The work has begun on the videos for Kidz Camp! I'm pretty excited about them this year, and I hope the kids will enjoy watching them as much as we'll enjoy putting them together. We have a total of ten videos to film, edit, and produce by the time the camp rolls around (Saturday, the 25th), five of those being the main story of the week, the other five being shorter, funny videos designed to grab the kids' attentions just before signing up for Third Activity (and I don't have time to explain the entire schedule, so believe me when I say the kids get extremely rowdy right around then).
The story for the main videos revolves around the character of Timothy Trips-A-Lot, who is hopelessly clumsy and hopes that getting his name legally changed will mark the beginning of a new life without as much tripping over himself. Along the way he meets many characters, all with weird legally changed names that have their own stories to tell. There's not really much of a moral to the story, but it's going to be fun, and that's really all that matters for the skits. The kids get plenty of good Bible-learnin' during the lesson times, anyway.
We (and by we, I mean Connor, my friend AJ and I) have already filmed two of the five short, funny videos, though I have yet to edit them, and we're really excited to show those to people. They should be hilarious after the proper post-production work is done on them. The first of these videos is also the first of a little series that my brother Connor and I have been dreaming of making for years now... Stupid Random Funny Clips. They are collections of short little clips that are supposed to be extremely random and not make much sense. Think non-repeating Vines or ASDF videos (except Connor and I thought of this idea long before either of those were around). The second of these is a little video I like to call "The Janitor Games", in which Connor and AJ play janitors (er, custodians) trying to clean the fastest, the coolest, and the bestest they can.
Well, I should really get started on editing those, so I will sign off. Next week, the day before we head off to Kidz Camp, I'll release some sort of teaser of some of the videos I'll have been working on over that time. And after they're all finished and we're back from Kidz Camp, I'll release them all on here for y'all to enjoy. Thanks for reading!
