Thought you’d all enjoy another round of behind-the-scenes photos. I snapped most of these during shooting for our last couple videos.
‘Skeeterpellant was a pretty quick shoot, once Paul helped Matt set up his 5-man tent. We put the dolly track riding up to, and into, the tent for a nice opening shot, and then I just pretty much talked. Had to shave my beard off too, and it’s almost come back, thankfully. Jer did a great job on the ‘Skeeterpellant label, which features a warning against Shreiking Explosive Diarrhea… seems like radiation is an easy out.
Stand-Up Guy was also a pretty straightforward shoot. I had been trying to figure out how to do the off-balcony-hurling, without resorting to a dummy, which always look fake. That’s fine in some cases, but we didn’t want that to be the joke. So I gave Matt the mission of stuffing my pants full of whatever he felt would work, which ended up being two pillows and a sleeping bag. Then he crouched behind Tim and flung the fake pants up at the right time for a smoooooth edit, if I say so myself. I can’t help it, I giggle every time I see it.
