Inspired by the wave of First Kiss videos and parodies my friend Madison talked me in to this.
This was completely improvised and I’d never met my scene partner before.
I’m posting this little late in the game, this video was shot and uploaded a few weeks back and in itself was a response to the First Kiss videos that had been posted a month or two ago. But I’ve a renewed focus on updating this blog with insight and thus it’s something to talk about.
I first met Madison at Vidcon though my buddy MG Phenom and we just recently ran in to each other at the youtube space. So thanks to youtube you get me farting on screen. (little secret, it’s not real.. sorry I don’t fart on command… just when it’s really at an embarrassing time by accident.)
The great coincidence to this video is the night before Madison asked, Brock Baker had (seemingly ironically) left a facebook update that said something like “Go make a First Kiss parody video, the time is nigh!” to which I replied “I’m on it, First Shart coming right up”.
Maddy emailed me the next day and I figure ‘eh close enough’.
And thus I became a part of the first fart video. I drove about 25 minutes to a little sub urban home and met my scene partner Fran. We’d never met before, we had no rehearsed lines and very little direction. So the awkwardness you see between us, farts or not, is real.
I have to admit it’s been a long while since I’ve done much improv. My days at UCB feel very far away and I’m a little less comfortable doing it on the fly. But at the same time I feel a certain comfort just being in front of the camera of a youtube video. In a room full of strangers these people are all still my brethren. We’re cut from the same cloth and in that I take solace.
Now it’s probably not something that’s going in my acting reel, but at the same time I am proud of it no matter what it is. When it all comes down to it, it’s just about laughing at yourself and maybe bringing someone else along for the ride.http://www.samproof.tv/2014/04/20/farts/https://i2.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Generic-Header-Thumb-with-LOGO.png?fit=640%2C390https://i2.wp.com/www.samproof.tv/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Generic-Header-Thumb-with-LOGO.png?fit=150%2C91LifevideoActing,filmmaking,first fart,first kiss,Franchesca Amaya,improv,Madison Berrones,Nathan Wheeler,PhilaDehlia,youtubeInspired by the wave of First Kiss videos and parodies my friend Madison talked me in to this.
