Behind-the-Scenes: Skeeterpellant & Stand-Up Guy
May 29th, 2009

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.


  1. James, you’re a stud.

  2. I love the can of repellant. The third warning sign is the best.

  3. Whose this Raymond fellow and why does Canada have all the hot guys? It just doesn’t seem fair.

  4. “So I gave Matt the mission of stuffing my pants full of whatever he felt would work…”

    I stopped reading right there.

  5. I especially like the pic of Ray with the boom. He looks like he’s ready hit someone with it if they get out of line.

  6. Have to say I like Matt’s Star Trek shirt. It is awesome!

  7. Matt looks great recording the podcast. Now if only we could actually hear it…

  9. Ditto what Mast Gunner said. I’ve totally got a new desktop background.
