when i was growing up erica and i loved making home videos. we loved making home videos probably more than we liked to think about cool things we could do when we were bored which we did a lot. we probably spent at least half our time thinking about what we could do instead of actually doing anything. regardless, this is about home videos.
we made a lot of them. we started out amature style doing day time talk shows, music videos, cooking shows, and occasionally movies. after we had been doing our movies for a while we started making these movies for class projects. now, thinking back on it i have no idea what those projects were. All of our projects were edited in-camera so you can tell what kind of quality you're getting with these babies. oh yes, and our sound was usually created by pre-programed tunes on an electric piano. (i distinctly remember one doing a countdown in a crazy voice 188.8.131.52 then insert crazy, sweet electronica noises) i have compiled a list of just some of the many that i remember making.
please let me know if any titles intrigue you i'll be sure to write a longer, more detailed synopsis for you on the blog so you can get a better feeling for our art and perhaps someday we'll put them out on DVD for everyone's enjoyment.
