MM9 – 24 Hour Movie Marathon – 2014 – Bloopers

MM91

Another 24-Hour Movie Marathon has come and gone. This year was just as much fun as last. As usual, our fan films are a lot of fun to make – but they are not without some comical errors. Check out some of our tribute film bloopers!

You Don’t Bring Me Flowers Anymore

Flowers

And I Don’t Blame You

I mean, I’m barely ever here!

So, I opened the door to the editing room of this blog and had to blow dust off of the desk before I sat down to write. Keeping Toronto Thumbs running is a bittersweet task. On one hand, I get to write about all kinds of cool stuff; but at the same time, it takes me away from writing articles here (and for other places, as well). 2013 was a fairly eventful year, full of family goodness, friends and all around good times. It was also the busiest year yet for Toronto Thumbs, which resulted in a feeling of fulfillment at the end of 2013.

Jumping to Conclusions

Burned Unit

A few of my friends and I will (occasionally) take a perfectly innocent phrase in one of our conversations and turn it on it’s ear with some good ol’ innuendo (in YOU end oh). The following convo was with a friend of mine, to whom I loaned the season 1 DVD set of Burn Notice



Booya! Click to make bigger (that’s what she said).


Of course, later on I thought about it – and it could have easily been referring to some kind of medical show. Ah well. Can’t win ‘em all, right?

Ink This Wisdom

Little J has a very creative brain and a unique perspective that I can relate to. We were walking around today, enjoying the weather when we ran into a friend who has a dog. Little J said hi to both friend and canine, and as we continued she told me this…

Little J: Daddy, I think having more than one pet is too many pets.
Me: Really?
Little J: Yeah. It’s too much work. But, if you wanted to have more than one pet, you can take a magic pill that turns you into an octopus. Then you would have enough arms to take care of them.

That’s my kiddo.

Cracked Berry

You Know It Has Been A Long Day When…

You are sitting on the bus on your way home from work (reading e-mails on your BlackBerry), when you suddenly reach for your holster to discover that your BlackBerry is not there! So, what do you do? You start typing a BlackBerry Messenger note to your boss letting him know that you think you might have lost your…oh wait…how am I typing this again?

Hold Your Applause

Armed and Dangerous

Sometimes I wonder if I’m going to be spending the afterlife in a very warm place.

Observe: a friend tweeted this…

I replied with this…

Anyone have an extra portable air conditioner they don’t need?

MM6 – 24 Hour Movie Marathon – 2011

Just so you know, there were some complications this year; both in terms of: the movies we selected and the circumstances under which we were placed to film the fanpics. Not everything was able to make it in this year. Also: we are lazy.

After what seems to have been an eternity, another 24 Hour Movie Marathon is upon us. Having skipped 2010 (although the official position is that we HAVE maintained the average of one per year since we doubled up in 2008), we are very much raring to go. The dynamics of our free time have changed a bit, but steps have been taken to make room for the event. Booya!

The lineup this year, in my opinion, is the strangest yet (or maybe the space in between this year’s and the last has clouded my memory); however, I am very much looking forward to these twelve films. The challenge will be staying awake and doing a good job on our fan films. Every year that we do this we wonder if the idea well for our multimedia hilarity will run dry; so far we have managed to come up with -according to us- some good material.
