I found an old VHS of a movie I did when I was 15 or 16. I hadn't seen it in years so I popped it in and watched it. I had to laugh just watching it, at the campy attempt at real drama. I got to thinking it would be funny to see projects other people did when they were kids. Especially the more prominent members on this forum.

If anybody has a link to a short that was made when they were young post a link to it here. I am working on mine to get it online, so you guys can see it.

A cracking idea! Even though most of my current stuff is still "Campy Ham" there are some early efforts that will. . . um. . . generate a response. . .

I toyed with the idea years ago to have a 'worst of'-segment on my showreel just to poke a bit of fun at myself, but in the end I decided against it. You never know who you might offend or upset, besides most probably wouldn't understand you were trying to be funny and just think you're a poop DP for including it.

I had a wrap party not too long ago and decided to give the cast and crew a laugh by screening a few bits of old stuff I'd shot that was frankly appaling.

When we screened it there were a few titters and people got the joke, but after a bit of time they started moving nervously in their chairs and a lot of them got that look in their eye, you know the one that says "What the hell am I doing working with this guy?".

We cut the screening short and I've never made the mistake again. I have a ton of stuff that will never see the light of day. God forbid anyone gets their hands on it. :o
