dude on the set of "not a fan."


The 5th episode of "not a fan" requires one of the characters to have a two year-old son. My two year-old son nailed the aud-ish. Actually, there was no audition. They just kind of cast him.

Anyway, here's a brief snippet of his behind the scenes antics. My personal favorite: flying like Buzz Lightyear.

Note: The audio, for some reason, is out of sync. Perhaps it will improve as the video undergoes more processing. If not, it really doesn't matter as no one speaks on camera after the first ten seconds anyway.

not a fan - beetlemania


"not a fan" beetle ride from City on a Hill Productions.

This video gives a brief glimpse of how CHP recreates the magic of a Volkswagon Beetle ride circa 1979. The Oath of Desormeau's David Attebury rides shotgun.

Funny, I believe my parents had a beetle in 1979-complete with a baby me in the car seat.
