I’m posting this while wearing a power rangers t-shirt that says “Stay in school” with the green ranger giving a thumbs up. There are also saved-by-the-bell inspired confetti shapes on it. It’s pretty much as 90s as you can get. Unless you add in that right now I’m editing a show that’s going to be airing on YTV, Canada’s youth network and pretty much every Canadian 90s kid’s favourite channel for cartoons, shows, and witty VJs (or “PJs” as they called them). I remember racing home after school to watch Phil and Paul in the Zone, with Snit, the TV… and if you weren’t a kid in Canada in the 90s and your reading this, I’m sorry. But you missed out.
So, working on a show that’s going to be airing on that channel sometime this fall is making my inner child jump for joy. Also, I am working on almost all the first season, so that is awesome! The show is called “Tricked“, and while it is based on a British show of the same name, this version features Canadian magician Eric Leclerc doing street magic and hidden camera tricks in Vancouver (I’m starting to get giddy when I recognize places). So far, I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. I know I loved trying to figure out how magicians did tricks when I was a kid, and while I can say the show does have some more simple ones, some of the bigger ones have me scratching my head– and I can go back and re-watch it over and over!
When it airs, I’ll throw up a link.
