I am Joel!\n\nI am a filmmaker! I make shorts and features and post them all on this channel!\n\nTHE PROMISE:\nIf you make a movie (a feature length film, 40+ minutes) and send it to me, I will watch it. \n\nMaking movies is so possible nowadays, all my features cost anywhere from $0-$500. I see my promise to watch people's movies as a nice form of encouragement. There are so many systems and roadblocks (and lies) in place that keep us unambitious and apathetic in the medium, and I hope the promise that a filmmaker will watch and care about your hard work can be that little push some may need to create something bigger.\n\nI also encourage people to make short films and lots of them! Short films are great grounds for fun and experimentation, and you get better and better at filmmaking every time you make a short. Because shorts are so much easier to make, I can't promise to watch everyone's shorts.\n\nConsider supporting my work on Patreon - www.patreon.com/joelhaver

    This was so painful in the best possible way. Made me feel connected to an older part of myself. Dating is both stressful and desensitizing, especially if you're on the carousel for too long. This reminded me of that, and gave me some retrospective hope.

  2. Rob Chapman

    What the hell is this channel. What glorious nonsense have i discovered

  3. Rose Hall

    The dislikes all have health bars and are an enemy to themselves

  4. TheNamelessOne

    They look like they're bullying him in a weird way.

    Good video, btw there is a small windows loading icon on the bottom right here - 4:01

    Hey, it's me. Your guy. I just wanted to say that I hope you are doing ok. I know that a sudden boost in popularity can sometimes make content creators become their own enemies. If you ever feel like maybe your getting burnt out, getting imposter syndrome, or any of the social anxiety syndromes; it's ok to take a step back and take a break. I don't think anyone could disagree with that. Also, enjoy what you're doing. Anyway. Be safe and if you feel tired, pull over on the side of the road and take a nap. Remember, driving tired is just as bad as driving under the influence.

    This without the context makes zero sense

  8. ReasonableAttempt

    But what was Oyster named after

  9. bzqp2

  10. Sylvia S

  12. Rooster

    'I'd say I grew up in a pretty well off, upper-middle class family.' 'But did your dad hit you' Something about the delivery just fucking killed me man

  13. Frefre McGee

  18. Ethereal Marksman

  19. Cave Canem

    Marshall the rat- "So anyway I started blastin"

  20. Ethereal Marksman

    was sleeping with your videos on auto play then this came up, and i couldn't sleep. 15 minutes in i kept hearings things so relatable and nostalgic that it woke me up and kept me from being able to sleep. I had to take a look and identify the emotions and faces and body language of the girls you were talking to. :/ this is relatable and unrelatable all at the same time, guess we all try to drown out our loneliness differently but through similar means.

  21. GJ kim

    interesting idea to go for the bear hug gambit it's rarely accepted and doesn't gain much in terms of pieces

  29. Julie Lockyer

    The spirit of Picasso was guiding that paint brush

  32. Adrian Coto Muñiz

    Such a great character development 👏👏

  33. Julie Lockyer

    Jeez... I’m honestly so so so surprised your channel didn’t blow up until now, I’m sure everyone here can agree with me when I say that we’re sorry it took this long to find you. On another note, this cry for help was by far one of the best I’ve ever seen. I am reminded of how alone I am in my own company. Thank you Joel :’)

    It’s weird how Joel’s early films range from absolute masterpiece level to...this, with no readily apparent arc

  47. Glen S
