Something's Crappy Around Here!
What's better than watching a fat, patriotic biker with
tight clothing on who is drugged and dancing? Probably not much, but I
think that if there was some sort of contest, JAMES BOO would definitely
be in the running.
One weekend in April of 2000, I was quite bored, so I crawled
to my sisters room and begged her, "Zoë, can we go make a movie?
Pretty please?" (which is pretty similar to the
email I sent her three years earlier). She was quite excited herself,
so she just popped out a good ole, "WELL DANG, SHUCKS YEAH!"
There was only one problem now: who
would be in it, what would it be about, and where would we film it? We
called up the Notorious P.Y.G, Chad Walker (of Ganja
Juice fame), he accepted the invitation, and within 45 minutes, we were
in full swing.
An example of awesome dialogue!
After Chad was at our house, it was nearly unanimous, "We're
gonna make a James Bond kinda' movie!" Another problem: I'd never
seen a James Bond movie. Needless to say, I was cast as the main
character, James Boo! Chad was the Evil Shark, and Zoe was
Mean Russian Book Lady.
We filmed the unplanned movie at Furman University, incorporating
the use of one camera and NO TRIPOD! This movie is so shaked-up it's sometimes
hard to tell what's going on. It's absolutely ridiculously bad. I look
like an absolute fool with my backwards "Alaska" baseball cap,
smoker's jacket, cummerbund, gloves, and water gun.
An action sequence
The movie probably took about an hour to film, and
afterwards, we trekked back home so we could "EDIT" it. The
editing process involved plugging the camera into the VCR, without the
sound, and overdubbing all of the dialogue and sound effects. Chad and I took that upon ourselves entirely. As a result,
the entire movie is unintelligible.
"CRAP!," you just said to yourself... but not
to worry, I've gone through the whole movie and added subtitles to 95%
of it (the other 5% is either unimportant or covered up by sound effects).
This movie is so awesome, you will probably start a fan club and request
JAMES BOO 2!
Unfortunately, I just lied to you. Someone else already
started that fan club.
After I edited this video for this site, it remained on
my computer for a few months and I ended up putting it in Well
Dang! Productions' Tapeworm (fetish). I guess some things eventually
