Film Description
Thanks to PegLeg for the Summer of Funk Inspiration. So how could we not feature him?

Music & lyrics by Errol GuitarKing

Vocals by Maria FunkyBoots

But, at the end of the day, all of it is down to the incomparable, undeniable, indisputable wonderfulness that is Maria FunkyBoots.
She is, I'm sure you'll all agree. a "STAR"

Norrie (Hands up if you're with me?)

A movie to catch out any sucka! I can see the Man ducking and diving, the funk train is gaining speed and he can't hold it back! It had me movin and a groovin and I dare anyone not to move their ass to this funky beat. The wah wah was wah wah wonderful and this is a funk overdose. The old folks certainly know how to get a party goin!
All in all a fun fuelled funktastic example of a music video. It must get a funky five for it's awesome flow and jive. My hands are well and truly in the air, and they're waving like I just don't care. My hat off to Errol and Maria sounds familiar and she's one bad mama jama.

Great work! Some very cool music and the video was pretty far out there.

FunkyBoots - what a great name!

Hi!
Yeah, it was a very funny moment. I like a lot the sound and specially the voice of Maria FunkyBoots, you're right, she's a star ;). I like the style of this movie, the "normal" people which spent a cool and groovy moment. It was a pleasure to watch that different movie.
Thank you!
See you!

Well done, a rather different film, actually let me just go straight forward. Probably the most weirdest film I've seen on TMO, but brilliant, well done, and thanks.

Yours,

I really got a big smile out of this--a few of them in fact. This was a true celebration of life (and lifestyles). Great choice of outfits for the funky folk, and the ending scene was particularly humorous.

A great music video and very entertaing & funny. I can't write that much about music vids. Simply if I enjoyed them or not, so - I put my hand up!

He he, funny! But I like the music more than the dancing.

Gotta love the funk! Definetely looks like you had fun making this, and Sisch had to enjoy the opportunity to break loose with a little music! Was fun to watch and dance along with.

A tentative hand raised here - she's not bad, and I would have liked her to have been raised in either gain or top end during the early parts of the song. I thought she was down in the mix and struggled to understand her words.

Some good shots visually, but I wanted to see more action in terms of editing. It seemed a lot of effort was paid to the song, but not that much to the visuals.

Yay, Norrie! it was brilliant.

Glad you got rid of the drums at the beginning. :D The song sounded (for lack of a better word) very funky! Sisch sounded incredible. Not only is she a super voice actor, she's also a marvelous singer! Hurrah!

Feel the funk!

Andy_Inc's short film contest review!

The movie was very well done, and although Andy did state that the movie had to have plot, this film still succeeded as a movie with a story. Three elderly people want to shake things up so they decide to put on a funky 60's style show for their fellow old folks. Simple, easy, and just what a short film needs.
The music was well done and melded nicely with the scenes. Maria FunkyBoots (Sisch) sang that sang with elegance and sensuality. A very good entry that should definetely be considered a finalist in my book.

Nice vocals. I enjoyed that very much!

Oh hum, I hate being honest. Nice music but for me there were a few timing and tuning issues on the vocals (Don't all throw things at me). This was probably down to the way they were recorded, if I'm correct Sisch wasn't in the studio at the time but rather sent the recordings to you. The music was very good and I'm sure the funk purest will love it, personally I like the "Brand New Heavies" style.

Video was not much to be honest, seemed to me that the music was made and then something created to fill the visual void. I'm not trying to be harsh but I always compare to what has gone before and this is a million miles from the best of TMO.

Good music, questionable vocals (No fault of the performer) and average video -Should be 2 stars but I'll give this 3.

That was enjoyable Norrie, the music was nice and clear..great vocals, and just an overall good and non-lame feel to this, conducive to the hour and mood that I'm watching it.(3 in the morning.. half cut.. perfect viewing parameters!


Sisch is now the girl of my dreams after that performance.. :)

Hey, I've been searching on Travelocity for "Funk Train" and I don't get any results. How do I get me some of these tickets? I want to jump on board! Great little music video. I loved Sisch's vocal.

Very impressed.
Loved the concept and everything. Great music to fuel Sisch in her great singing. She has some balls! Figuratively speaking... :)
Great Job here Norrie!!!

Extreme!!! You took drab characters and infused them with FUNK! WOW!!! Look at what happened!!! Sisch adds the letters "H", "O", and "T" in the word FUNK. A definite download! ===K4===

huhu :)
was gibt es schöneres als bei einem "sisch" film seine rückkehr anzukündigen :D

zum film:
ok da war so gut wie keine story, aber warum sollte ein film der "nur" unterhaltungswert hat keine 5 sterne bekommen dürfen?^^

Haha, that was so strange in a positve way of course. Really enjoyed it. The music was extremely well composed and went well with sisch sexy and mature voice. How you manage to get this little vid in high res I dont understand either:) Excellent Excellent work here Norrie ..

tune was pretty sweet.
the vid was extremely lacking. the only thing it really had going for it was the high res.

... and during the ungodly hour when only old people are awake.. they invade the club with their surpisingly unsaggy bodies and.....

Whooooo-eeeeeee - that's some funky.....(shut your mouth)....but I'm talking about Norrie and Sisch...(they can dig it)

What do you get when you mix the Whip of Justice with Funkmaster Norrie? Some smooth, funky fun. We want more! We want....an album!
