The Fiction River Video
I know a lot of you won’t go to the Fiction River Kickstarter site, and many of you who do won’t watch the video. I’ve watched a ton of Kickstarter videos and they’re usually…well, not worth watching. Ours is. But it almost wasn’t because of me & Dean. The problem? Well, I got trained in broadcasting, and worked in radio for a long time. But watching me read a script–watching me–is like watching the PBS radio announcers show up for a PBS-TV fundraiser. We radio people don’t know where the cameras are or how doofy our eyes look when we move them around. Or maybe I should say “shifty.” We always look like we’re trying to get away with something.
Dean is a great interview. But only if he’s actually interviewed. And we lost our interviewer to life events. So we tried to go with the script I wrote as a guideline for the interview. Big mistake. Faced with that mistake and a limited amount of time, we had to cobble something together. So, honestly, we used the outtakes. They’re much more interesting than two writers trying to handle a script. So give it a watch. People find it funny. Thank heavens.
Well, you might’ve felt silly doing it, but you came away with a **great** product at the end. Full marks to both of you.
That was great! Hilarious and sweet. I think this was a lot more fun this way.
I feel like I just watched outtakes from “When Harry Met Sally.” 🙂
LOL You and Dean are too freaking cute!
That was entertaining. LOL
LOL! Good call posting this, it was great. 🙂
“…Dean Wesley Smith (which is me)…”
The outtakes are the best part of the video. If you’d done this seriously…I can’t imagine. This is your personalities and your relationship, perfectly depicted!
