In This skit Klee and I are “parking” and I was totally going to get to second base until we were attacked by aliens.
This was filmed at night, so there was a lot of moving lights around involved and the challenge of keeping the auto-focus from going crazy.
One funny thing about filming this skit is the fact that the alien who is played by my cousin Erik is supposed to be a tiny scary Alien who just sort of appears. Well, the challenge is the fact that Erik is a big dude with wide shoulders.
Erik had to stand on his knees to reach the small alien stature, yet you still see some of the widest shoulders you could ever see on an alien. He was a great sport.
I have to applaud Klee in this skit. Her performance was amazing, and her terrified screams are convincing… When I was editing I had to lower the volume because our dog thought I was killing her every time I played back a scene. It turned out great!
Chances are if you live in Pensacola Florida you’ve seen a crazy looking truck with the words Watch us on Youtube painted all over it, or maybe you ran across one of the videos by Rafi Was Here on Youtube.
Rafi Was Here is a small (Very small) production company that is focusing all it’s efforts on creating fun and original content on Youtube.
Armed with a cheap camera, an old computer and creativity we decided to see how far we can go and how many people we can make laugh.
In 2009 Klee and I (Rafi) left Chicago Illinois and traveled the country in a customized 92 Ford Explorer. We decided to hang out in Pensacola for a while and focus on filming. So far so good.
