Sorry guys. I would have had this up a couple days ago but i have been fighting my dumb computer. No idea if it is finally fixed, but it appears to be working pretty well right now. As a side note, Vista, not all that bad. I am kinda digging it. But that is neither here nor there. Lets get down to the video.

So this was a video that I knew from the get go would be a bitch to get done in one night. So many costumes!!! But amazingly we got this sucker shot in just under 5 hours. We were a little late to start (sorry Laura) but we managed to blast through the scenes with her and at least get her out of there at a resonable hour of the evening. After she took off we started into shooting, well, everything else basically. We did the whole shoot up at our favorite “unlocked school at all hours of the day” UVIC. I honesly don’t know what we would do if it wasn’t for that place. God bless you UVIC.

So in general it was a pretty straight forward shoot. We had 2 small hiccups. Number one being we were unable to find the grey mustache that we have and had to settle for the brown one. Luckily someone thought to dunk the thing in chalk to give it some grey. And luckily it turned out extremely well. The second hiccup was more of a inconvience that anything. We have recently bought a battery for the camera, a big one at that. However after a couple uses (or maybe even just one use) it didn’t seem to want to work anymore. So we were forced to use the one other battery we have which, of course, decided to kick the bucket @ around 10:30. SO LAME. So we went and grabbed some dinner and then continued on. We finally got the thing finished up just before midnight and were able to go home and get to sleep.



  1. James, you make an excellent pirate/cowboy.

  5. Citin, if you want to see a window into Graham’s future, I suggest watching the Season 4 finale and Pimp My Chair Again.

    Seriously, it’s only a matter of time ;).

  7. @corncob: Why not two cameras? Having multiple angles is great for editing.

  8. One camera is for shooting, the other is set dressing.
    Watch, it’s in the video. They’re using to film the auditions.

    People do that, right?
