How to make a funny video

I’ve long been annoyed by these “epic fail” videos where somebody doing something patently stupid — like riding a bike off a roof (I kid you not) — ends up inevitably crumpled on the ground; and then the faceplant has to be repeated multiple times at different speeds, just in case I didn’t get it. But it took actor Brandon Hardesty to make a video lampooning certain types of vlogger to spur me into action.

I now think I have the focusing right. This camera has a large aperture, which I suppose contributes to a very small depth of field in low light, but that does have the distinct advantage that I can throw the background slightly out of focus. I did this by drawing an X on a large sheet of paper and draping it over the back of the chair for me to manually focus on.
