This October I attended my fourth straight year at the Flyway Film Festival in beautiful Pepin, Wisconsin. It’s an intimate, cozy little festival created by festival director (and Pepin resident) Rick Vaicious and run by a team of dedicated volunteers. Last year I was at the festival with Beauty Day and Rick asked if I might be interested in shooting an opening night film specifically for Flyway. Immediately we both knew Reed would be involved as I’d previously screened both Cooking With Gerry and A Very Gerry Xmas, cementing Reed Farrington’s status as a Flyway favourite. So, after taking about half a year to think it out, it was decided that Reed would actually take over the duties of filming the opening night short, and I would document the process. The result is a behind the scenes look at the making of ‘Scientific Method’, a remake of a short film Reed made 20 years ago (originally titled ‘The Experiment). Well, last weekend we screened the short to a packed house on opening night and it was met with lots of laughs and plenty of love. Now, as a Halloween treat, we’re sharing it with our dedicated Film Junk listeners! So, sit back and enjoy ‘The Making of Scientific Method’!
