There are some ups and downs to an intense competition of this length (5 weeks up until this point). If you didn't like this week's content, maybe check out some of the previous weeks. We try the best we can given the amount of time we have to work on each week's assignment. Not everybody has studio quality equipment at their fingertips. Some groups, like us, are hopeful and energetic people with a camera and not much else in terms of equipment. Sometimes we hit, sometimes we miss.

    I love the title and if I get the concept right I like it but I have not found the first three videos funny and also think the audio/visual quality is not as good as it could be (not that it is bad). Good luck next round and I will check it out and hopefully like it more because like I said it is a good concept it not quite clear yet and based on the title alone I would watch a show called "Ghost Lawyer".

    I got a good idea of the concept from the trailer & the Differentiator, and I think the actor portraying the main character (the writer of the show-within-a-show "Ghost Lawyer") carries the concept well. The concept tickles my funny-bone.

    It's an interesting premise so I was looking for a bit more. Had a hard time hearing the lines due to the home video camera setup.. too bad there wasn't a better production value to your video. It has potential if the homemade factor could be overcome. Best of luck to you with Ghost Lawyer.

All in all, I can appreciate what you've done with this concept and project so far. Ps: Sometimes the lesser production value can work for a concept, but it's gotta be a sweet match! best of Luck!

    I don't want to fault you guys for production values because the whole point of this competition is to take great writers and performers without the means to produce their content and give them visibility, but I agree that this week's video looked a little thrown-together. I like your concept, I like your event idea, and I wish that obvious creativity and passion had been applied to this video.

    Congratulations on making it to the final 55 you obviously done a lot of work to get there with not alot in the way of filming extras to help you. The concept is a remake of maybe an Adams family plot but am not sure it has the depth to go sitcom. Will watch to see if you are able to do something to get it to work.

    I had to play it back a few times to catch everything as I had a hard time with the clarity of it. I also found that the written word was gone before I could read it all. I think the original concept is a good one but this assignment fell flat for me. I found the ending a little disturbing & just a filler for the time. Good luck though & congrats on top 55!

    In terms of constructive comments, I appreciated the self-deprecating humor in this week's video, but I'm not sure if it's a serious pitch to actual media outlets. Perhaps they'll find the fake quotes and trash-talking entertaining, but I was hoping to hear more reasons as to why the show itself deserves coverage. Regardless, good luck with the Top 15!

    I loved the Week 1 teaser and the differentiator video so I'm following and liking and stuff but the rest of the weekly projects haven't done anything for me, the quality's way lower than I expected from the teaser.

    Again, loved this week just as much as the last mission! Great job again! I enjoyed the use of the contract in this film, however I would be cautious with the use of the imovie because it was a little distracting sometimes! But congratulations on making it to the Top 55 and good luck on making it to the Top 15!!

    Interesting take on the sell sheet. The video wasn't really my taste but good work none the less. Good luck.

    I like this concept ghost lawyer is funny, lots of humorous moments and I enjoyed watching it. I am a big self help fan myself but I think this show has great potential and best of luck to all future endeavours. Canadian comedy talent coming together is really fun to see!

    I like the idea of the piece but got slightly distracted by the use of imovie. I like the use of your not so passive aggressive attempt to scare the competition though. That made me smile. Good luck!

    I think you were right about there being confusion. I like the contract idea. That's some good humour right there. The first page of the sell sheet is cool in concept, but kind of dark, text-heavy and a little squinty to read. Best wishes going forward.

    Always hard to tell from the short clip what your show would be about. Not sure that i still know by watching your clip, looking for something I could relate to, humour didn't always comes through. Again not sure what this was trying to show. good Luck this week

    I'd like to see more of the tonal influences in your challenges, some visual shout-outs to perhaps "The Frighteners" and "Ghost Dad." Ah... Ghost Dad. Keep your branding tight and reveal to us each week what this show will look like, feel like, sound like, etc.

    Production value of this was a little low and didn't really tell me very much about the show. The comments also scrolled by too fast to read and enjoy. Would this really go out to media to promote your show?

    Why is the Ghost Lawyer dressed up in a leopard print jacket with headband and sunglasses? Unless that wasn't the Ghost Lawyer, but if not, why did he threaten to "Ghost Bang" everyone?

    I love the idea of a Ghostly Lawyer. That would be first on my list for a list of lawyers to defend me were I to be charged of something. Luckily, as of yet this isn't the case, but I'll keep you in mind!

    I wonder if you guys can post your theme song? Through your twitter or whatever. It's been stuck in my head for like 5 weeks now and I'd like to get it on my ipod nano.

    Guys... I love to love you. This week, you're making it tough. You've got to look like you're putting some effort in. The campiness of this feels like you're not even trying, and I'm supposed to think that's hilarious.

    That was such a random video. I liked the fuzziness at the beginning, it made everything seem kind of ghostly (I'm not sure if the video was meant to be fuzzy, but I like it anyways considering it works with your concept). It might have been a good idea to stick a little closer to your concept rather than the super randomness shown here, but at least it was creative.

    This video just doesn't do it for me and the sell sheet is not eye catching. I know not everyone has professional equipment to work with but I think this is the stage in the competition where other groups are starting to step up their game. This is not something I would want to share with friends or hype up. Other comments point out that this video is different from your other ones, maybe going back to basics would be better.

    Hey Melanie. Thanks for the feedback. We were trying to bring something different. I think we're one week ahead of the Missions ;) We'll bring it next week. We were pressed for time, no real excuse but we all do work on other projects as well as this one so we were actually pretty proud of accomplishing this much in such short time with our limited resources.... See you Friday!

    The production value of this video (in a media competition) is worrisome to say the least. Furthermore, you haven't really said anything new about this project, and that's not encouraging from a group whose end goal is to create an ongoing series. Sorry guys.

    I didn't think this hype video was consistent with the style of the rest of the material produced for Ghost Lawyer so far. Where are the ghosts? Where is the lawyer? I want to see Ghost Lawyer, sheets and legal stereotypes, not pimpin' producer.

    Based on this video I am very glad I did not sign up until the top 55 because the ones already eliminated must be total garbage. I saw nothing entertaining or funny about this show at all. 1 out of 10.

    There are some ups and downs to an intense competition of this length (5 weeks up until this point). If you didn't like this week's content, maybe check out some of the previous weeks. We try the best we can given the amount of time we have to work on each week's assignment. Not everybody has studio quality equipment at their fingertips. Some groups, like us, are hopeful and energetic people with a camera and not much else in terms of equipment. Sometimes we hit, sometimes we miss.

    I can’t stop thinking that I would like this concept more as just the show about a lawyer who represents ghosts. I don’t think you need the show-within-the show part with the writer. It’s the “Ghost Lawyer” part of this that I think people actually find intriguing and I was kind of disappointed that it turned out to just be the “bad show” that a guy has to write…but maybe that’s just me.

    We have had a lot of feedback both ways. We get a lot of what you're saying but we also get a lot of love for the writer who has to create a really bad show... We hear ya for sure. I think both can work and in the writer writing a really bad show you still get to see the version of the show you are describing in every episode. We feel you get the best of both worlds with the direction we are taking Ghost Lawyer :)

    I think if I were to ever have a lawyer, I’d want them to be a ghost. Or maybe I’d want a lawyer that’s represented ghosts in the past, so nothing would really shock them. Hm. Now I’m going to have to think about this.
