Banned Election PSA

October 30th, 2012

Inspired by all of the political ballyhoo of the 2012 election, PRETTY POLITICAL–the team behind “Legitimate”–got together to produce a satirical PSA. I helped produce, and also appear in, this short that’s definitely not for the “right”-hearted. With tens of thousands of views on YouTube and other sites, our little PSA made quite a political splash!

Legitimate

August 25th, 2012

Inspired by the idiotic comments of Rep. Todd Akin, my friends and I got together to produce a Funny or Die short.Ā LegitimateĀ is a smart political satire, written by Jennefer Ludwigsen, that chronicles the process during “legitimate rape,” when the female reproductive system tries to “shut the whole thing down.”

From conception to birth in five days, this project was a producing challenge. At 10 A.M. Monday, the idea was hatched. By 10 P.M., we’d secured crew. At 3:10 P.M. Tuesday, we locked down our location for a 6 P.M. call for cast and crew! We wrapped at 11 P.M., and had a rough cut 24 hours later. We picture locked by 10 P.M. Friday, with sound design following in the wee hours. By 10 A.M. Saturday morningā€”5 days laterā€”LegitimateĀ was officially born!
