Episode 348 of 489 episodes

Don’t ever ask me to film your wedding. Find out why in this episode. Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:24 Fast dialog: 14:01 Amelia: I wish we had hired a professional videographer to film it instead of asking your friend Lenny to do it. Victor: This video isn’t so bad. The production quality isn’t the best, but he did a pretty good job. Amelia: It’s not bad if you like your video out-of-focus. There are no transitions between scenes and the lighting is terrible. At best, it looks like a rough cut. Victor: It is a little rough, I admit. Amelia: There are problems with the audio, too. There are sections of dead air when the audio cuts out. And when there is audio, the volume isn’t uniform. Victor: That’s true, too, I guess… Amelia: And the handheld camera footage is so shaky that I feel ill watching it. Victor: Lenny was just having a good time, getting into the spirit of it. Amelia: Is that why he got close-up shots of all of the pretty women and none of the other guests? Victor: Well, you know Lenny. He’ll do better next time. Amelia: Next time?! How many times do you plan to get married? Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
