Yesterday we had the video shoot for the 9th episode for the Psychotaku. It was pretty amazing. Just to give a teaser, I didn’t shave for 3 weeks to prepare myself for the character portrayed yesterday. I was still the Psychotaku, but took it on myself to give the character a slight twist.
During the Professor Freddie and the Cosmos shoot, I was getting pretty down. Mainly because as Freddie would change and create an exciting new character each episode, I realized the Psychotaku was basically the same each time. I was worried the character may get stale and boring. It was at that shoot I decided to tweak the character for yesterday’s shoot.
Inspiration comes at strange times. Usually when I have no way of writing the idea down. In the shower, driving, on the toilet or even at work while doing some menial task. And then it just makes the task even more weird. Driving while repeating the idea out loud, over and over again until getting the chance to stop and frantically scrounging for a pen and paper to write it down. Thus is life.
But it’s better to write ideas down. Who knows you may find it years later when you actually have the time and means to actually do it. That and you save yourself the aggravating time wasted thinking about, “What was that idea I came up with? I remember it was awesome! Dammit!” Because sometimes it wasn’t so awesome.
So I’m glad I wrote down the idea for the Psychotaku so that I can share it with all of you guys!
