Making Fun Things

How To Roundup


I’ve managed to be in a lot of Make how-to videos. Each one was pretty fun to do, in it’s own way. Here are my top favorites:

First, the Smart Remote Control. This was the craziest one we’d done, and therefore a blast to do. It took a lot of work to make it look so bad.

Next up: Data Dial Dashboard. This was the last project of the season, so I got a little carried away with the narration. The director decided to run with it.

Finally, the Vampire Flashlight. We were up until about 11:00 filming this, which is pretty unusual for me. The makeup was wonderful, and added that right atmosphere to get everyone on board. I spent a solid 15 minutes trying out different screams on Wynter to get him to laugh. Too bad I don’t have any of those outtakes around.

I’d like to wrap it up at 3 to keep it short. But since it’s my blog and I’m in charge, I’ll leave you with a couple more. Universal Translator wins for Hitchhikers Guide references, and the award for sheer weirdness goes to Crypto Currency Tracker.
