    Hi guys,

    We make comedy shorts and sketches and recently completed one about a game of a chess with a difference. Thought the guys and girls on here might appreciate the funny side of it, take a look if you like!  Hopefully it'll bring a smile to your face.

    Silly. Resignation would have been funnier I think.

    B/W cinematography was good.

    Yeah, this is true -- the punchline was delivered halfway through.

    even so i paid not so much atention to it, i also think the cinematography was quite good

    Yeah, the cinematography/look was good.  I thought it would have been improved if both guys (particularly the guy with the glasses) would've taken the proceedings more seriously.

    But the "joke," such as it was, wasn't terribly funny, and then it dragged on pointlessly after that besides.  Anyway, "chess comedy" tends to be a bit like "office humor," I'm afraid... Wink

    Yes, it was amusing but went on way too long.  One of them should have made a move after you first see the board, then have the other resign or something.

    Yeah you could trim it, then insert it into maybe a 5min comedy film.

    This is Belfast chess. The Irish GM on the right missed a stalemate opportunity a move earlier.
