These precious comedy crystals started forming during my trip to New Orleans last year, I was taken back by the large number of street performers there. A lot of them where killing it, very impressive. For some reason I thought of a mime with a basic brown box reading, Mime Stuff 25 Cents. I liked the idea of him shouting out his mime abilities as people walk by, just hoping they would come watch him ‘mime around’. I had to do it.
Once I got home and watched the footage I wanted to make a weird guy character, someone that might actually do this earnestly. I ended up editing it into three videos and I like them all. The whole thing was done in three sessions, two on the street and one in the kitchen of an innocent family.
