DAVE MYERS: You know like when you get a call sheet when you're filming? We wanted to write call sheets we wanted to get. You know, like don't get up too early. You know, go and eat something somewhere, and you know, go and listen to music.
Back in the old days, we used to do all the research ourselves. I'd schedule it. Kingy would do the camera positions and locations.
KATE THORNTON: No.
DAVE MYERS: Yeah. And the director just turned up and shot it.
KATE THORNTON: You were like YouTubers before YouTube was even a thing.
DAVE MYERS: Yeah, YouTube for prime time.
KATE THORNTON: Yeah.
DAVE MYERS: Yeah.
