Maximising Your Uselessness

We’re starting a new I Am Tim shoot tonight – this time for some Season 2 stuff – and I’m soon to be recording sound, getting trampled and bloodied up some time before midnight, so I’m just going to get a quick one out before chaos ensues.

I’m also still technically a producer on this thing, but from the way the Season 3 shoots went it’s become apparent that letting the other producers (and significantly more organised folks) do the heavy lifting and just do whatever jobs are left over.

It might sound lazy but honestly, fewer things go wrong when I steer clear and just, well…’consult’ is probably the right word. Advice on fixing up a script and coming up with jokes? I’m your man. Solving blocking conundrum? I may have some thoughts. But calling up locations and searching for actors under the mossy rock of casting web sites? I’m like a clownfish on Everest.

And, frankly, everyone seems happier that way. So while recording sound (in perpetual lieu of another consistent sucker) isn’t exactly my ideal vocation, I more than welcome it if it means that people aren’t tearing their hair out or beating each other up.

Which of course doesn’t happen anyway. Promise.

So yeah, I think it’s gonna be good. Well, you never know if it’ll be good. At least it’ll be fun.
