Let's talk about Street Jeans.
When I (Kellen) was traveling internationally in January, I met two couples during a family style dinner at a resort. We went around the table and spoke about our hobbies, our lives, and our aspirations. I got on the topic of Comedy Fiends and somehow ended up pitching them the Street Jeans concept. No one laughed. I think they all just politely smiled and nodded as I struggled to explain it. It was amazing and that's when I knew the Street Jeans idea was a winner.
Billy and I wrote up a draft after I got back from vacation and shot it on a sloppy Saturday in February. The first things we shot were actually the first things we cut from the final version. It was of the Arkwright Employee in his house breaking in the jeans. Check out the deleted bits below:
After we shot the bathroom scene, we went outside of Billy's apartment complex to film the breaking in of the jeans on the street. There was a guy a few feet away from us smoking while letting his dog do his business. We were squirting mustard, ketchup, and dumping beer all over the jeans on the street and he never looked at us once. He probably didn't even notice us, which is great. We're usually worried that people will be wildly offended by our stupidity and tell us to leave when we're filming in public areas. We've been lucky so far.
We wrapped the breaking in scene and headed to my apartment to shoot Richard Bloats' rambling about Street Jeans. It was a pretty standard shoot. No surprises, except for the cats ruining shots, which is now expected. See evidence of that below:
Here are a few other behind the scenes snaps from the Street Jeans shoot.
That's all for now. 'Til next time!
