“Always keep in the funny.”
That's some sage editorial wisdom that was passed down to me by another editor, and I've taken it to heart ever since.
If you can keep a joke, a laugh, a chortle or even a snort-inducing giggle in the edit, then do all you can to keep it in.
It will keep people watching, make a human connection and probably make the whole project better overall.
To end 2023, I thought I'd share some of my favourite funny things from the past year.
There's not a lot to say about these, but I hope you get a laugh out of them and appreciate their evident creative joy!
See you on the other side, and thanks for reading in 2023!
