Lightening things up- reprising the Legend of the Revenator 07



Just over two years and 40 pounds ago Brian and I quick-made (like an hour or so) this little video to taunt the Westminster 8th graders who challenged me to a dodgeball match at their graduation party in the gym.

Back in 1997 when I came to Redeemer, our school Westminster Christian Academy had something like 25 students I was tagged to be the gym teacher. For four years I taught gym class which meant playing dodgeball 80% of the time (they got what they paid for). I loved dodgeball, especially taking on the whole class of kids while sitting in a wheelchair. That was sweet. Most of those students are well in to High School or going in to college, but when we see each other we get a chuckle about the "dodgeball days". One student never lets me forget my famous slogan- "Headshots are encouraged"!

Special Credits:

Videography, post-production, poor spelling, lawn mower victim: Brian Hough

Student Victims of Revenator attack: Mrs. Preston's 2007 Kindergarten class

Target Pictures: WCA 2007 7th and 8th Grade classes (many of whom are this years incoming 10th graders...some are still scarred)

The Revenator: Tony Felich

unfortunately no animals were harmed in the making of this film


I though this post would lighten the mood after some heavier posts.

It was your blogg #73, Friday, May 18, 2007, you entittled, "Dodgeball Hero." Here was my reply then, so “here I stand, I can do no other.”

“If anyone thinks being a Christian isn't fun, nor that Jesus doesn't have an "earthly" sense of humor, they haven’t met Tony and Brian! This was truly a couple of clowns, working a creative genius! I bet-ya Pastor Tony had more fun doing this than downing a big-ole 10 pointer!
HAD TO WATCH AND LAUGH ONE MORE TIME. TONY, WHOSE WINDOW DID YOU FURIOUSLY VANDALIZE?”

Window? What window?

CGI

The window to the old shed. I figured that out two years ago.

Excellent work, Tony! That was awesome. You were really channeling Francis Ford Coppola by knocking that foam pony's head off (or whatever it was). Classic.

I feel a cinematic collaboration coming on . . .
