Super America Saves The World -- World Premiere

OK, Bob here for a rare cameo visit to PregnantlyPlump. I hope you enjoy Little Elvis' first foray into filmmaking. Since there aren't any bonus features or a director's cut version, I'll just give you a behind the scenes glimpse about the making of the movie. Mere did all the shooting and editing (Oscar anyone?). In coming up with the theme song, I played around with my little multi-track recorder. Mind you, I'm mostly an acoustic musician, but knew that LE would want more of a rocking tune for his movie. I pulled up a "canned" drum track and then plugged in and played a punk progression on my archtop electric guitar (running it through some distortion effects). I played the music for LE the next day and, after listening to it one time, he improvised the lyrics, sang to the chord progression and knew exactly when to wrap it up in one take. I was really impressed -- what a pro!

We love it! "Love it, love it, love it!" says N.

My favorite part is the "Yeah, Yeah, Yeah"s in the song, But the Pow! With graphic effects is also great. Or maybe when Super American emerges from the rubber duck bathtub and looks back at the camera? That part is pretty great, too. So many wonderful things to love!
