Short Sighted Comedy - Sketch Comedy group in Northern New Jersey
Have you been looking for a sketch comedy group in Northern New Jersey? We have, too! And we were tired of waiting for someone else to create one.
Get together every two weeks to collaborate, pitch ideas, write, and plot when, where, and what we are going to shoot. Then… we shoot and put the resulting videos online!
Create a brand that becomes a household name recognizable outside of our own households as a source of funny, quality material. Our influences: Sophisticated to wacky but always with a sense of intelligence, alien or otherwise. Think Monty Python, Futurama, South Park, Kids in the Hall …. If you share similar sensibilities, we want to meet you!
Who we need (if you fit multiple categories it's a bonus):
- Camera people
- Sound people
The meetings will be around the Bloomfield/Montclair area. We are open to meeting in other areas of Northern NJ so if you know of a good space let us know.
Who we are:
We are Dennis and Bob and we have made short films, commercials, and some sketch scenes. We both act. Dennis is the tech guy with all the gear and Bob is the writer. Together we are unstoppable. You can most likely slow us down by lying down in the road, but we live in NJ. We're not stopping. Check out BrainSplinter.com to see some of our work.
We have a Canon EOS 7D HD-DSLR and a professional shotgun microphone with boompole and wireless lavs. We have a small lighting package, DIY dolly, jib arm, etc. We're serious about our comedy shooting. If you have gear you want to use bring it on.We work well with limited resources, but welcome more tech people to shoot, edit, light, etc.
