Well, well, well. I promised a blog every day didn’t I. Sorry about that, but we’ve been MAD busy! We’re in the middle of a major event in Dundee right now, called “LOVE DUNDEE”, and we’re doing a lot of music and video stuff for it.
In the meantime though, here’s a vid of me smacking myself in the face with a shovel. This is an out-take from the vid we made for this year’s Virgin Media Shorts competition. Please click the link below to view it on their official website, and register to rate/comment. It would be seriously appreciated! 🙂

Hi man ALIVE fans, Stu here!
Its been aaaaa(ages)aaa long time since I last blogged, I usually let my employee Liam do all the company communications whilst I attend to more important matters like photoshopping moustaches, monacles and pipes onto the faces of well known animal stars. Feel free to check these out at http://www.highbrow-animalhumour.com or http://www.pets-of-sherlockholmes.com
Anyway, its been an incredible day for man ALIVE Studios today. We took an early morning road trip through to Dundee’s west-coast big sister, Glasgow and visited some very nice people at The Comedy Unit, (producers of Chewing the Fat and Rab C Nesbit) to talk a bit about our blossoming careers. To put it bluntly, and that is how it was put to us, we’ve got nothing. Its true, we made one comedy piece that won a competition a year ago, and have somehow been given the opportunity to talk to top industry people about…US!
“You’re not the best, but you’re not the worst” is a phrase that was used, most graciously and honestly, in our meeting this morning, but despite being no further forward in our attempts to achieve Andy Millmanism (check out extras for the reference), we couldn’t be more excited about our future in Comedy.
And this is great for all our viewers too because we’ve realised just how much more quality entertainment we need to produce in order to break through. So I’m starting by getting everyone geared up for a daily stream of man ALIVE blogging and twittering.
You MUST check us out. Comment us and we’ll get back to you and when we get big you can show your friends that you were there in the beginning!
Alright, peace and love
In the month of August, man ALIVE Studios had a visit from the wise and mighty Justyn Rowe (of MediaJR in Florida). He became our very own Yoda, dispensing production wisdom with every utterance. We learned a great deal from working with Justyn, but one of the first things he spoke to us about was the importance of getting a really good camera.
Most of our work up to that point had been with the Sony HDR-SR1, which is not a bad little piece of hardware, but Justyn showed us some of the work he’d been doing with his own camera and it blew our minds. Take a look at this daft video we did below to see what we mean – it’s just us running around in a field being idiots, while Justyn takes some footage without putting any real effort in…
Look how beautiful the image is!
Anyway, Justyn pointed us in the direction of the Sony EX1. More on that later!
Here is our latest adventure. It has everything, from cops with automatic weapons, to secret government filming, to giant bugs lurking in public toilets.
And here’s the news story which came next!
Keep your eyes freshly peeled and your ears pushed groundwards.
man ALIVE are comin’ at ya. Like cleopatra.
Last week, “man, ALIVE Studios” went to Glasgow to film some contemporary dance antics.
The filming went fine and we were all set to head home. Little did we know that Glasgow was very like the thunderdome in “MAD MAX 3”, but even more sinister;
“Two men enter, no man leaves.”
This is the story of those two men…
Good times? I’m not so sure…
