We had an idea for a pun battle, which turned into a comedy sketch about boxes.
We merged a previous idea we had of a neighbour going away & next door having to sign for mysterious parcels with the idea of a pun battle. Postal puns became the focus of the sketch.
After creating the script we created a loose shot list to follow. As much as we tried to follow it, improvisation always created the best moments. We asked our friends to act for us to save on the costs of a short video & shot everything on our FS700 in one day!
Editing comedy, we found, was all about the timing. Jokes needed to fit sound effects & cuts to create the best impact.
