April 1 - Filmmaking (Day Five)

This morning Lyric came to me as I was waking up and said he had a nightmare there was a dinosaur in the microwave. I told him it was just a dream and that nightmares can't hurt you, but he demanded I look in the microwave to make sure. Here's what I found:

In the spirit of #radicalhonesty, Lyric TOTALLY BLEW IT last night when, as soon as I came home, he blurted out "Don't look in the microwave!" The kid is humorously awful at keeping secrets. He had also hidden several other things, which he would systematically set and then get too impatient for someone to find it tomorrow.

I did manage to get him back. I told him I had gone out shopping last night and picked up some stuff for breakfast. I asked Lyric if he wanted pepperoni, which he jumped at (it's his favorite). But then I gave him this:

Not pepperoni... PAPER-oni! April Fools!

As for our morning activity, It was supposed to rain this morning, so instead of going out to film more of our 360 film THERE IS A MONSTER IN THE PLAYGROUND, we conducted a slightly more simple shoot indoor with Professor Hotcakes. I have a whole adult puppet show I'm working on starring Professor Hotcakes, but today was the first day I brought him into our morning activities.

I should probably explain a little: Professor Hotcakes is a superintelligent and eccentric crimefighting plate of pancakes and "Shortstack" is his sidekick Benny (who hates the name "Shortstack"). Not sure if that clears anything up, but there you go. Zephyr did the camera, which (finally) allowed me to demonstrate the Professor's eye movement ability!

We might try and pick up the last title shot for THERE IS A MONSTER IN THE PLAYGROUND this weekend, and then next week I'll try editing it together. Fingers crossed!
