What the Sketchies!?

March 10, 2008


So I haven’t heard anything yet. People been asking me “Hey what’s up with the Sketchies 2 contest on youtube, you heard yet?”

Well the answer is No, nothing I’ve heard nothing at all. With one exception. Some guys who also have an entry posted left a comment on their own video saying they didn’t make it and they know this because one of their friends (also in the contest) already received word that he made it.

I’ve heard nothing. I know a few people in the contest and haven’t heard anything from them.

So that’s it. Whatever that is. I’m still hopeful, make things are just slow.

If you haven’t already seen it, my entry is here

Sketchies 2 : The Wild Thing

Spread the word!

This was probably the fastest and best thing I’ve done to dat. I basically took a back seat on this. My Co-Star Brian wrote, directed and edited while I worked on casting, producing and now promoting the video.

Anyway, I was going to talk about stuff but it took me forever to get this video up. Youtube was being beyond pesky this time around. So now I just want to chill. Maybe I’ll post more about it later. Enjoy. And remember to vote March 13th!

Sketchies 2

March 2, 2008

Production Banner

Thursday we cast the last of our characters and this morning we shot. 3 pages of material. Not an over bearable shot list for a one day shoot. We managed to pull it off in about 3 hours. The boys are back at their place editing their little hearts out (I hope) and by Monday we’ll have this little bastard online.

There will be an extended version, but for the Sketchies contest we’re whittling down the the vision to under 3 minutes.

Here’s Sketchies 2 behind the Scenes:

I have to say I’m apprehensive. Brian is off editing right now, and I’m almost scared to see what comes of it. This time I kind of focussed on just acting and some production aspects. Brian wrote and directed this, with a few notes from me. I meant to be a little more producerly, but also I just wanted to get it done and we kept the shoot moving right along. So I had no complaints.

The day basically went off without a hitch. The one large exception being the weather. we expected the sun to come out, and held off shooting till 10 when we gave up and just hoped everything stayed consistent. Which it did. But I fear this means everything will be too dark.

Either way I think this short is going to be pretty awesome, even beyond being part of sketchies. It should catch some fans I think. And we’re going to cut a longer version eventually, since Sketchies maxes out at 3 minutes. So keep an eye on my youtube channel SamProof cause ‘The Wild Thing’ will be up Monday.
