  • Oh god, that was truly brilliant! The temptation of the cake is too great. 
    Would have liked to see an extended version, I'd like to see the showdown between Mabel and Nasty Bella! Sterling job Jean, so on the point of comedy timing.

  • Thanks for many great videos of Deaf culture, community and language. They are very handy for my Auslan students to watch them.

    Thanks again.

  • Hi,

    I have just viewed If I Don’t Lose, I’ll Lose by Jean St Clair starring Caroline Parker & found it an endearing, funny yet moving piece. It combined broad slapstick humour & naturalistic pathos which was a winning combination for me.

  • I really enjoyed the film - made me smile. Lovely performances from Caroline, Peter and the postman. Favourite moment - Caroline's hand sliding down the fridge in desperation when her time is up. Congratulations!

  • I enjoyed every minute. It was fun and witty. Ms. Jean St. Clair could have added another chapter. I wish the United States had a film trust for the Deaf.
    Congratulations.

  • That's fab short film, I like a best part is Mabel and her agent with the interpreter face to face and online that's brilliant and funny too.

    Well done Jean.

  • Well done Jean! I loved the film and I know just the feeling of trying to lose weight before any coming event whether it be Christmas, summer holiday to wear a bikini or going to a party. Keep making more films Jean, who knows you might get to walk on the Red Carpet and win an Oscar! Good luck Jean!
