Just like Robert Downey Jr., I was giddy with joy when I was able to round up a few people on my dorm floor that wanted to be in my next video!! As I continue along the path of a collaboration/guest star route, the videos are gaining a fresh vibe to them so you don't know what to expect and from who! While I am a fan of character development (mainly for the "Sketch Comedy" series), it's fun to just let loose and explore more plot-based style videos. It gives me a chance to do more jokes with as little stretch as possible, haha! With that being said, let's talk about the newest video to call home here on the site! I've been living in the University Village Suites since August of 2009. 3rd Floor, to be exact. That's an inside joke (well not really). Also, that's a spiffy name for a blog post, which is mainly why I just wrote that, teehee. Since my roommate, Victor, lives with me, he obviously knows a little bit about what I do here, and ever since college started he's shown interest of making a video with me! It's a shame that it has taken this long to finally make a video, but it's finally happened! I contacted some people on my floor via facebook and gave them the opportunity to collaborate on a video for the site. You know, I guess I could have just walked to their door and asked them personally... HAHA! Well actually, it was quite difficult to get a hold of these people, ironically enough! Nevertheless once I recieved an overwhelmingly positive response, I went ahead and wrote out the lines for everyone in the video... yes... that's right. I WROTE A SCRIPT. JEFFREY VEGA HAD A SCRIPT PREPARED. SOUND THE ALARMS!
The video is about me going around, asking people what they think of this website... and well, let's just say things don't go so well for me. HOWEVER, in reality, things went VERY well, filming wise. We're all so busy during the day, all the filming took place literally at 1 in the morning... not exactly the most practical time to film, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, right?! I was so excited once everything was finished with all the guest stars, thanks to one of my closest friends Onelia for helping to film and putting up with my pickiness! (: The one thing that brought me down during editing was... well, the whole process. I planned to film 2 scenes for every person I worked with, and I would seperate the clips throughout the video with the other people so it had the effect of like going back to that person as if we never stopped talking. I was bummed to find out, however, when putting all the footage together that the video would be close to 15 minutes. OUCH. You could probably guess how hard it was to cut some things out... so many funny things will never see the light of day, and even after the difficult editing decisions, the video is still a lengthy one at right under 6 minutes, but at least I was able to get everyone who was filmed into the video! I've watched some people watch the video and they say the time passes by so quickly because the video is actually entertaining and doesn't drag on... yay! So, why don't you tell me what YOU think, hmm? (;
