I love writing screenplays, but it takes a long time with a full-time job and three kids. I only get about an hour a night to write. After three years and eight or nine drafts, I consider a screenplay "finished." It's such a long cycle to get feedback and see if it works or not. As a way to stay creative and do something with a really short cycle time, I started making these Super Geeky videos with my family. The freeing thing is the speed. It takes me a couple of hours to write the script, half a day to shoot on a FlipCam, and about a week of editing. Then I can post it online for people to see and get immediate feedback.
The Super Geeky videos are a Jeopardy parody where my 3-year-old daughter Nora (she's now 4) competes against us in a trivia contest. For this one, we went with a Star Wars theme. It still makes me happy that Nora walks around the house humming The Imperial March.
