What have I been up to?

Whew. Been one busy doggie since I got back from Chicago. It’s been a surreal journey moving here, meeting all these new people, getting in all these new jobs, running back to Chicago, having the time of my life writing Phudie Mart then coming back and jumping hip-deep in naked women.

I just edited two pay-per-view sex videos in a week. What have you been up to? Every day last week I edited for thirteen hours a day and for the last two nights I put in around twenty and then stayed up late to output. It’s been insane. Since I got back from Chicago it’s been pretty much like this, first working long long hours to put out Five half-hour episodes of Girls Gone Wild, and for the last week putting out two Episodes of a show called Too Much For TV. TMFTV is a pay-per-view show that will also be sold on DVD.

The concept that the company came up with was to take all these softcore clips of women stripping from hundreds of softcore videos that have been floating around for years and repackage them as new content. I think all they wanted was the minimum, but that’s not how Nancy works. Nancy took her friend, the very entertaining Scott Potasnik down to Hollywood and Highland (near Mann’s Chinese Theatre, freak central) and interviewed people on the theme of the week to create bumpers and transitions. The footage turned out hilarious, people are very funny when they talk about sex, and the host Scott was pretty over the top, at one point bending a large woman over and humping her on the sidewalk. Higher quality than expected. Meanwhile Nancy decided to shoot some softcore scenes on her own to freshen up the content. Her new footage, shot at the house I used to edit in (it’s hilarious to see lesbians making out in the bathroom where I took a steamer the day before), turned out way better than the footage they provided us. So by the end of the third episode (I didn’t edit the pilot) we realized we had kind of a new show, one that actually made us laugh out loud during the long edit sessions.

But it was a long week. And I was under the gun to get three of Nancy’s scenes done a day (25 minutes of Raw into 3 minutes each time), I exceed that by one scene the first day, two the second, three the third. But no matter how I was exceeding her deadline Nancy was feeling the pressure of the overall deadline so instead of being complimented I was simply asked why I hadn’t gotten something else done. I’m a very guilty editor because I’m not as fast as a lot of people and don’t bring a very big bag of tricks, so I always feel like I’m letting anyone I work for down. But the ultimate compliment came at the end, I was editing the whole time in Nancy’s kitchen and I stayed up to output as she crashed in the next room.

“Adam” she said after long silence.

“Yes.” I said, assuming I’d forgotten something again.

“You rock.” Nancy stated before sleep caught up with her.

Now I move on to ten more GGW’s and from the looks of these latest episodes, many more eps of Too Much For TV.

Having a great time.
