We came up with the idea for this sketch in 2004, filmed it in Summer of 2013, and released it in 2014. Are you guys getting sick of hearing how long ago we keep ideas and/or edit? Heh.
We have a sketch coming up called “RPG” that we filmed Summer 2012 that has been sitting in our editing queue because it has a ton of green screen and honestly it scares me. If you watch the video above you’ll see we still haven’t quite nailed green screen stuff. Ah well, if any bigtime Hollywood producers are reading this and want to give us a ton of money we will re-shoot all our videos and try way harder.
Two new videos in two weeks and the’re not “We’re Back” videos! We filmed this one last fall, right after Disney announced they bought the Star Wars franchise, and we didn’t get around to releasing it until now - if you think that’s long wait until we release the video we shot in Summer 2012!
If you’ve been watching TrueNuff.tv regularly you’ll know that we’ve done three of these Writing Room sketches. We currently do not have any plans for new ones but if we do another we’ll have to tweak our process as these sketches, while fun to shoot, are a huge pain in the ass to edit. Part of the problem with Writing Room sketches is we start these with no script with only a very loose idea of how to end them. We usually end up with half hour to an hour of footage and then need to edit it down and since it’s video we have to watch the whole thing, cut it down, watch it again, cut it down, etc. I like the organic result but I don’t think the videos are up there with our best work. So if we do end up doing another Writing Room we’re going to make an effort to tighten the dialog and possibly have a cohesive plan before we start - we’ll see.
Either way, we had fun making them and free content is free content - hehehe.
