Loading Time filming

Daye04 asks: For Heather - how did it come to happen that you toook over the Loading Time filming duties when there was still a weekly sketch?

  • Heather: Alex was filming most of Loading Time, but then he was in a sketch one week and the camera was constantly being handed back and forth. I was just hanging out, so I just picked up the camera so that he could do stuff. And after a little while he was in more stuff, so I took the camera because it was fun to run around and participate as opposed to feeling like (I was) being in the way.
