WHAT:

"Would You Woodwork?" is a comedic, instructional woodworking webseries. I will give very basic information about different equipment in the woodshop; and it'll be funny because I'll be asking professional comedians to do the woodworking with me. So, even if you have no interest in table saws, you'll still laugh and be thoroughly entertained.

After the videos are shot and edited, they will be shared online for everybody to enjoy.

WHY:

While watching Jerry Seinfeld's webseries "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" I thought, "Wouldn't it be funny to teach Larry David to use a bandsaw!" I probably won't be able to get Larry David, but I'll get some great, funny people who won't disappoint. I think this will be a fun and entertaining twist on instructional woodworking videos that I"ve been wanting to make for a while now. 

On a serious note, I love making things out of wood, and it would be great to share that with others. I hear from people all the time who want to start building stuff, but don't know where to start and are too intimidated to give it a try. My videos would take the mystery out of the workshop, the equipment, and the tools; hopefully giving people the confidence to move forward; all while making them laugh.

WHO:

Welll, there's me! As you can see from the video, I'm not a stranger to the camera. I'm a professional actress and I have a very talented and funny director/producer willing to take on this project. All the videos will be professionally shot and edited. Shooting is scheduled for late February, early March.

Risks and challenges

There's always a chance someone could lose a finger. But that is also what makes this project so exciting. Just kidding, that would be terrible. Also, we follow strict safety guidelines in the shop, so it would be highly unlikely. The only problem I foresee is shooting delays, getting everyone coordinated to shoot at the same time. If we have scheduling conflicts, it could get pushed back to April.
