A little FAQ:
  • "Oh, you're back?" Yep, sorry we took so much time off. We were busy with... life? I don't know. Making the show is a lot of work and a huge time commitment, but we were able to make it happen. 
  • "Are you going to do more, or will we have to wait another year?" Passive-aggressive much? We're planning on doing at least a few more episodes and then seeing where it goes from there.
  • "Wait... how is this 'Episode 1'? Didn't you do one before?" That was more of a pilot episode to give us a feel of what the show could look like. Based off of Episode 0, we wanted to change the show up a little bit and give it a more dynamic view rather than just a few people sitting around a desk talking to each other.
  • "Is the audio podcast going to come back?" We'll see how these video episodes go first. There are currently no plans to revive the audio show, but you never know.
  • "Where are Andrew, Sarah, and Brad?" Andrew has chosen to step back from co-hosting at the moment. He may or may not appear in later episodes. I'm hoping that Sarah will still be involved, but not likely in entire shows, but rather certain segments. Brad is now our technical director, so he'll be spending more time behind the camera.
  • "Are you making any type of profit from making this show?" No. We do not enable the monetizing capability on YouTube, nor do we accept payments from people or companies to feature certain topics on the show. Guests and crew on Cam-Fu and Friends are not paid to work on this show and are solely here on their own time and dime. We greatly appreciate their sacrifice.

How to watch Cam-Fu and Friends:

A couple items to note:
  • A video podcast!? That's right. It was offered to me and I accepted. There's a longer story behind how this came about, but it's equally not entertaining, so I won't bother. The question is, will we do more? It is very likely, though it will likely be a bit different as this is just a pilot to see what is possible.
  • There is minimal post-editing in the show. We recorded this live in one big 30 minute chunk.
  • Guests and crew on Cam-Fu and Friends are not paid by the host or any other company to talk about or feature their topics. Cam-Fu and Friends is a non-profit video podcast. No advertising or money was used for this show.
  • Special thanks to Crispin who assisted as a last minute Engineer. We did not have time to add him to the end credits.
  • Thanks to Kristyona, David, Don, Jarrod, Craig, Tamarra, Siobahn, Dano, Taryn, Lori, Rich, Annie, Virgil, Lisa, and Josh for appearing in the 2012 and 2013 compilation videos.
  • Read my written reviews for the movies we discussed in this episode: Cabin in the Woods, Paperman, Star Trek.
