On Saturday, Lou Ryan Productions (named after my boyfriend, Lou Ryan) filmed most of the footage we need for a music video of a song by Needless Noise. We don't know what the song is actually called, so we might have to make up a title.
That's right... we filmed a music video and don't even know what the name of the song is! We might know if the band members had actually showed up for the shoot! (Even though B-Gangsta was on Craft Services, starting with blueberry pancakes....)
[ATTENTION: They were not TOLD that we were shooting the video! The explanation is here.]
At least one said he would be here on Saturday with a megaphone, an important prop, but he wasn't and we weren't able to find a megaphone anywhere in town!
` Of all the people to help us out, it was the crazy landlady... though apparently not understanding the significance of micro (small) and mega (big), she instead brought a microphone. Even though they are two very different things we got some good use out of it.
You should have seen the way B-Gangsta rode Lou Ryan down the hallway, screaming and wrapping the cord around his neck!
Of the people who did show up for the shoot were two film guys, Random and Bob, John (as Duct Tape Man), who works at my gym, Matty, our new Lou Ryan Productions team member who knows the band, and of course Lou Ryan, B-Gangsta, and me, as I'd been let go from my job.
It's now being put together by Bob at Pathetic Pictures: You can actually watch a preview/the construction of the video, though filming is incomplete (we were going to shoot some scenes out in the woods but we were stopped by the first snow of the year) so it won't be finished until we do that.
Me, as Total Bitch
Lou Ryan, as Traumatized Ex-Boyfriend
B-Gangsta, as Microphone Man (formerly Megaphone Man)
my car as Total Bitch's Car
and our house as Bitch and Traumatized's House.
I really must go (to the gym) now (and probably chat with Duct Tape Man), though I'll mention quickly that; even though the roads were icy, Lou Ryan's mother and her boyfriend did make it up here along the unsalted roads in time for a Mexican fiesta by Iron Chef Gangsta.
And, as a note to certain men... I hope you did enjoy the shower scene!
