When I try that link it goes to a clip only 1:19 long and no cine., but I like this one where they use the barn wall outside for a screen as theirs is too near the projector to fill
Start at 4:20.

What great 8 or 16mm shorts these would be! They're a little bit Laurel and Hardy, and a little bit Wallace and Gromit too.

Them putting their screen up reminded me of Thursdays at CineSea!

I thought the same thing Steve!

It would be so cool to have these printed to super 8 colour low fade as shorts. That would be amazing to watch on projector!

Brian, the link 'should' work. make sure your browser is clean of malware redirecting you! The film is over an hour and the whole film is pat and mat watching their home videos, including the projector screen setup and other fantastic blunders!
i can so relate!!! [Big Grin]

Strangely, without altering anything, it works now. The previous one I saw from the link was a Pat & Mat but shorter.

Very funny, very "silent film-esque"!
