Think TV: Finding Humor in Found Footage

by Jerome Weeks 28 Oct 2009 1:43 PM

Nick Prueher talks to Krys Boyd about the truly funny-awful tapes of the Found Footage Festival: training films, dating videos and, of course, the guy-dropping-his-pants furniture ad. Through such tapes, you, too, can learn to defend yourself against some really vicious short ribs.

Nick Prueher and Joe Pickett created the Found Footage Festival in 1991 after coming across a McDonald’s training video on custodial duties. They’ve taken the FFF to the South by Southwest Festival, the Late Show with David Letterman and your local online DVD store. Most recently, FFF appeared at the Lakewood Theatre.
