If you missed the first video, watch Lou Needs a Clue first.

  1. Still a very cool site design, but I’m not sure really what’s going on here.

    I guess we’ll find out as the episodes go on.

    Good way to hook readers in though. Keep them coming back for more.

  2. Jack’s my kinda guy.

    Does he do lunch ?

    Is he available for joint ventues πŸ˜‰

    Great use of “video”.

  3. Am I the first to notice that both characters you used are names used in Fight Club (Lou’s basement)? I’ll be looking for the next subliminal.

    Nice vid T.

  4. Buck, yes you are.

    Marla is up next. πŸ™‚

  5. Well as I haven’t watched ‘Fight Club’ I don’t see the connections – however I do recognise good marketing hooks when I see them…

    Keep them coming…………

  6. Melody, don’t worry. The Fight Club references are only there to amuse people who’ve read or seen Fight Club.

    The story is independent. πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Brian,
    the videos/comics are awesome…keep up the exellent work…to your success!!!

  8. Brian and Tony,

    Wow, what a lot of work. It’s just beautiful (well, you know, in a cool sort of a way).

    I’m curious as to what the main typeface is for LA? It’s similar to a sporty favorite of mine called Revival but a bit more restrained.

    Looking forward to your next installment….



  9. Man, I hope I don’t turn out like Lou. I’m pretty organized like him (I’m an Accounting grad) but I am trying to be more creative and flexible like Jack.

    Can you be both organized and creative? πŸ™‚

    I look forward to more content on Lateral Action to increase my creativity. Thanks for the cool videos.

  10. Kelly, the font is Tandelle (beautiful in a cool sort of way — I like that πŸ™‚ ).

  11. I love the idea, the creativity, the mad animation skills, the equally mad ability to make a point in such a short time.

    I was Jack once upon a time… Hope to get there again someday. Right now, I am just an unorganized Lou.

    We shall see how it all turns out.

    Keep up the great work.
