Way back when, I had an idea - a way to kind of "include the crowd" in the making of this film - and it's been a mixed bag to be honest. What I wanted to do (but I have never really had the time to organise or promote it properly) was to get people to submit videos from stag dos they have been on to include in the opening credits of the film.
We have had a couple sent in but the rest have been found through research, hard work and super-duper lucky-ass networking on social media. What this has meant it watching a TON of stag do videos (usually on Youtube) and then getting in touch with the posters... You boys sure have a lot of fun on those stag nights/ weekends huh??? Common themes are the Prague pub crawl, the mankini a la Borat, paint balling and getting whipped in Coyote Ugly in Magaluf.
It's funny there are so many hen and stag dos in Newcastle that we hardly bat an eyelid when we see them going on - the question is are the public ready for four Geordie lads in a sweary comedy about a stag do? I guess we'll find out soon enough. Reels 2 and 3 are locked, reel 1 is still waiting for the VFX shots and reel four just needs the animation tweaking... So close I can smell it (at least I think it's the finish I can smell and not my ass).
What are your stag do stories? Anything you can share?
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
