new sketch “halftime”

Here’s my latest comedy sketch featuring Chris Burch, Torry Martin and Gunner Willis. 3 hilarious dudes in one video. My roommate Chris Burch brought this idea to me and after sitting in class, I started writing. After some sessions with Chris, this is what came to be. Hope you enjoy it.


Behind the scenes:

One thing that you may not know about this video is that the audio was recorded entirely on a rode mic. If you know anything about a rode mic, you know that you wouldn’t use it for your main source of audio. Well, long story short, the boom mic I was supposed to use was completely busted. We found out the morning of the shoot. We tried everything we could; a new ZoomH4N, SD cards, XLRs, and I even sweet-talked it… but it was broken. I had to make a decision. We had to shoot and the rode mic was all I had left. So my boom op, Ryan Hendrick did what he could in a really noisy environment. After putting on my doctor gloves, I went to surgery on the audio… it was bloody but there was a heartbeat. I also had Caleb Furrow help clean as well. After an open heart transplant, the audio was passable. Hopefully you didn’t know but I know some of you (film peeps) knew. Obviously, I know it’s not amazing but sometimes, you just gotta go with what you got.
