"Customer? What problem they having will solution, and you can provide and help us early on start thinking about some of those topics and preparing people that they should be on our radar right through. But you know what you're describing, which I love is now we're talking about the part of product management development never sees true right? It's all the stuff that happens before hand. Yeah Right. So before I if I in the in the planning work that I do with teams, you know before we get into backlog and you know features and stories in any of that nonsense, it's way. What is this thing that we're building? Who is it for who is going to use it? Who was going to buy it where the cost GONNA come from? Where's the revenue GONNA come from? You know what is the the fundamental business that we're building here and what I find in most organizations is they actually have too many ideas. So a business canvas ORLEAN canvas give us a good apples to apples comparison that we can say you know what here are eleven things we WANNA do yeah. Let's identify which one or two we can do with the resources we have now and then we're ready to start moving further ed you may now that I'm a part of an initiative called the the courts framework courts open framework I said it wrong the courts open framework. And it it basically is just a simple planning metaphor of you know before you start describing things. Spend time doing discovery. You know spin personal face to face time with real people who are likely to buy your product and understand their problem, and then before you get into personas and priorities and story. So get commitment from your leadership team that says, yes if you know, I think that's a really good idea. I authorize you to go forward and waste other people's time because the next step is for me, you know flesh out that business plan or that that canvas into maybe the next level of detail I'm going to have to talk to the VP of sales vp of marketing development and. Let's get a commitment to that before we move down into stories and personas and use scenarios and acceptance criteria, and while development is creating and you know product managers and product owner certainly spend a great majority of their time in working with development during the creation. But guess what we've got to be thinking about how to launch it to. The end of development I like to say releases the end of development, but launches beginning of marketing. And those are two different things. So if the product manager is also responsible for launching than, they have to start preparing for delivery to the market and empowering the sales and marketing team to connect with the market and as we connect with the market guess what we discover more..

"ATP players, Steve Johnson talking about all the advice he's gone from other at Dad's keep listening. You mentioned that your friends is always American guys that your wedding was. One big tennis crazy party and everyone got to unite because I know we have a another. American getting married this year in December Still Jack sock. So tennis weddings seemed to be like a happy reunion. It's interesting I. I wouldn't say too many tennis people were invited to my wedding I mean tennis people from the tour I want to like make anybody angry but you know it's Like my you know my closest friends, you know Sam, John Dennis crude lower. All groomsmen Bradley Lawn and a lot of other coaches are are people that have helped. Get me there you know a lot of my teammates from USC were there but now I don't know I. You know it's just interesting how people kind of gravitate towards one way or the other, and it's also tough our schedules getting tennis people to Anything in the middle of the year when you know there's terms going on. So But it was It was fun. You know just to kind of get everybody out of. Environment into a different one to have fun kind of kick back and no pressure and just have fun. And now it's interesting because like everything has changed so much and you had this big break from tennis to be normal and to you could've you could've gone a weddings at weddings were allowed, but they're not obviously it are you looking forward to things getting back to normal? I think we're not really anywhere near normal but do you are you excited for that? Even though you had this, you must enjoy your break. Yeah. You know it's interesting because there's certain. Aspects that you really want to get back to normal, and then there's certain aspects that you don't want to get back to normal You know I didn't mind not traveling for for the last three months kind of thing but I also, you know enjoyed being at home like taking the bikes out and riding having dinner down, you know wherever you know where we live and and what you you also couldn't do at the time. So it was interesting to. You know yes some aspects were good. All right. Like I'm I'm not like a Social Butterfly where I wanna go out and you know go to bars and stuff but going out to dinner or going out to wherever is. Definitely, something I still WanNa do you know so it's it's one of those things where you're you know. You gotta take the good with the bat on some of them. Do, you feel comfortable. I mean you've been in top hundred and established the top for so long do you feel comfortable and like settled and as someone who's the top of the game or is that feeling of like still trying to strive and make it and keep getting higher never go away Never want a yeah you I. Don't think you ever want to be comfortable You always want to continue to get better and I think that's maybe the. The most important quality you can have any athlete regardless of sport and regardless of what your ranked or what your your places in the world you always want to continue to get better and better. You know you look at Roger and Rafa and these guys have been at the top for so long they continue to get better and better at their game in their craft and. That's what makes them. Better, they don't get complacent they don't you know think we made it were good. They WANNA make it in stay there. So that's kind of how I feel like. I, feel comfortable being in the top one, hundred I. You know I feel comfortable going to these big events and all these events were you know ten, seven, eight, ten years ago I was so new. I was nervous and now I feel very comfortable. But I, still want to go out there every day improve myself until you know whenever that last day may come. was there ever a time 'cause from someone looking out from the outside on your life and your career it looks like things went very smoothly. You know you junior career USC college top hundred top thirty everything. was ever a time where you didn't think maybe tennis was for you has always been very clear. No, it's you know. There's