Something to Think About: “Too Many Cooks”


Over the weekend, Dan Bailey shared this video with me; it’s apparently the latest big internet meme. I found it enjoyable and well-made (especially in light of all the potential complications to making a short film we’ve discussed in Advanced Scriptwriting recently), but, surprisingly, it also disturbed me existentially on a couple of levels. First, while I like stories that problematize narrative, seeing narrative break down all together is frankly terrifying; it’s like witnessing a mass killing. And secondly, I’m worried that the show runners over at “Adult Swim,” tossing out content for stoned college kids to watch at 4am, are producing work of more conceptual richness and depth than myself or my peers. What to do? How to up my game?
