Jim Dedman is not to be confused with videoblogger Jay Dedman, though the line between the two may have thinned now that Baylor Law grad Jim has taken to movie-making. Where his blog once resided is currently the website for his film Pleadings, complete with iPod downloadable trailer. (And what used to be the Pleadings website now appears to be squatter territory.)

I liked the Pleadings script, though I haven't seen the movie and the trailer looks like a mix of reality TV cinematography and Sundance style acting. As the movie is getting submitted to Robert Redford's baby, I suppose the latter aspect is appropriate. For those who'd like to see some big screen law drama that isn't a Grisham novel, look for Jim's.

CORRECTIONS: The official site is, and what I thought was squatter territory just hasn't yet been redirected there. The style might also be considered sort of Dogme 95, something I didn't get because a) I saw only the trailer and b) the sole Dogme film I saw was the first one, so it's always associated in my mind with well-made European depression.

We are going for well made American depression. ;)
