious.
