Blooper Reel Real Moments

The Blooper Reel Real Moments From Cooking With Barkin’ Dogs (Series) A Video By Jeanine Starring One Hapless Chef Co-Starring: My Kitchen, recipes, ingredients, brooms, dishes, blender, dogs, husband, oven mitts, knives, Siri and other assorted props. Category: Comedy Featuring Camera Assistance From Brendan Leftwich Cameos from Brendan and Curt Leftwich Ironically, the dogs are not barking in this outtakes video. So far I now have three videos in a series about cooking with barking dogs. You can check them out on our channel and read the description about them for more information about what led to this silliness. During filming a lot of unexpected things happened, and most of them are not in the original videos. Because they are either bloopers or make me look ridiculous and inept. These magic moments will be included in this first of two outtakes and blooper videos I have just made just for you. Creator Notes From Jeanine In the process of editing and choosing ratios and canvases, I am adjusting the 1:1 ratio with new canvases from my photo library. I hope you like the backgrounds and the first one will open with a banana background. Life is certainly bananas. Especially for me when I'm trying to film anything. The descriptions for/on my YouTube playlists “How Not To Do Stuff With Mama" and "Jeanine Doing Funny Stuff”, “Oh No Mama”, “Comedy’, “Food and Drink” and “Fun Stuff’ can give you some more information about what you are about to see. So you know that weird and wonderful funny stuff happens to me. I would like to thank EPIDEMIC SOUND and the two musicians whose songs you will hear in this video. "Keeping My Head In The Sand" by Speedy The Spider is perfect for this video. It is light, funny and appropriately creepy. I am sure that these musicians are a lot of fun to work with. Song 2 “Particular Clown" by Jon Björk was also appropriately creepy. It was a magical experience as I edited and added the music, almost as if these musicians were playing to my visuals. Please check out these artists if you enjoy the music as much as I did. Thank You to the Universe Divine! Thank You to my son Brendan for agreeing to hold the camera and film me for the first time! He inherited my funny gene and is inherently funny himself. I hope that he will do it again because the person on camera (in this case me) has much more freedom to move around and do stuff than with a standing light ring, and a remote control for the iPhone inside of it. Your check is in the mail Ben. PS! I need an assistant and will ask for one several times in this video. Are you available? (Location Los Angeles CA or we can go to the cabin in Big Bear Lake depending on What’s Happenin’) And do you think you can work with me? Video made with love by Jeanine

We Got Our Own Theme Songs Yay!

It’s About Time We Got Our Own Theme Songs Description By Mamas Executive Canine Assistant Ginny “Well, Well Mama! Well Done! You finally found our theme songs! Wow! They are so cool! Bree loves her song, Sully dances when he hears his and I guess mine is OK. My only tissue might be that it sounds a little “sneaky” or mysterious. Well, my song IS called “Mysterious Figures “ so I pup-🐶 suppose it should be kinda dramatic. Thank you J.F. Gloss for my new theme song! Mama, we nose that be-paws you are a musician 👩‍🎤 you get inspired by cool 😎 music 🎵. What? You want me to describe your new video? OK. Well, it’s really cool 🆒 We give it lottsa Paws 🐾 Up! That’s Pup-Speak for Thumbs 👍👍 Up. Probably cuz we star ⭐️ in it. Yup pups 🐩! The Three Amigos get to star in Mamas new video! My sister Ms. Bree is 12 years old now and getting “senile” (Mama said that, sorry Bree) so she should go first. And does so you will see her first and hear her new theme song. 12 may sound young to you, but in dog years she is considered an elder. Mama shares some cool memories about her life with Bree with you. I wasn’t here yet but I like the part where Pup Daddy Ben sings “Don’t You Want Somebody/Some Puppy to Love ❤️ “ when Bree was just adopted and was only 10 weeks old! And even though you always wanna make us look goofy 🤪 in your videos, butt it’s cool this time cuz it’s funny 😄 Her new theme song is: “Lullaby For My Dog” By Baegel. Yup Mama. I did check the spelling on that musician. It seems like it should be spelled BEAGLE instead. But thank you Mr Baegle too! And I reely love the music you chose for Silly Sully’s Section: “The Silly Walk” by Alexandra Woodward Thank You All Musicians! He is kind of silly and he's big and he's goofy, and he still knocks people down even though he doesn't mean to. But he’s my bro and I like to play with him. Even though he doesn't seem to understand the concept of "mine!" He thinks mine means his, and I nose that mine means mine! As in belongs to me Ginny. We all like treats and dog biscuits so you guys can see us getting treats. Mama is always learning more about making videos (maybe because she spends 16 hours a day making them!) and she just discovered how to make the speed go faster and slower! It’s kind of fun to watch my brother in slow motion and me go even faster than I normally do. Mama is very grateful to Epidemic Sound which she also recently discovered, and now has some really cool new music! We hope you enjoy our new theme songs and Mamas new video. Love, Ginny” Invoice For Description Services: 4 large dog biscuits, 1 rawhide bone, 2 Griller Treats and 9 Tasty Chicken Training Treat Bites. Due Now!

