Glimpses of Bitter Litter

A couple of posts ago I mentioned my short film Bitter Litter in passing. I'm certain that the parties involved (Ron, Jeff, Susan and Steven) would punish me should I ever lose my wits and post it on YouTube, but I thought it might be fun to share a few screencaps to give discerning filmgoers an idea of the picture's quality (or lack thereof):
As the mad scientist (Susan) looks on, Basil (Jeff) examines the robot (Steven) with his "brain machine." Shot on location in Susan's apartment!
An angry bystander (Ron) confronts Basil after the robot kills "his brother"/"that man!" (We weren't big on continuity.)
But Basil turns the tables: "I'll strangle you, you fiend! Strangle you!"
But the robot runs amok, killing Basil.
Of all the films we made while members of the University of Alberta Star Trek Club, this was probably the worst - our "Plan 9," if you will. And yet I still look upon it with fondness to match the disgust and repulsion of my cast.

We may be through with the past, but as long as Earl is around it will never be through with us.
