Blue Food Films is producing a comedy news pilot that, once complete, will showcase a business model that can help local communities learn about and support serious journalism. Rarely are solutions to big problems so fun as with the Newsload. Once completed it will be submitted to Film Festivals everywhere. If you want to learn more about this project contact us.
A Saturday Night Live style commercial parody.
This sketch is another classic comedy piece produced to showcase our ability to produce quality content and fill out a 3:00 minute "Re-enactment Segment" of our Newsload Pilot.
This film is a vanguard in our attempt to carve a new genre of comedy news. With the danger and uncertainty of fake news, getting worse every day, we hope to show how easy it is to trick people into thinking something that is very obviously, even ridiculously, false. We believe if we give people the feeling of “being had” over and over we can make them more critical of the news they watch and hopefully get them to pay more attention to the sources of their real news; the news they make voting decisions based on. Maintaining a common frame of reference is going to become even more critical as the years tick on. We want to drive people to be more appreciative of the journalistic profession alongside pier reviewed science.
Another news comedy expose, our over the top news reporter takes us to a local Canadian event where we showcase what an improvised, Newsload report will look like.
The Newsload will break for commercials at which time commercial parodies such as this will play.
The Newsload will feature classic sketches introduced as "Newsload re-enactments in order to serve the public better."
Now in the 2020 short film festival circut this type of on the ground in real communities will be the linchpin in all Newsload broadcasts.
Showcasing a sample of an improvised news report that can fill out the content of local Newload editions, in different cities, using local improv talent. It took a three person crew four hours on-location to film and was edited in-house in less than a day.
