Hard to believe it’s been another year. Well, that’s misleading. Footnotes has only been on the air since July. But that doesn’t mean we can’t compile a blooper episode. It’s less labor-intensive for Matt anyway.
We spend about an hour shooting each episode, of which we use between three and four minutes of material. The rest of the time is Matt making fun of the crew, the crew making fun of Matt, and him botching his lines. Mostly, it’s him botching his lines. As you might have noticed in this blooper reel.
