Nickelodeon and Laurette T. Hinch

April 13, 2009

It’s timely that around the same time we went in to meet with the fine folks (and fellow Wildcat alumni) at Nickelodeon about The Kitty Landers Show, we also released on YouTube a solid-gold segment from the original 33 min cut of KLS — The Artist’s Roundtable with Laurette T. Hinch.  See it below!

This bit was the very first thing we shot for KLS.  We used my small, consumer grade cameras, put the comedic genius Lauren Weedman in a room with a cool four year-old, and rolled camera.  Nothing was scripted for this hilarious Charlie Rose-esque piece.  I still giggle when I watch it.
