This short was shot back when the “New iPad” came out, and well, what a confusing name! Seriously, nobody calls it the “New iPad”.

SOME WORK ON

Couple Seconders Ep.5, “the Promise of Dreams”. 

The fifth episode we worked on was most definitely the most challenging Couple Seconders we have done yet. On both the production side, and the post production side things were mucho challenging. 

Filming it, we had to have everything set up for it to work in post. Timing the dialogue with two separate clips (due to the *kind of a spoiler* ghost effect) was pretty hard. We actually ran into a problem with the clip timing, and had to pull a few strings in post. Rocco did a good job of patching it up… though the mistake is still quite obvious.

Rocco took care of post production vfx, and I did most of the color grading/correction. A really fun time, even though we ran into a few hiccups. This is our first time going so far into the effect, so we gave it our best shot. Ideally, it would be best to shoot with a green screen. Obviously that not being at our disposition, we had to do it all the manual way. 

Couple Seconders is landing pretty soon at youtube.com/thebtyp so stay tuned! 

Couple Seconders is something you might call a series. Essentially, every episode is different, and none of them have anything in common. Except that all of them are random and around the one minute mark [ in duration ]. 
Rocco and I wanted to have something that we could screw around with, something we could mold. The Couple Seconders idea allows us to create a story that’s only a few seconds, but still speaks a lot. 
With no running storyline, there is no necessary commitment, though Rocco and I are producing many of these. These let our creative juices leak, and that is what we were looking for when we came up with Couple Seconders. 
We finished a third part… I want many more (maybe 5 more) till we actually release this stuff, but we will see. So stay tuned to our Youtube, Twitter and Facebook.

Awkward Gym Teacher Ep.2 - Video and Commentary

For those who don’t follow me (or BTYP) on any other sources - or know - Awkward Gym Teacher is comedy mini-series created by BTYP.

Day 2 working on Awkward Gym Teacher had a startling surprise at the beginning……… the desk you saw in Ep.1 is not the same as the one in Ep.3. Keith explains a funny reason connecting to the Ep.2 storyline in Ep.3 but in truth there is a real reason.

So we came in the next day and discovered that the desk we used for Ep.1 was GONE. The janitors cleaning the school put it back into its original place, unaccesable to us.

We could not find a replacement for the desk, so the only logical way to keep the series going was to get the gym teacher to sub, and yes, sub health. In real life school, health class jokes were the best comedy around. We put in some of the jokes that we still remember, and obviously keeping the elusive Candace in the storyline.

Awesome time making Episode 2, even though we thought we were doomed in the morning!

ENJOY

Awkward Gym Teacher Ep.1 - Video and Commentary 

Right off, Ep.1 came out on July 20th so sorry everyone, I just had the time to post it now.

For those who don’t follow me (or BTYP) on any other sources - or know - Awkward Gym Teacher is comedy mini-series created by BTYP. 

It all started while being on assignment for Union Ridge School, and stumbling on a desk in the school gym. That all evolved (the same day) into the video above. I basically dragged the desk a bit more into the gym, turned to Keith (main actor, BTYP co-founder), and said, “Hey lets make a video!” 

Keith’s acting was all improv throughout the mini series, which I applaud greatly. Later, after filming the first episode, I realized that without a series or something along the lines of one, the story was too short and uneventful. The next two days bore fruit to the next 3 episodes.

It was GREAT fun, I would laugh so hard sometimes that we had to take 2 or 3 or 4 other takes. Great fun to create and direct this. 

ENJOY
