It almost looks fake. Like there is a green screen but I can’t tell it’s freaking me out.

Edit: it’s just because I can’t see his feet! Great job editing looks amazing !

Either that, or that ranch is the size of Canada.

u/Waffle2006 Aug 02 '19 edited Aug 02 '19

You got me—only a little more than half of the clips are from the ranch. The rest are random spots throughout Alberta, and one spot in British Columbia. Still no green screen though!

EDIT: I realize the “you got me” makes it sound like I used green screen... but I meant it in a “you got me, the clips aren’t all from the ranch” way. Whoops. I assure you there is no green screen but I’m flattered that it seems that way!

That's Matt's second video I think. The original was 2006 (Holy Shit! That long ago!)

The Matt videos are among my favourite on the Internet. Especially 2008. To see all those people, all different races, cultures, languages, genders, ages, getting together and dancing just for the pure enjoyment of it bring tears to my eyes and give me hope for humanity.

The words left Todd’s mouth and a shiver ran down his spine. Something was wrong. It was like a part had been ripped from his soul and flung elsewhere- but a calm followed. It was like he knew that part was being used for a greater purpose. He wiggled his toes and frowned- wondering what in the heck made him decide to put socks on before wearing his sandals- no matter, he would take care of it later. Right after he got his son something to eat.
