if there was ever a Trinitrons to do on
would be that character. For reasons
I can't really get into right now,
the Dewey shoot was like pulling teeth. I
wanted absolutely nothing to do with it.
While the camera was rolling, I was
fine, but the second the take was over -
bam. Done. Dead. Completely out of it.
Even messed up some takes because my mind
wasn't in the right place. All completely
unlike me in every possible way.
The set has
something to do with that though. When you're shooting
in your house, by yourself, there's very little to "be
up" for if you're in a bummed out mood. You literally
only have to be "on" when the camera rolls. That
I was. Here's the pics:
funny to Dewey Anderson...
getting shocked by Adam's new censor
they're forced to read? Laugh.
it isn't always funny. Jesus I look miserable
Of course that was
Sunday. Two days before that was the shoot for the
"other" Deweys and that was indeed a good time.
Amazingly everyone showed up and we all had a blast.
Nothing like a room full of Dewey's to get the party
started. Very surreal to say the least. The winner of
"Who gets to be Dewey for a Night" was Mr. Chad
you're in my space man - GET!
There was no
reaching for Mr. Cunningham. He had it from the first
take and was a pro throughout. It wasn't the easiest
of choices though, as several of the guys were really
funny, but Chad was the perfect match in the end.
Luckily I was able to use two other guys in the
show as part of the "audition" process that Live
Adam has, so that's cool.
As well, I played
Tony Hawk with the two Dewey's I used for the audition
process and it turned out really funny. It'll
definitely be an extra on the DVD. Very funny moments.
I may even go back and do Cameron and his brother
Mikey doing some sort of videogame thing.
The actual day of
shooting for Dewey went very smooth. Did nearly every
scene in one take, and although I did seconds in
case, I just ended up using the first. Dewey certainly
has some funny moments, but honestly - it's the story
and how the audience is taken through it that stands
out in this final show much more than individual
Jesus there has to
be more to say here. Lemme see what I wrote on
the last two shows...
...ahh yes - the
"how I feel about the project up to this
point" part of the entry. So impossible to write
about now. I mean, technically - looking over the
footage...it's very, very good. It's gonna be a KILLER
30 minute show. I mean, there's just so many
great little things in it. Emotionally, I just
want it to be over. I'm now having trouble with
craigslist.com not accepting my posting because I'm
not offering money. For some reason it wasn't a
problem with the Dewey posting but now it is. ?!?! So
what was originally going to be a final shoot this
Saturday with Spencer and the actress playing the
replacement, is now completely up in the air. (sigh).
I'm just done. Just basically ready for this to be in
the can and I can start working on the
post-production stuff. To say I'm looking forward to
the premiere and DVD release party in Columbus is
an understatement. It's just that for the first time,
all the weeks/months of work that it's going to take
just isn't really pumpin' me up.
another day. Let's hope I can get a suitable
Spencer replacement as the first 3 TVs have been
PERFECT!!!! Thank you Chad!
