Despite the very creepy name, Teengirl Fantasy is a fantastic bedroom electronic/chillwave act (with a fantastic new-ish album called 7 AM.)
But my favorite song of theirs isn't from that album (actually, I don't know what it's from) called "Portofino." Check out the weird video below (it reminds me of something that would be on an old laserdisc about the rainforest) and come back at the end of the week for another edition of Can't Keep Up. I don't know what the topic's going to be, but I bet it's dumb!
OK, so I alluded to this a few days ago, but our video for our fake tv channel's fake fall programming lineup is now in its first rough-to-final draft stage. We were trying to make the video quality look bad, but we might have succeeded a bit too well. But those are things that can be worked on easily. All of the creating/writing/acting is done at this point.
Couple of points:
1.) If you are offended by mildly offensive stuff or by stupid stuff, this isn't probably for you.
2.) It's better on headphones or turned up real loud because some of the volume levels differ.
3.) I don't think there's any cursing, but it's probably not nursing home friendly.
Here's the video. Would love to hear if you hate it.
Look at me posting twice in one week! I'm a machine!
So I have a couple fun things that I thought the Internet would like to see. In one of our classes this week, we were tasked to create videos for either REI or Bass Pro Shops (as well as execute 4 other ideas fully - it's been a busy 48 hours). So below is the video my team made, and also one that features me as "the talent" (or lack thereof). Check it out, I think they're both pretty funny and very stupid.
First up is my video, created under the umbrella theme of, "Nature can be entertaining, too." Our campaign is trying to reach those urbanites who would rather sit in a movie theater or in front of a game console than head outdoors. This video isn't so much a commercial as it is a "mood piece." Regardless of its strategic significance, I think it's a nice little bit of humor.
The next video is where I was asked to play a character named the "Mountain Man." The group's premise was that Bass Pro Shops are so big that a mountain man could live in there full time and never starve/get bored. This video is the introduction to their campaign, a nice little way to introduce audiences to their spokesperson. The concept and writing goes to some friends, but I also added a few improvisational touches here and there.
