Made a blooper reel. Now what?

How should I use this to promote the accompanying episode?

Also, why are bloopers funny? It’s just people laughing and it’s not like you’re in on the joke. They just have the giggles and can’t seem to stop laughing.

And, what do the directors out there when people start giggling and can’t stop?

@Producers any ideas?

I’d use it to redirect attention back to the episode after about a week or so at least. People like them because it makes the characters/actors more relatable and show more sides of them!

I don’t do too much to resist it, I let them get it out of their system. I find when I comment/add more to the conversation it only prolongs it. They’re professionals, they want to get back to work too, I trust them to do that as quickly as they can. But my cast are also angels haha

It was sooo much laughing. We had everyone but the actor and the cameraman leave the room. The cameraman ended up laughing.

I agree that the audience appeal is that they get to know the actors rather than their characters.

I would just post this the same places you post episodes. It’s more of a “soft sell” approach which can be more effective at times.

That’s the best way I’ve found to work with bloopers/extra content too!
