Let's make some funny videos and post them online. Hello, my name is Wes and I'm looking to put some like minded people together to produce short comical videos to post online. My role in this would be that of the organizer/creative director. A Lorne Michaels type figure, if you will, who leads with an iron fist and has final say in what goes out online in our name. I may have to crush your dreams at some point but you want that person to be me because I will crush your dreams in the kindest and most compassionate way possible. I will creep into your dreams room at night and peacefully euthanize it with carbon monoxide while it sleeps. I'm very fair and want everyone to get a chance to perform or write or take part in any way they want.

Where will this take place? - Ideally, we would meet up somewhere in the West Houston area not too far from a highway. The Kendall Neighborhood Library near I-10 is a new state of the art library with plenty of meeting spaces. Many Houston libraries have meeting rooms for groups. If anyone knows of a good space or has access to one, that would be great. We could always squat in an abandoned store front or defunct restaurant :)

Who is welcome?- Anyone over 18 is welcome to join. If you have delicate sensibilities, this probably will not be the group for you. There will be a lot of R rated humor. There will not be many topics off limits. So, if jokes about politics or religion that may or may not be sexually explicit offend you, then you will not have fun. I want everyone to have a good time so please know your limits.

Who and what do we need?- We need creative funny people maybe with some nice toys they are willing to share. More specifically...

Writers

Performers

Camera people (Got a DSLR? Those work great for our purposes.)

Sound people

Lighting people

Video editors

Makeup people (both regular and special effects)

Prop/wardrobe/costume people

If all we have to start with is an Iphone camera, a laptop, a cheap boom mic, and some lights from home depot , then that's what we will use to get the job done.

Will anyone get paid? Hell no! You slaves...... I mean generous volunteers...will do this for the fun and the love of it. You might get some practice or exposure though. All the videos that make the cut will be put up on youtube free to the world to watch and enjoy. If by some miracle they became popular, maybe we could roll this into some sort of business but lets just assume that will never happen. Having a good time is what is most important.

Do I, your fearless organizer, have any experience doing this? - No, no I don't. But you don't have to either! If anybody has any expertise they are willing to chip in that would be great but it isn't required.

Here are a few example ideas for sketches that I think might be funny-

-Support group for people cursed by mythical creatures

-Fake commercial for a product called glory hole liners. They have liners for toilet seats. Why not glory holes?

-Someone walks in on superman mid speed change pulling half a cape out of his acehole. Where did you think he kept it when he was in Clark Kent mode?

-Terrorists need access to a secret government facility so they kidnap the family of the man in charge. There is only one problem. This man HATES his family. A man who hates his family is a kidnappers worst nightmare.
