Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival
Sloppy Jones is excited to announce that we were nominated for Best Pilot/Series at Lonely Wolf: London International Film Festival.
“As a first episode, Sloppy Jones is virtually faultless. Jong succeeds in the difficult task of inviting us into the world of these characters and the hilariously morbid circumstances they find themselves facing, all in under four minutes. Thanks to Jamie Hart, Sophie Nation and Jonathan Neil Alexander’s script, the episode is structurally watertight. It creates exposition through individual character interviews and cleverly bookends them with ensemble scenes, anchoring flashbacks and comic off-shoots to the social and spatial parameters of this world.”Hannah Brown, Lonely Wolf
Sloppy Jones seats itself confidently amongst contemporary comedy shows, reading like Schitt’s Creek and embracing the breaking of the fourth wall we know and love from The Office and Modern Family. It does more than play these techniques for laughs, however. It is also showcases representation in comedy; a very welcome thing.
Technical brilliance aside, let’s focus on the simple question of enjoyability. If given half the chance would I binge watch an entire series of Sloppy Jones? Yes, with relish.Hannah Brown, Lonely Wolf
