Week 22: Classic
(For a better viewing experience click on the HQ button once the video starts. Everything is more fun in full-screen mode…)
[First off, humongous thanks to Petur Magnusson, and to my brother Matt. Both did a lot of camera work, and both were stellar on-screen as well. Very much appreciated. Huge thank you also to The Pacific Pinball Museum / Lucky Juju Pinball. That place is AMAZING, and they're a non-profit, so give them some love.]
Simply put, I am too, too tired to write anything sensical right now (is “sensical” even a word without its “non”? Spell-check doesn’t think so). I did however write a fairly long blog-entry yesterday called Letting Go of “Acting School Mentality”, which may be an interesting read for some of you (or not).
A couple of quick things:
-Matt and Petur were both champs, and there’s no way I could have pulled this episode off without their help. We had a pretty good time shooting. Playing horse was way too much fun. Neither of them are trained actors, but they’re both very funny guys. Petur has the best deadpan of anyone I know.
-This episode was all improvised.
-This may have been the toughest edit I’ve had yet. I have no idea how many hours it took me. Fifteen? More? Dunno. All I know is that I’m taking a break from documentary style (again). They’re fun to shoot, but I always end up hating myself in the editing process. No mas! Not for a while. If you’re interested below is what my timeline ended up looking like.
Too. Many. Edits. (and don’t get me started on the audio)
Okay. Good night (a.k.a. good morning).
