Have you ever obsessed over instagraming (or “gramming”*) your coffee rather that spend quality time with the person you are having that coffee with? I know I have. I know I have asked my buddies to use their phones as kicker lights; I know I have used menus as reflectors and I sure as heck know that I used random objects around me to “frame” that perfect dish.
I did not, however, bring Arri lights, get a set coordinator, a producer and a yahoo. I also never had a comm system set up just to take a coffee shot (sorry, had to).
The folks from Betch sketch show, guest starring Jimmy Tatro shows how little by little the Instagram of that cup of coffee turns into a nightmare for his date.
So, I guess the real question is not if you ever been in a situation like this, the real question is were you the shooter or the bored companion?
* really? people say “gramming” now?
