Shooting Idiots




After a few months of inactivity, the cast and crew of Those Funky Idiots came together this past Sunday to film a very short episode entitled "The Neighbor". The cast included Tim Richardson (Vinnie Tuscany), Brad Quinton (The Neighbor), and myself as the affable Arlo Wazzo. Chuck Williams and Carol Richardson also made a cameo as The Moochers. Behind the camera, Tim also directed while Eric Whetsel was our lovable boom. As with most of our Idiots productions, principal photography took place at Thornburg International Studios (a.k.a. Grandma's garage).

Despite a late start due to a slight scare (Grandma was missing! What do we do?! Who should we call?! Oh, she's with Aunt Linda and Uncle Jerry...Never mind), we quickly filmed the entire episode in record time. Of course, the script was only four pages long so there really wasn't a lot to film. However, we all felt slightly exhausted when we called it a wrap.

Filming our little public access show is always a joy to me. I wish we could do an episode every week! Sadly that isn't possible, but a fat cartoonist can dream.
