I saw a commercial for this in-car personal assistance system called “OnStar” and it TOTALLY reminded me of my short-film, Daryl From OnCar, which, incidentally, is in competition at the LA Comedy Shorts Film Festival. Hopefully I can earn your support to attend our screening when it is announced, to tell your friends and family to visit Strike.TV and to watch Daryl as well as all of the other big COC (creator-owned-content) at that site.
Anyway, this commercial totally bit off our idea about having an in-dash concierge who manages the important details of your personal life. Ron, DMac and I are thinking about suing this OnStar entity, but we’ll probably be good sports and take a cash settlement instead so that we can make more fillums!
UPDATE: Feb 27 2009 — Daryl From OnCar will screen at the LA Comedy Film Shorts Festival on Friday, March 6th, at 2pm. The venue is the Downtown Independent Theater.
I love you.
