My Parody of "24" (shot with XH-A1)

Hey all,

Instead of a normal weekly episode of my sitcom Buddy Jackson, we decided this week to do a parody of the show "24." Take a look and let me know what you think:

http://www.buddyjackson.com/

This was shot using two Canon XH-A1 cameras. Kevin Good was the DP, and he did a great job on it. He also did some pretty slick post. It was edited in FCP, with the motion graphics created in After Effects. We scored it together using CueBase (sp?).

All of our episodes starting with 14, "The Agony of Defeat," have been shot with the Canons. I really love them.

Thanks.

Thanks guys, I really glad you liked it. We had so much fun making it that I wasn't sure if it was just us who would like it or not :).

Great work and nice story/parody.

The lighting was very nice... and it looks like you pulled off a lot of setups with a small crew.

2- Nice job with Angst barbie too.

Awesome dialog, great lighting and set design... It was hilarious too! This is by far the first good 24 parody I've ever seen.

I loved it! The 3 hole punch, the urgency, and the guy playing Alamida, he phrased his words perfectly.

I'm a big 24 fan and even have a few parody clips too. I'm just doing this for fun, so it's just me and a cat named Jack (link below).

I'd be interested in the number countdown sequence you did, what program produced the digital number effect?

Thanks all for the great feedback... I'm really glad you like it.

Glen - yeah, I didn't count the setups, but it was pretty much all in one day. Our crew was me, a DP, a B cam op, a sound opp and two PAs. The complicating factor is that the DP (Kevin Good) is also the actor who finds himself at the business end of a stapler. I ran his cam for the segments he was in. It may seem like a tight scedule, but it was light for us... we only shot one episode that day whereas for regular episodes we always shoot two. Glad you liked Barbie too...

Cole - For lighting we had two Kino Diva lights (one filled with daylight bulbs, the other tungsten), a couple Arris, and a few random things thrown in. If you have a particular scene you'd like a diagram off I can probably recreate it, though I may have to ask Kevin.

Colin - the countdown was done in After Effects. I think there was a stock 7-segment display font used as a mask, but I never actually saw the timelines for that. The guy playing Almeida, Danny Rouhier, is a fabulously talented stand-up comic who is also a huge fan of "24." Once I saw his impression in rehearsal I had to add a couple more lines for him. I hadn't written that character to be Almeida, Danny just threw it in. I wish I could have captured for posterity the impression of Chloe O'Brian he did also, because it was probably even better. Your cat thing was fun :).
