A TRAILER (2010):
I felt like doing a new written commentary for this one. The cringe is real with this one. It probably wouldn't be cool of me to pin it all on David, but I'm gonna do that anyway. Very sterile, very lame. But it has a tiny bit of charm to me. As you can read in the 2011 commentary, we totally improvised this. Some of the gags are kinda funny. But some of the others are pretty lame. I'm glad we got better later on...
This was a very fun day. This is when I was having a lot of trouble getting videos out.
So how did we get to doing this short specifically? Well, I felt bad having David come in to do the series "Renegade" (an action show we were making at the time) even though he hated it. So I told him every time we do a new Renegade film day, I would make sure we did a comedy sketch. This was just one of the many ideas he had pitched to me, that we could still remember.
I was actually sort of surprised that he held on to this idea long enough for us to do it. He was considering taking it to our other friends who do movies. But we felt as if this was more up our alley anyway.
This is one of the main reasons I miss working with David, sure he screws around, but he is one of the funniest guys I know. It's sort of rare when David approaches me with an idea, I think he's sort of afraid I'll shoot it down instantly when that really isn't my intent.