Cookin’ Chicken Soup With Jeanine

Cookin’ Chicken Soup With Jeanine And Dose Barkin’ Dogs Welcome Friends to my kitchen again. Back by popular demand is another entry in our new series: “Cooking With Barking Dogs". (Why this title? Because I cook and we have three dogs. Perfect. These dogs bark constantly. Not perfect. Sully, the biggest and loudest, has separation anxiety and anytime my son or husband leave the house even to go to the car, he is at the door, whining and barking and whining and barking. This usually happens when I need quiet for various reasons. Ginny, the smallest, youngest and biggest troublemaker also barks but will stop when I ask her to. Loudly. The worst offender is our eldest rescue pup The OG Ms Bree. Good Luck trying to film a video, any video, in your home when you have an older dog who seems to be exhibiting “Sundowners Syndrome” senility.) My husband wanted me to make my homemade chicken soup for dinner, so I graciously agreed to cook it for him. Of course I had an ulterior motive. I could set up my light ring and turn on the camera and make another video while graciously making chicken soup for my husband and my son. I must graciously and facetiously thank my son for the interruptions while filming. They may be included in a blooper version of this video. “Hey Mom!” This entire process was distracting enough with the dogs but made even more so by my son contributing to the kitchen chaos. I turn the camera on and off remotely at various points during this cooking adventure and then after reviewing everything I begin the process of editing. I'm not an editor, so I am still learning how to edit for the best experience for you guys so that you don't get too bored. And having recently discovered EPIDEMIC SOUND and the extensive library of music, I have been inspired to make more videos. I hope you enjoy the three songs I chose as background music to my on camera demonstrations. Thank you to: Alexandra Woodward for the song: “Knife Skills” A perfect choice for this video, and the song will play when I bring out the knives! Thank you musician Lopé for the song: “Cruising With You” Thank you to musician Alden for the song: “Colliding” All songs from the Epidemic Sound Creator Library Because it's me, you guys know that funny stuff happens every time I turn on the camera and get in front of it. Funny stuff happens pretty much all the time to me anyway so comedy is an important element on this video. One of these moments of spontaneous narration is mentioning foods my husband doesn't like so I add more of whatever it is. Hey, we have been married for 37 years so I can do that with relative impunity. You wives will understand. Please remember that I have no script, no camera person, no make up and hair department, no one to help me clean up and no personal assistant. ATT: Personal Assistants It is time for me to hire someone to help me with some of these jobs. Please contact me if you are in the Northridge, California area, may be interested and think you can work with me. Skills and a sense of humor are a must. With no script and only a general idea of what I might say and do, there are mistakes but there are also some wonderful spontaneous moments and I love to just go with the flow. Keeping in mind, there is always editing! This idea began as a concept to create some cooking videos for my channel. I am not a chef, but over the years I have spent a lot of time in kitchens all over the world. After my cousin saw the first one (when I made chili for the family), she was one of the first people to suggest I create more comedy kitchen videos. Thank you Denise. So instead of a specific tutorial on how to make these dishes with all the steps included, my version is comedy cooking. I'm not sure how many cooking videos there are but I'm assuming there are thousands if not millions of them. But how many will you see like this? I would love to know if you guys would prefer to see a more traditional cooking video or whether you enjoy this kind of kitchen comedy. Please leave a comment for me to help me create the best content for you guys. Because you guys are the reason I make these videos. So I have tried to include all of the steps and ingredients in between the marvelous moments with barking, sneezing, whining, growling dogs in the background. Bon appétit!

Cookin’ Chili 🌶️ With Barkin’ 🐕 Dogs 🐩

Cookin’ Chili 🌶️ With Barkin’ 🐕 Dogs 🐩 Welcome to Episode Two in our new series “Cooking with Barking Dogs”. I cook and we have three dogs. Perfect. These dogs bark constantly. Not perfect. Sully, the biggest and loudest, has separation anxiety and anytime my son or husband leave the house even to go to the car, he is at the door, whining and barking and whining and barking. This usually happens when I need quiet for various reasons. Ginny, the smallest, youngest and biggest troublemaker also barks but will stop when I ask her to. Loudly. The worst offender is our eldest rescue pup The OG Ms Bree. Good Luck trying to film a video, any video, in your home when you have an older dog who seems to be exhibiting “Sundowners Syndrome” senility. Bree (The Alleged Perpetrator) barks incessantly at everything and nothing. Because/Be-Paws 🐾 I film footage for my videos at home, I find that more than frequently there will be a distracting barking sound in the background. It is hard enough when I am going to be on camera without a script, without hair and make up, without a camera operator and without assistance or assistants to record the visuals and audio. And narrate and demonstrate whatever it is I'm doing without a script. So you don't really need unwanted additional noise on your sound recording or as has happened, dogs walking through the shot and ruining the take. But perhaps it is precisely because I am "winging it" and enjoy being "on the edge" and as an actor have some training in improvisation and comedy, these sort of un expected distractions can actually work in your favor. Especially if you are going for comedy. Although it may be amusing to hear a nutty old dog barking and ruining her mamas work, after listening to this noise on a day to day/hour to hour basis one could lose one's mind. After the relative success of Episode One in this series: “Making An Omelette With A Barking Dog ", I was encouraged to get back in the kitchen and do some more comedy recipe sharing. I made this new video yesterday on Super Bowl Sunday as I was making chili for my boys. We got yer chili here and comedy with cornbread and of course barking dogs. I filmed all afternoon and have a lot of footage. But fortunately, for you, I have learned how to play with speeds when editing, so instead of 20 minutes having to watch me cut and brown an onion, the process goes by fairly quickly. I am really trying to keep my videos on the shorter side at 3 minutes ideally, but under five minutes hopefully. Now, if I could only keep my descriptions, a reasonable length as well, we'd be really cooking! In this new episode you will meet my sous chefs and costars, the barking dogs on camera. And if you are truly interested in the recipe and the cooking process rather than the barking and the comedy, let me know, and I will be happy to share the longer version! Live! Love! Bark!
