WTF is Cocktail Definition?

Well, well, well...that subject line worked pretty well didn't it? 

I've finally got the video online for your viewing pleasure...and I do mean viewing pleasure because the sound is not worth talking about...just turn it up just in case you miss a line or two...

A reminder, just in case you were unaware, this was the 48 hour film project.

Elements given:

  • Character: Edwin or Eva Lai, hairdresser

  • Prop: Lychee martini

  • Line of dialogue: "What's tomorrow's weather going to be?"

  • Genre: Buddy Film/Dark Humor

This is Cocktail Definition:

Hope that was bearable...

Keep well.

thanks for the comments guys! The sound was off for several reasons and one being we didn't have someone that knew how to operate the mixer we rented. But more specifically, at the end, the line, "I don't know what I am, but you my friend, you are a lychee martini" that line should be louder... And to answer your question Pat, if you were asking about the conclusion, it's basically the start of a relationship/friendship. Through their night of drink tasting, and the outcome of the "date" that Andrew's character had, Sean's character was able to define him with a cocktail, something that Andrew's character apparently likened to and liked.

i watched it again and thought maybe andrew's character admits that he is gay? as in, he went on a date with a girl and it didn't work out ... and the lychee martini was basically a penis (with two lychees and a straw) .... or am i just imagining that?

LOL...the first part is bang on about the date but we never know if it's with a guy or a girl, I wanted to let the audience make an assumption based on his characteristics, although I did write it thinking it would be a guy he's seeing but intentionally omitted that particular detail to keep the audience guessing. At the end, it can be interpreted that Andrew's character starts to fall for Sean's character. Now the lychee martini being a penis, that's definitely imaginative to say the least, but certainly not completely irrelevant because the actual cocktail is symbolic in many ways; how it defines Andrew's character's personality and how it's treated with the last shot. And there was only one lychee in the martini to show loneliness as Sean's character defines Andrew's as "sensitive, lonely, and a bit fruity." I hope that clarifies it a bit more for you...and anyone else that's curious!
