Chet Reagan is the next Robert Deniro! This project has been described as "Transcendent." A marvellous modern take on the age-old question of "Wtf is wrong with me?". Just brilliant!

    Congratulations on making it to the Top 55! Creative team and really good concept. It’s tough to come up with solid product each week. Best of luck moving into the top 15.

    Your team can act, and because Chet is super- talented, the teammates might have to ramp it up a bit, too. Their sense of comedic timing is great though, which shows talent. And congratulations on your concept of a guy trying to find his way through helping others; that's a situation that happens in real life and helps fans relate!Self Help stands out, even without old tinhead.

    Hm, it's good, but like some others said I'm having a bit of trouble catching on to what it's all about. I like being able to see the different character personalities though.(: Although you said previously that the 'DifferentiaTOR' is to help show your differences, I still find it hard to see it achieving that purpose. It's an interesting twist though! Good luck.

    If helping yourself is the key here, I think I'm going to help myself to watching your other videos. They've been quite delightful so far, so I see no reason to stop here!

    Interesting set-up. Great pay off, loved the build up to how the team was looking at the door behind them. Also loved the "differentia-TOR" great idea pay that man or group of men, or if a mixed group of people include the women, or if the group is just women, the women; the million dollars, cause its going to pay dived ins.

    I am confused. I am not sure what this video was about. Is the robot the Differenciator? If so how is that? It Seems like there was no connection in the communication between the characters. It is not flowing. I liked the action though.

    The idea is that what makes us different is we literally have a robot named 'DifferentiaTOR' we were trying to 'show' why we are different rather than 'tell' that is all.

    Yes a lot of people today are looking for self-help and that can get pretty funny, or not! It all depends. But you guys are a good team, and I like your characters. I did not understand what the robot was doing there... can you explain that?

    Like I mentioned in another comment, the robot was a throw away concept as to help us 'show' why we are different rather than sit on a couch and 'tell' Thanks for your feedback, a lot of people got hung up on the robot being in the actual show but it was meant to just be an off the wall idea as we were doing a behind the scenes look at our team and why we were different. hahaha

    Blaze you are playing yourself: the selves that zoom from character to character. Cast mates are great--not sure about the foil man--is he a great foil for the rest of y'all?

    I have absolutely no idea what the concept is going to be ... seemed all over the map. Where does the robot/tin foil guy fit in? Is he only part of this video? Is he part of the ongoing episodes? Was it different? Oh ya!?

    To address your comment, 'this' is going no where, merely a one off creative take on 'The Differentiator'. We weren't interested in sitting in front of the camera and trying to explain why we are different or what makes us different. We are trying to show more than tell. It is however too bad you didn't find it funny as that is important for comedy haha but I hope you'll give us another look in the coming weeks. Thanks for your feedback!

    I think it's great that you guys try to be funny in each of your videos but I'm not sure if what you've got could really be made into a series. From your synopsis I take away that it's supposedly about bloggers who help others? maybe? I'm really quite confused about where you are taking this after comparing your videos to your synopsis. Good luck in the competition though!

    Try is the key word, succeed to be funny? That's another story. It's good to know that you are having trouble understanding what the concept is. (To be honest maybe we didn't even know...) But basically Chet Reegan is a Motivational/Self Help Guru who has lost touch with his audience and with and entourage tries to stop his success from slipping away, while others wait to take his place among the elite motivators. Our teaser was basically Chet Reegan's attempt at making a reality show where he helps individuals. Hope that helps thanks for the feedback!
