The latest miniseries from Broadway Video‘s Above Average Network takes on the world of archetypes. It’s called One Take Movies, and it features generic versions of specific genres, all filmed without any cuts.
As with previous Above Average series, there are plenty of eye-winking nods to the ridiculous movie conventions for which viewers willingly suspend disbelief. The first episode takes on the world of superhero films:
One Take Movies has a considerable amount of comedy talent behind it. It is co-created by Avery Monsen, who has an incredible, surreal Vine account, and Jon Bershad, who has a hilarious turn in the web series Nepotism. Ryan Hunter, who directed POYKPAC’s brilliant “Movie Title Breakup” video, is the series’ director. Their combined effort is funny, but it suffers from the same problem as other Above Average series: It’s too short. Two more episodes will arrive before the end of the week, and that will be the end of the season. More, please!
