Sam Anderson, our frontman and lead actor, has completed his first directorial debut at James Madison University under his education major. The end result is Codebreakers– an intelligent and hilarious romp through the world of cipher cracking and mathematical espionage.

The film stars Sam and his friend Josh, and includes a brief montage of nostalgic and awesome music.

I really enjoy Sam’s work here- its clever, its funny, with a lot of heart behind it. Sam is going to be an amazing teacher if he keeps up with the edutainment! While the pacing is a bit rough and the quality isn’t HD or anything, it is a solid first effort and shows just how much he’s learned working with me, Bob, Damien, Rob, and all the other guys at STRIKE A POSE!!! Films. We’re proud to feature his work on this site! Good Times Dude!

Congratulations: BISCUITS!

    Huh, next time I see sam I’ll say grats. The only flaws are ones with equipment, and a pacing issue. However, despite having mic pickup issues, and some framing, with some issues of careful editing to make the entire scene flow smoothly (yeah, this all sounds incredibly negative, but hear me out) the film shows accurately how difficult even an easy code was to break back in the 40’s, and that even today, experts trained to break codes still have incredible problems deciphering modern ciphers. Jeeze, I need to consult my thesaurus more.

    This is a lot different than I’d expect, and is a cool first film. Grats sam. Now I just need to get some camerawork down, and maybe I can get a shot at being the cameraman for a film. Directing might be something I’d try, but I’d rather have a good script. Actually, that’s one thing that seemed done right, that there were specific practiced lines for this film. Huh. Maybe that means we need to start having scripts for Dylan’s films then? Heh, jk man. Seriously though, awesome film, and I look forward to seeing everyone’s work. Maybe we can all hang out wendsday night, cause I’ll be done with work until monday. Till I see ya all again, later.

  • Entertaining and informative. Well done!
