Before I even shot the promo for Friendsgiving I knew we would have more than enough footage to create some kind of fun viral video. And once we decided on a direction, it was full speed ahead...we started just coming up with lines and having a blast. I recruited a co-worker as the voice of the monkey, I became the ADD frisbee dog and 2C Media became the macaw. It was talking animal gold - the video received over 2,000 hits in under two days.
Here's my YouTube description:
You think human actors can be divas on movie sets? Well, those humans look like angels compared to these animal divas! Here's an exclusive look behind-the-scenes of Nat Geo Wild's promo shoot for Friendsgiving. Let's just say, the animals weren't all that patient. Don't believe us? See for yourself.
