AFV (aka America’s Funniest Videos) was in the Loyal Studios Santa Monica studio with Tom Bergeron to promote the show. True to form, Mr. Bergeron was nothing but gracious and very funny. Despite predictions from the crew there were no embarrassing moments or clutsy moves that would warrant submission to the show for the $10,000 prize. Cameras were poised around the studio just in case. How cool would that be to have a Tom Bergeron gaffe actually aired on the actual program? We tried, but he was onto us. Next time you visit, Tom, we promise the only cameras rolling will be the one with the teleprompter.
AMV again in the future. “Tom couldn’t have been better to work with,” says Bob Bekian, owner of Loyal Studios. “Technically, we set up a live keyed out green screen shot, and placed large monitors in front of Tom on the stage , then inserted the funny video into the shot . Tom saw the video on the monitor, then we inserted him into the clip so he could interact with the segment.” Bekian added.
The final result was hilarious and the network was thrilled at the work Loyal Studiosdid to accomplish these shots.
Thanks to the proliferation of inexpensive video camcorders, video phones and digital technology, there is never a shortage of material for the very popular, very successful ABC show. If you have a funny video, prank or fall that brings tears of laughter to your eyes, then we suggest that you submit to AFV. You could win $10,000. How bad can that be?
