Behind the Scenes
"This oddly popular video was written in a weekend and put together over spring break. Graham called me up and said he had this idea for a musical number. I hummed out a melody, then Graham and I brainstormed lyrics. With a rough chord structure, Graham was able to get me into a small computer lab at Uvic in the Visual Arts building where after four or five days work with the Garage Band program, we were able to pound out the track. We shot it in an afternoon, everyone lip-synching to a scratchy boom-box, Graham being dangerously carted around with his camera on top of a borrowed dolly from the art department. Then the whole thing was edited and put on the site. Thanks again to everyone who helped to put it together. I'm so glad people enjoy it, even though the music isn't as clean as I'd like it to be." - Andy
