Another fine example of what people with no lives can do on a Saturday night. This is a Coronet short our group watched around 2012. In this one, I added sound effects for a little extra pizzazz. This educational short has some issues, besides the content. The film ends abruptly and is heavily scratched, but the riffs more than make up for the non-HD quality.
Our latest riffing session put to film. Here’s the original short (cut down from it’s original 17 minute run-time) with the gang’s usual offering of immature and moronic commentary… And I wouldn’t have it ANY other way! BTW: If you like these video snippets, please ‘Like’ them on YouTube or leave a friendly comment. If you think they suck, please send me a note via the comment form and I’ll be sure to delete it! Just kidding… Please let me know what we can do to make them better (if anything).
In this education short, we learn about conflict resolution… 50’s style! This is the first Read-A-Riff in which we added sound. It doesn’t really take away from the video since we tried inserting it in spots where there was no dialog or narration.
Here we meet Mr. Willis, a man that seems to have a pretty good job with an office and a secretary despite the fact he can’t talk words good. His son soon straightens him out in this enjoyable educational short.
In this exciting short, we learn all about letting go and relaxation. Ironically, it’s taught by a professor that is WAYYYY too uptight and stoic. As our video skills slowly increased with each Read-A-Riff, we add more and more to the videos to enhance the experience. Here we added some graphic elements and animation.
This was my first attempt at a Read-A-Riff. It took the most time and I think the results speak for themselves. It’s an educational short from Encyclopedia Britannica called ‘Don’t Get Angry’. It was made in the 50’s (obviously) and includes one of my favorite riffs as one kid is trying to build something on a workbench. Enjoy!
So, what exactly is a ‘Read-A-Riff’? It’s our way of riffing a short film without interfering with the audio. The reason for this medium is because that’s how I was raised… on B-Movie riffing. About 3 years ago I was introduced to a group called Riff-Club, formerly NoFadz (withazee). I was delighted to find a group of people that suffer from the same thing I’ve been living with for years and that is making fun of some really bad stuff. Every Saturday night we watch a hand-picked B-Movie and then riff the selection using a chat panel. We do this … Continue reading
