Our friend Reggie Watts stopped by the studio in September to create some PSAs about a very serious issue: LIFE. From greek desserts to the principles of America (even the vice-principals), Reggie Watts shows you how to navigate the ups and downs of that roller coaster we all ride. What is the secret to love? What’s the proper way to interpret the “box of chocolates” metaphor? How does one face death? And why is Barbra Streisand crucial to it all? As Reggie reminds us, Life… it just keep happening.
We shot Reggie with two Canon C300 Mark 2’s, one tripod, a shoulder mount, a lav microphone, and no script. We ran around our stage following Reggie and his extemporaneous mind as he filled our space with creativity and wonder. He fiddled with our Russian G suits, spun magic onto our green screens, and unzipped several bags. And we got it all on tape.
Our small crew included Steven Calcote directing, Luis Reyes producing, Lillian Diaz-Przybyl and Griffin Davis running sound, and Travis Stevens and Jason Milligan operating cameras. By the end of it, we had 10 PSAs that could help anyone who is stuck in the mud of the mysteries of life.
