Making Stew with Movies

There's something to be said for jumping into a minivan with a few friends, a camera, microphone, boom pole, some snacks, a crazy idea and driving to a graveyard. After some rolling in the dirt, chasing around tombstones, dodging ant piles, trying not to get kicked out and getting a slight sunburn, you have an hour of footage and a possible, silly, silly, silly short film. It's like making a stew without a recipe. Just throw in whatever you have lying around the house and see what you get. And having a super fun time in the process. Moviemaking = fun.

In playing along with Ben's idea of google searches. I put "fun filmmaking" into google image search and the Monster's Inc sketch was the first thing to come up.

That was a blast this weekend. It was the most fun I have had in a cemetery... ever. Leslie fights dirty.
