    I'm sure this clip has useful info, and maybe I'm just a bigot, but I went on lisp overload about 90 seconds in.

    Good start - I like the graphics a lot and the editing was terrific. There's an aesthetic quality to the filming that I really liked, and you're pretty good on camera. My only critique would be ... I thought the interview at the front was a little labored and I skipped through some of it. Good job.

    Because of me or Mike? We're both straight - English isn't Mike's first language, maybe that's it? He's a pretty tough guy.

    Great video! It was very well produced. I think it would be a great intro for the beginner. I don't think either of you really had a lisp. I'm not quite convinced by Mike Hodis' reason as to why the Yukon should be $500. His shop looks cool, though. "One piece of denim in you outfit is enough"?? WTF [​IMG] (kidding) I did LOL, though.

    I've been in the shop and Mike isn't really the nicest guy, but the shop and the wealth of information he is, is amazing. You'd really like a lot of their pieces Zissou. I think most of the stuff is made in the back of the store by that guys sewing in the video.

    The only things not made on-premises by the guy in the video (and his co-worker) are the t-shirts and hats. I found Mike to be super nice, though I was interviewing him [​IMG]. When we went in the first time, incognito, a guy named Levi was working there who really couldn't have been nicer. And the other salesperson, whose name escapes me, is a very, very beautiful young lady.

    But! I think some of the rudiments are little bit opinionated. Sorry for double post.

    Great video! It was very well produced.

    All credit for this goes to Adam. He's very, very talented.

    I've only done in-front-of-the-camera work that wasn't on stage a couple times - made a TV pilot once. Still hard for me, but I think I'm getting better.

    Great video Jesse! Also cool to see you at that Bentzen Ball event. Ian MacKaye is such a goof.

    Been in Rising Sun a few times and Mike does come off as a bit arrogant, but he's pretty nice and if you are genuinely interested in what he does, he's a wealth of information. And yes, Levi is super super nice.
