I've uploaded a new video! Of me! Talking! About how Buffy the Vampire Slayer changed my life!
A few facts about this video:
1. I chose to film at Richmond Beach on the Puget Sound because it's far from streets and I thought there would be no traffic noises. It's true that there were no cars, trucks, or emergency sirens to contend with. Instead, though, there were two seaplanes, countless boats and ferries, an entire tree FULL of crows, and six trains (six!) that interrupted shooting. Everything took more than twice as long as it should have because I kept having to stop and start over.
2. Amazing Intern Amanda edited out all the footage of me cursing at the various noisy things.
3. Most of these scenes were shot in one take because a) I was trying to finish quickly before more noise started up and b) I practiced what I was going to say whenever a train passed. Which meant that I had a lot of time to get it right.
4. Buffy actually changed my life in far more ways than what I mentioned here. But I had to, you know, keep it concise for all of our attention spans.
