Monty Python's John Cleese on Sarah Palin video

Monty Python and Faulty Towers John Cleese on Sarah Palin. Let humor be the cure. I hope this video brings those crazy republican lynch mobs to their senses. Oh wait, they don’t watch Monty Python. More preaching to the choir then. Hooray.

What does this have to do with TeamJaded? Well, I cut this video for Seesmic. So even though my name is no where on it, I’d like to point out… if I may… that I crafted this in edit… from raw footage… with no script. And even though that’s no great accomplishment like curing cancer or something, I wish my name was on it.

Top ten on digg with 126,000 Youtube hits as of this post and climbing, the name association could have been good for TeamJaded. (Youtube description anyone?)

With that said, this piece is also my farewell to Seesmic. Unfortunately, it’s a farewell that most Seesmic users won’t notice. Dean, the user who set up this shoot called me the invisible power behind Seesmic production. Flattering, but invisible doesn’t help Jaded out too much. So that is my one regret, otherwise I’m totally psyched about moving on.

Seesmic cut “shows” to focus on their web product. I think they made a smart decision. I enjoyed my time there. I learned a lot about the business side of internet, and a lot about video compression, but I was ready to go.

Now I’m gainfully unemployed, or as I like to think about it, free.

Free to pursue Jaded Multimedia after the wedding. …which is what I’ve been aching to do since Abby and I got back to San Francisco in January.

Stay tuned things are finally getting interesting.

    I took some screen shots of all the crazy sites and blogs it made it on, not to mention the front of Digg and Reddit, as well as Comedy Central. Well done.

    Awesome! can’t wait to see what you guys have in store for the future.

  3. Jeremey says:

    Whit, you should put the credits in the youtube description and our names in the tags. I’d love to see those screen shots. And well done yourself.

  4. Dean Whitbread says:

    Hey Jeremy – thanks for the credit but Deek Deekster is a pseudonym I invented in 1991. For this project (as with all such work) I use my parentally-donated monicker Dean Whitbread.

    BTW I totally agree with you about credits. I’ve asked for them to be added in full.

    Good luck in what you do and I hope we get to work on some more cool stuff in the future :)
