Pandaman

I was able to get out and redo the shots for #41 Saturday, as well as get a few that I didn't think of getting until then. It should be a quick edit, so expect it around the middle of the week.

Joseph was in Florida for the pretend rapture his birthday. I kind of forgot he was doing that. Luckily, Tim was a little angel and helped out with the shoot. Then he made me a contact microphone from scratch just because he wanted to. Having an excuse to use his soldering iron probably had something to do with it. I documented its creation for no distinct reason:


(He found out the people that work at Radio Shack don't really know what you're talking about when you ask for something that isn't a cell phone.)




Once we got it working, which involved hastily wrapping it in electrical tape to cancel out vibrations in its casing, it gave some pretty great sounds. Putting it against Tim's face while he ate sunflower seeds was a little disturbing to hear, though.

Then we played this. It was hilarious:

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU HEAD

It was also really stupid.

  6. I asked a RadioShack if they had any microphones that would work for voice overs... they directed me towards cell phones.

  7. Out of curiosity, how did you come up with the name 'Jay'? If it gives anything away, don't bother saying why, just say something along the lines of 'classified' so I know you read this. ^^'

  10. I'm curious as to who this "big cheese" person is that you talk about when needing to re-shoot things. Do you guys work for someone? I thought it was all something you just did for fun, by yourselves.....

  11. @Courtney: I think they're referring to their producer, Kirill Baru.

    Tim is clearly the ultimate muscle. (And a soldering god?)
