I’ve discovered this highly embarrassing gem from my dubious German past the other day:
In this sketch from 1994, my colleague Andre Grossman and I put on this production of a highly working class couple. I’m playing the mad mother, he’s my drunk husband.
We used to be fans of Schmidteinander, a cult comedy show on German Television back in the days, and at one point they were looking for submissions. The theme was “Blonde Mothers”, so Andre and I borrowed someone’s baby, filmed it with his Betacam (non-SP) camera in his kitchen and edited it at Studio Hamburg.
Needless to say, they never replied… probably because our production values weren’t low enough.

I love betacam sp. It jumps off of the screen. And you shot on betacam, not even sp.
Jay you actor you – excellent stuff
We aim to please 😉
Yes indeed, shot on standard Betacam! I remember it was difficult to get tape stock (never mind parents willing to give their baby to a total stranger dressed as a woman for two hours).
