A Watchable STUDENT Film?!
- Article by Nick Plagman
- February 2, 2011
Each year for the last decade, Campus Movie Festival (CMF) has travelled to colleges and universities across the country, providing student teams with a camera, laptop with editing software, tripod, microphone, and 1 week- everything necessary to make an unwatchable, cliché-ridden pile of crap more painfully boring than The American.
But the monumental failures of the vast majority of students who think originality can be achieved with a parody of a 70s style police interrogation, another attempted rip-off of The Real World, or a "thriller" that spends three of the film's five minutes following a young chick down a dimly-lit hallway should not underscore the value of the service provided by CMF, nor the value of being on their staff and every week getting paid to travel to and stay in a different college town filled with drunken hotties... (stay tuned for news on the soon-to-be proposed 2011 Black Sheep Intern College Tour).
Thus, while finding a decent film at a university amongst a sea of students calling themselves "filmmakers" is akin to finding the next Lil' Wayne in downtown Detroit amongst a sea of unemployed urbanites calling themselves "rappers," occasionally a stroll through the inner city can lead to the discovery of the next James Cameron- provided he hasn't been shot for tilting his cap at the wrong angle. CMF's recent stroll through Athens, GA, home of the only university (UGA) in the nation that can compete with Florida in hottie-population density, led to such a discovery.
The film: Great Guy. The writer/director/producer/editor/co-star: Nick Plagman. And yes, it's the same Nick Plagman who wrote an article about a 6th-grader getting suspended for offending Somali students with ham in a lunch bag that led to a major lawsuit against Fox News (sorry liberals, Fox News won the original case and the appeal).
But the man remains a mystery- no one knows who he is or where he came from. His bio says he was born in Iowa, but no one's born in Iowa so that's obviously a cover. He may very well be CIA, NSA, or CTU, but current intel suggests he's FAG. Whatever the case, The Black Sheep Online intends to find out- after they watch his movie one last time...
The film may not have given Avatar a run for its money since it's not in 3D, but the story here isn't that Plagman wrote and directed a watchable student film capable of producing laughs, it's that a talent such as Plagman has gone undiscovered for so long. How talented is he? Like, really talented. He's really good at writing really funny stuff that's really well written, and his use of descriptive adverbs is really good.
Despite never having done so in the past, Plagman agreed to be interviewed by the Black Sheep Online under the condition that the interviewer be hot; intern Brad was sent. Here is the transcript- but please, no jokes about Black Sheep's acronym.
BS: That was such a great film, what was your inspiration?
Plagman: Cause I'm not gay.
BS: I didn't say you--
Plagman: Good, cause I'm not.
BS: How do you produce such brilliant comedy? What's your comedic process?
Plagman: I guess probably the same way you produced those amazing abs- lots of sweat and hard work.
BS: ... How did you get started on this path to--
Plagman: You know, I live right down the street...
Due to FCC restrictions and death threats from Christian organizations we are unable to post the rest of the interview. But even if Plagman's the type of douche who talks about himself in the third person, we here at The Black Sheep Online encourage you to take a few minutes to check out his video. And if you're a hot chick, for no particular reason we also encourage you to friend him on facebook, especially if you live within driving distance.
