Bloopers, “bloopers”, Publicity Stills, “Behind the Scenes”, and Easter Eggs, oh my.
All of you: “Do you hate us, Marlon?!” Nope. Just dreaming up anything that might help you gals break in to the Biz. Then I ride your coattails.
The full voting period is about a month. People can vote once per day, per device. All the contestants will be begging for votes on all their media platforms.
But…will they provide extra entertainment when they do?
Obviously this is secondary to the actual shoot. But there will be natural bloopers we’ll automatically capture on camera. I can ready “ad lib” lines for probable flubs. That makes them funnier and the cast and crew seem amazingly witty.
When “DORY”, “EMMA”, or anyone else on set isn’t busy, they could take pics for publicity stills. Get video clips for off-screen bloopers, “behind the scenes” stuff, etc.
Possible “value-added” material to dribble out over the voting period:
PRE-AND-POST SHOOT PUBLICITY STILLS AND CLIPS:
- The cast, looking good and having fun, standing behind the huge mound of Doritos bags. (Remember: Frito Lay wants almost all of the flavors to be Nacho Cheese and Cool Ranch.)
- Goofy looks and melodramatic poses. You gals are great at these.
- Anything that looks fun, funny, or weird.
BEHIND THE SCENES DURING SHOOT:
- Everyone flinging Doritos at each other across the room during the Mass Flight shot.
- Reaction shots to the many, many “chips to the face” that Anna and Beth will take.
- Likewise when posing them in some of the ridiculous chip-catching positions.
- Anything fun.
PIXAR “BLOOPERS”: These are the only ones that might not be doable, depending on how the shooting goes. I came up with this one in about two seconds. It’s the “dual-wielding” moment:
Anna and Beth clash together. Their Doritos break! (LAUGHTER)
ANNA: “Ahhh! I think I chipped a nail!
BETH: “I nailed a chip!” (MORE LAUGHTER)
If you can’t or don’t want to, no prob. But if we rank high, industry pros or agents might take a look around. And there’s very little dialogue in this thing. Well-delivered “ad libs” will showcase your acting a bit more.
POST-SHOOTING CAST PARTY STILLS AND CLIPS:
POST-PRODUCTION “The Making Of” CLIPS:
These could be shot and posted up until the final voting deadline.
Like: KRIS at computer, video editing, with haunted eyes.
KRIS: “There were so many shots…so many shots…we had more shots than we had Doritos!!”
She breaks down, is comforted by the others.
Or: KRIS and SARAH at computer, sound mixing program open.
SARAH: “Here’s what our insane writer wanted.” (READING) “The sound of 100 gigantic praying mantis brides, married in a mass ceremony, simultaneously consummating their unions with 100 hard-headed husbands.”
Kris hits a key. SFX: TRULY HORRENDOUS CRUNCHING.
Kris: You see what we have to deal with?!”
And when voting starts on Jan. 5th, we release these “bonus features” on social media as we plead for daily votes.
