Boat Safety begins not with oars, but with determination and courage. Each vessel, port and starboard, must be deemed seaworthy. Each sailor in aforementioned vessels employ must be judged by a court of the deep seas as being buoyant and intrepid. For every barnacle accounted, there must be a jib, pulley, and aft. When the nigh winds howl at ye wooden leg, a boat safety expert must welome them not with merely a grimace, but a defiant scowl, your good eye glistening with the grit of the anticipation of battle. To safely maneuver a boat from one channel to another strait, from these waters to those shores, from bay to bight to tomorrow’s evanescent anchorage, a true practitioner of boat safety must muster an unparalleled depth of knowledge of all things life preserver, choke, and mast. Unto each sail, may ye flap in safe waters, and unto each mooring may ye sway in safe harbor, for where the creed of boat safety travels, thereunto all men shall be safe boating.
Among the multitudes of shoots I’ve done, this one in particular stands out as possibly one of the most fun times on set…ever.
With direction from Dan Opsal and funny language from Mike DiCenzo, Justin and Jimmy drip with pure comedy juice. The only thing funnier than watching the cut of this skit was actually being there to see it behind the camera. And yes, the cookies were #delicious.
Last month I had the pleasure of operating camera for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s Breaking Bad spoof: Joking Bad. Shot over a period of several weeks, this epic goof was a true pleasure to work on.
Written by Dan Opsal and Mike DiCenzo, and directed by Dan Opsal, Joking Bad pays serious attention to sets and costumes in creating a side-splittingly accurate comedy-world depiction of Fallon’s Walter White. Keep an eye out for the real Breaking Bad cast cameos!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting another skit for the Late Show with Jimmy Fallon. This time the Jonas Brothers were on, and I operated one of the three cameras.
Written by John Haskell and directed by Danny Opsal (whose latest series Sugarboy might be one of the funniest things since comedic sliced bread), the day was a joy. An icing on the cake, AD Miles plays stepdad Gary
