MAD LIBS – Part 1

MAD LIBS a short comedy was written by Vin Conzo, produced by Under The Radar Productions and David Whitney for less than $1,000.

 A reshoot of a previous attempt to film this lil gem.  David was Director and Production Designer, his creative leadership is evident in the attention to detail. Was at 98% Funny on FunnyorDie.com while it was still up.  Word on the street was even Ang Lee thought it was good, and surprised it came from Maui. (For sound aficionados, it’s could be better, but it’s worth the watch.)

Shot in 2012, it foreshadows more than we even realized in its take on the Oval Office and the power of words.

FiFTY – Murder has a purpose. 

Also written by Vin Conzo, FiFTY is actually a 15-20 minute short. These 2 versions are compressed scripts they were shot as screen tests.

David was brought in to develop the screen tests and full length script in to a viable short film. The full FiFTY script was never shot. But the actors and some crew members have moved on to bigger opportunities.

Both videos are the same pages…. shot with different actors,

It’s interesting to see how the gender switches impact the drama.

It’s all fun and games… ’til someone gets ____________!

An imperfect set of production tests. they all lack 

MAD LIBS is a short comedy was written by Vin Conzo, produced by Under The Radar Productions.

Shoots!

Mad LIBs PURGATORY
High on making the first Mad Libs,  the ensemble got to developing a sequel. With Chino LaForge, Mark Harmon, Sunny Dennis and the rest.

The 2nd installment of MAD LIBS, PURGATORY directed and co-written by David, was written, shot and edited in two weeks. It was intended become an on going web series with another 3 un-produced follow up episodes.

 

Every Story has a Beginning, Middle and End. This earlier test script seems to work as a final act to the MAD LIBs storyline.

THREE PAGE SUBMISSION,
written by Vin Conzo, features Chino and Mark. Intended as a rough test of skills and talents that led to this set of narratives, It was shot before MAD LIBS and never intended for the light of day.  Music added via Youtube enhancements – kinda works. David was designated cinematographer and Production Designer.
