Week #8 The Roast Geoff and the Ninja

This week ComedyCoup asked us all to be a buncha jerks! So hopefully we lived up to their expectations. Maybe we even took a little shot at ComedyCoup while we were at it ;) Only one way to find out!

Here is a group shot from the shoot. Just missing a bike cop...think he was in the lunch room eating all the donuts. The guys we had playing Charlie and Yoni were in character for most of the shoot. Imagine trying to act when your sound guys is dressed in drag the whole time.

Stunt double

Stunt double

As I'm sure most of you know by now we have to film all of the Ninja scenes in a separate city and splice Jeremy into the scenes we filmed here in Prince George. This week we had about three different people dressing up as the Ninja to fill in. We tried to minimize our keying so we could focus more energy on some of the effects and what not when the time came.

Here is the #2 super fan suiting up to be The Ninja double. If you play close attention you might even hear the voice of the #1 super fan on the phone.

Here you can see Jon and Dan running the dolly, if you look around you can see pretty much everything we us on set is built by hand other then the camera. Jon built the dolly using plywood, PVC pipe and skateboard wheels, and the Light in the top left of the screen is another design that we used to build three other lights. We have used these lights in every shoot we have done so far.

Super impressed with the costumes these two put together last minute. Looks like just about anyone can be a bike cop. HA!! but seriously they made the costumes like an hour before we started shooting.

    This is brilliant. It is nothing short of tragic that you guys didn't advance.

    Casey, the saddest part for me is knowing I won't get to see your Hulk avatar anymore.

    That's a lie. But it still makes me pretty sad. Thanks dude!

    Thanks Robbie! The Wharf Rats joke was my personal favourite haha glad you got a kick out of it. I'll be up in Whistler for the big event so maybe we'll get the chance to talk about nothing for 90 or more seconds!

    There were some pretty clever and humorous roasts, & yours was TOPS!! You should definitely keep going with pitching your ideas. Even though you guys aren't "professionals" on the film scene, your team's output is pro quality, and better still...fresh in the idea department! Also, I think your fans really appreciate that they can always pick up the theme/ or storyline from one video to the next. Continuum is never going out of style...unless books & movies do. No way!

    haha thanks mom. Glad you liked it so much. We've got one big video to finish this weekend and there's still a chance ComedyCoup will option us for future potential so we're far from finished yet.

    Just wanted to say hope Geoff has had a rest as Ninjas don't sleep. And wishing you all the best in the future! Try pitching to SciFi network, this could fly in new forms there!

    I am so sorry that you didn't get into the final 5. You were sooooo much better than some that made it there. Enjoyed your last project and I have my finger crossed for a continued future with this show for you all.

    He was a trooper! Uberfan through-and-through. We like to think of our C&Y tribute as a train wreck, it's so awful but you just can't look away ;) Thanks Justine!

    You guys did an awesome job at the roast! I loved how the Charlie and Yoni slow motion... so funny... I also liked how you did the whole roast in the setting of your show and even roasted yourselves at the end as well as comedycoup! I can't believe how awesome it looks having to do all Ninja's parts via green screen, you can't even tell! So sad you guys aren't in the Top 5, but I know you will carry on and get this done one way or another! ;)

    First video I watch from the roasts. This is so good! I don't think I even have to watch another but I will but I don't think they'll be nearly as good. - Shirts

    Such a funny roast! Even Sheldon makes an appearance!

    You folks were the underdog in the top 15, but you belong amongst the best here, just look at all of your awesome entries from previous weeks! Until next time gentlemen...
