I don’t know why nobody has come up with this idea earlier, or maybe they have and just realised how stupid it was. And while it is kinda stupid, it’s also quite impressive and funny at the same time. So what is? Well, someone actually went along to use just the Back-Up camera in their Toyota Prius to make a feature film. At least, that is what it appears like, but I don’t think that it is entirely true.

The Mommy Sketch Comedy group of Los Angeles, CA released a new YouTube video that appears to be a behind the scenes of the first feature film shot entirely on Prius backup camera. I do however think that the video is all we get in this regards, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t funny to watch. It might even give someone the idea to do just that for real. After all, we have seen films created entirely with iPhone’s and other similar gadgets, so why not a Prius Back-Up camera.

The Mommy Sketch group consists of Andrew Heder as a writer, director and improviser and Ryan Kelly as a writer, director, editor, and improviser. Other than this sparse info, the group doesn’t provide much information on themselves. The do have more videos around, but they aren’t that many yet. The group appears to be relatively new with the YouTube channel just about a half-year-old.

The 6 minute behind the scenes video will teach you how to frame your shots from the backseat, how to deal with a crew member suffering from a donut-induced coma, and how to avoid running your cast over. All relevant skills to have, at least in this case. I won’t spoil more of it before you watch it except to say, I hope you don’t have a fear of directors wearing scarfs.
