The Love-Life of Wallace P. Fitzgerald

Hi-ho, Timothy Deal here. Well, I missed my goal of posting this in time for Valentine's Day, but hopefully people are still in the mood for romantic comedy. As we've mentioned in the podcast, The Love-Life of Wallace P. Fitzgerald is a short film that Nick wrote and I directed, produced, and acted in during my senior year at Taylor University. It's similar in tone and spirit to Nick's earlier cinematic excursion, The Taylor Trilogy, but I hadn't gotten around to putting it on YouTube.

Until now.

Actually, I was a little hesitant about putting it online since, as a graduate film student, I knew there were a number of problems with the film due to my relative inexperience at the time it was made. Still, we've talked about it often enough on the podcast and a lot of people worked on it who deserve to have their work available online. Plus, it is a fun story; it just needed a bit of polish.

So before posting, I did some digital restoration (color correction on certain scenes) and added some music in places that desperately needed it. (Thankfully, I now have more resources for finding music.) As a result, while the picture is far from perfect, I honestly believe it's better now than it ever has been before.

So, with all that said, I hope you'll enjoy this piece of our storytelling history. Also, be on the lookout for future releases of vintage collaborative productions from Nick and Tim! We've got more to unleash on you...when we get around to it. Stay tuned!

  1. I haven't watched this yet, but seeing makes me want to go make amateur movies. I'm jealous! I'd love to work with you guys if you and/or Nick ever decide to film something again.
