CAR-JUMPER - Episode 6
Got to make another episode of a show called “Car-Jumper” - Got voted back and get to make another episode of a show called “Car-Jumper” —
This is getting ridiculous.
Sean and I shot most of this, and I also managed to cameo as the stunt double for the stunt double of a little boy in a trailer.
Yeah! Tonight at the Downtown Independent. 8:00pm or 10:00pm. Free. Incredible.
This is one of the three fantastic shows I either shot, cameoed in, or both. It’s fun to do things for a big ole’ movie-screen.
Paper for iPad is great for storyboarding. Drawing these things on
paper dead trees, scanning them and sticking them to a script was always a pain in the ass. With Paper, I draw them up anywhere, and email/MMS them to relevant parties for immediate viewing, feedback, and changes.
This was a scene from the latest episode of Car Jumper.
Cordyceps: The Show (Failed Channel 101 Pilot)
What do you do when you spend two months making something like the Courier Program and it doesn’t make prime time, and there’s only one more screening left for the year? You get some very talented friends together on a Monday afternoon, you have fun, and spend no more than one day making something. And you do it all in one take so you don’t really have to edit it.
I would also like to nominate Dave Seger for Best Cordyceps Victim. He was even better than the ant. #Channies2012
Kind of a weird year for me at Channel 101. Nothing I did seemed to click with the audience. Which is fine. I’m not the type of person that takes this sort of thing lying down and I know I’ll bounce back with another Sequence next year. But maybe, as a newer crop of talent comes in, Channel 101’s role in my life is just changing and vice-versa. Which is great. Life is supposed to be full of change. Hopefully for the better.
I shot two no-cut videos last week, and this one might be my favorite.
I can’t wait for the bus scenes!
I shot everything except the bus scenes, but I promise you that they’re incredible.
Dog was the highlight of my Saturday night.
While introducing the October ‘11 Channel 101 screening, Dan Harmon said there were about five really innovative things going on that night. He was right, all ten shows were fantastic, and about half of them absolutey blew my mind. I was lucky enough to do camera work for…
Thanks for the kind words. I was really bummed that I already had something lined up for the weekend of Switcher, but I think the hand-held technique pulled off the POV look way better than the Glidecam would have. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
Shooting Sex Teenagers Live was a great time. Between rehearsals, setting up equipment, and the actual shoot, I lost track of how many times I had to run up the stairs (fifteen stairs from the first landing—I started counting them after I almost ate shit during the tech rehearsal) wearing my full rig in under 20 seconds. I’m really proud that we all pulled it off, and that I can add one of my favorite shows to my 101 resume.
For the uninitiated, go to channel101.com and start clicking around. This is a ridiculous, incredible group of people who like to make things. Finding a crowd like this is exactly why I moved to LA in the first place, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
STRANGE CASES - Episode 2
I flew the Glidecam on this one, and it was a great time. It’s always good to have a werewolf on your reel.
It was incredible to see this without 2006-quality internet compression.
I now own every DVD I ever need to own.
