More Comedy

One good thing about being in LA is that it allowed us to get together with Barlow, edit our Dirty Britches promo and show it to our agents and other pertinent folks.

Editing this piece wasn't exactly a laugh riot. Within about an hour or two of cutting the footage together, I lost my hold on the humor of it all, and had to proceed based solely on a theoretical understanding of what can, technically, be funny.

Thankfully, we learned one very important lesson in the process: flatulence is still hilarious. Just when I was about to throw up my hands and commit myself fully to melodrama, I decided to add a well-timed sound effect - a grace note which saved the day for this old fuddy-duddy of a filmmaker.
