Holy crap that set is RAD!

You guys are seriously on your way to being professionals, heck I'd go so far to say that you're better than some professionals out there today!

Be careful with the word professional. If they stop making videos because they start doing professional work, some of us might have to do less interesting things for a change, like getting stuff done instead of spending time watching funny videos.

So the colors behind the panels are just tshirts? I thought it was some kind of fancy lighting...

Now some of the things that were said during that AAAL make more sense.

That logo, I need to say, is so impressive that I thought you guys got that thing shipped to you or custom-made by someone. Ben should be very proud.

Of course, we wanna see that ISC. Must see what they were doing with all those lemons. I'll bet they were chewing on the seeds!!

Morgan's underpants are rather admirable, if I do say so.

By the way, the set looks awesome!

That was really cool. Very ingenious, I have to say, to use fluorescent diffusion panels and t-shirts to get that background. Up 'til now I just kept assuming that you'd just green-screened a background in. But that was way cooler, and way smarter. And a badass job by Ben!

Also, stop teasing us with these ISCs that we'll never see! :P

PS Nice shorts, Morgan!

A shame the logo isn't really...visible in ENN, but good on Ben for making it regardless!

I wanna say you guys MacGuyver'd that set, but that's sounds negative, so I'll say you guys did a really good job for what you used for the set.

I love how Morgan was going on about hiding behind the panels of the wall trouserless and just chilling out without anyone knowing.

This must now become reality within an episode.

Pro tip: If you glue clothing pattern paper or even newspaper to Styrofoam before painting it, even the most evil spray paint won't make it melt.

basically one part white glue to two parts water, and a brush, and cut the newspaper into strips like paper mache, but smaller.

but otherwise impressed.

Yeah I noticed that too, it's a nice change but it threw me for a momentary loop trying to remember who that was.

My thought process in reference:

"Is that Morgan? Wait, that can't be Morgan his hair is wrong it's some guy I don't know. That guy sounds kind of like Morgan. Is that MORGAN!? THAT'S MORGAN!!"

Morgan.

Great vid, guys. I always love the behind-the-scenes, just because you guys are so rad to hang out with, even if it's only via cam.

Professional set work! And it really looks slick with t-shirts of all one color... what's really cool is you can easily swap them out for a palette change. If you ever need to do emergency Escapist News Network (EENN!) you could just change all the shirts to red and have a red spot fill and VOILA. Panic room!

Oh Morgan! Always on the lookout for the optimal place to go trouserless. I like Morgan's new hair. Don't tell his old hair I said that. It might get mad and stab me.

And who the heck doesn't like jam?! I'd eat that stuff out of a jar with a spoon.

New hair as in this video or new hair as in the "Scribbles" video?

If this video, I agree.

Morgan's hair is like the main character's of that game Bayonetta.
Meaning that:
a) It'll turn into a dragon and eat you.
b) It's responsible for those absurd shorts of his.

addon to Keen's comment:

I think my sister used polyurethane or some other clear coat on styro before she painted it, and it didn't melt. Nifty idea though, glueing paper on first.

Rad set! The t-shirts were mighty clever, I'm impressed. I assumed the whole backdrop was greenscreened.
