Best idea ever? The crew over at Droptree Productions took every chance on breaks and in between takes to capture clips for a ridiculous (and amazing) music track, just for funsies. And we love funsies. It's not just a lip dub of a popular track either, it's all about film production and has everything from a fresh beat to a rippin' guitar solo from a dude with a giant beard. Stop what you're doing and watch this.
Complete with pro tips, I was tempted to mark this video as educational.
In all seriousness, keeping things fun on set is a surefire way to keep a crew happy and easy to work with. Week long stretches of production can make anybody delirious, so coming up with creative ways to inject some energy into a project can keep folks motivated. What better way to do that than to create another piece of art on the side? Very cool stuff.
With set pieces that already have lights, fog, aerials, or other cinematic attributes, it's awesome to see some silliness happen. Data is relatively cheap compared to film, so it's much easier to roll another take just for fun while you're working.
If you want even more laughs, check out Droptree's retro website. It's so cringeworthy, it's amazing.
If you feel like working out, then maybe this video would work for you instead:
