2006 has definitely been the year of These People for our little group. So with it coming to a close I thought I’d take a look back at my personal top 10 These People moments of the year (the views and opinions of Joel do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of These People or it’s partners).
#10) Buying the mannequin that would go on to star in “2 Guys and a Mannequin” :
There wasn’t quite a troupe yet, but how could I pass up this bargain? He’s great and he still scares visitors to my house.
#9) The Bing Bong Brothers :
OK, not specifically a These People moment but we got a lot of mileage out of this song in pre/post shoot recreation time.
#8) Launching the site:
God, what a weight of my shoulders that was. Now I get started on v. 2
#7) Getting T-shirts printed:
I really couldn’t have asked for a better logo and Cathy really delivered. I want it on everything.
#6) It’s Your Show calling me and asking to “speak with These People, please”:
“Uh, I’m a representative of These People, how may I help you?”
#5) Hell’s Half Mile Film Festival:
Everyone there was really great to us and I can’t wait to do it again next year. We won another film fest, but you never forget your first.
#4) The 1st photo shoot with John:
Just so much fun. So much that we did it again for the upcoming DVD.
#3) NBC’s Best of 2006 nomination:
Yes, it just happened yesterday, but it’s insane!
#2) MDA summer camp:
Made great new friends and met so many cool people. And I’d never been to camp before 😉
#1) Yahoo! Talent Show finalists:
Top 20 out of what? 4000? Not bad. What a nerve racking few weeks that was.
So that’s it. Thank you’s to everyone who’s chosen to follow our little adventures this year. While I love doing this for myself and have a lot of fun working with my friends to do something fulfilling, it certainly makes it a lot sweeter to know you guys are out there watching and enjoying it too. Thanks for the support, we’ll see you in 2K7.