always there's always moments where you question probably everything in your life and I've had a few of those on the tour. You Know Twenty I dunno, thirteen twenty, fifteen, twenty, six around there. It's like I had a few moments where it was like all right time to hang them up and you need to get away from tennis for six months and reevaluate everything and it's like you know, let's maybe take it easy. You know you've had a bad two or three months it's not the end of the world. But sometimes, you're so immersed in your own. You know wins and losses and. It cloud your judgment on the overall big picture, and so it's it's been tough. I've had some some hard lessons to learn. I've had some some tough phone calls to make. You know sometimes, you know the people that love you the most kind of make sure they telling you the truth rather than what you WanNa hear and you know it kind of kicks you kitchen the in the right direction I think. That makes perfect sense. Yeah that a few of those tough phone calls I think you know maybe we'll laugh about it. We laugh about an hour with you know my mom or coaches and stuff and just kind of funny where you know. You can't believe somebody said to you but you know what they need to say the time and you know It is what it is probably not probably not PG for this podcast I. Love the honesty though because you always think that some players especially someone like us done so well for from my opinion I remember we're the same year. So I've always known your name from college tennis and even when we were younger I, always thought like things seem to be going so well for him at all times and I'm like I've always wondered if there's even dark moments hard moments for players that are the top hundred that are. It's not you know. Yeah. Even Roger doesn't have you know trajectory of straight. You know you know greatness you know he was. You know he was a young guy once who has kind of flat not floundering Scott that's a bad word to use Roger. But you know early in his career, you know early early when he was seventeen eighteen nineteen, not quite maybe hitting his. Potential at that time, obviously, he figured it out since then but you know it's I i. think every tennis player has moments of doubt and questioning kind of a lot of things. But they gotta you know believe in themselves and have that self driving self worth to to go out there and just put on the line every day when you look back. Now. You're nowhere near Dunwoody you look back. Is there certain highlight that stands out to you from your Curie for me I? Think there's a couple you know I mean in college you know winning the team and championships are always you know I'll always look back with you know rate Great Memories and then on the tour winning my first title was Every title had something different. You know for me all the four that I've had in singles and You know I can kind of tell you what each of them you know. How you know what was kind of there at the time happening and you know it's you know I can look back on all four those extremely fondly, where do you keep your rings? You get rings for each one you win right team individual or just out know for both. So I think they're I think they're downstairs at the house in like bring case. I you know I've probably all I've probably worn them like once you know the tae we get him you know at USC get him on the football field and you know you think you're you know King of the world and you know whatever but You know. But after that you know I'm glad we lost him in those..

"So nice try I mean it's those are all you know for for other people talk about. So for me, I, just know enjoy what what I, what I've gained from that from from USC in a in a friends and family standpoint. So for me that's you know it's something that I'll always have with my teammates and everything, but it's something I never WanNa ever you know bring up or talk about to be honest. and La. So is this where you grew up as well as where you've been your whole life I grew up in orange. County. So just south of Los, Angeles didn't want to leave you know southern California. In my life. So got very lucky in going to USC and playing for Peter Smith was was always the goal since I can remember kind of growing up and then got lucky my wife from Manhattan beach. So we're. We're not. We're not leaving. You know Manhattan beach the South Bay anytime soon you know were I think we'll be there for the rest of our lives I hope you know unless something crazy happens. So that's kind of a never leave southern California I don't think in my life. So us was always the goal you are never considering jumping into the pro tour at eighteen. Oh No, you know no shot you know I was. I was good eighteen year old but I wasn't that good. You know I mean I wasn't you know if you're eighteen and you're. Cracking the top hundred or getting close like you know there's a big difference from where I was. You know so I needed to learn a lot learning. You know how to be a pro adult. You know how to live life on your own you know there's a lot of things. You know I had to learn in college in some learned the hard way and some came a little a little bit easier. But all those experiences I think helped me get to where today was there anything surprising about going to college USC were you weren't really expecting it because I mean obviously did well in the court but anything off the court that through you dorms or the food or training know anything just like I think everything. Because I lived at home my whole life. So you know it's a little different when your mom and dad kind of helping you with you know whatever it may be. You know laundry travel dinner you know all the little things that you just take for granted I. Think you know when you're when you're an adult, you kinda have to make all these decisions on your own and sometimes you know what you think is the. Right, decision at the time you look back and think it was you know maybe you could have done something a little different a little bit better, and so you have to learn those lessons. You know sometimes the hard way and hopefully only once. But you know what I learned in college was just matured a lot I grew up. You know gave me a chance to be an adult and be okay on my own. Have you thought about whether you want your daughter or even more future children to play tennis? Yeah. I I don't think. So to be honest I know that may not be a popular opinion amongst of tennis players but. I don't know you know I love tennis I. Think what it gives kids is is incredible. You know from a standpoint of character and everything because you're out there by yourself, you need to be honest to be trustworthy you need to be disciplined. You know I think it creates a lot of that but I also know what it was like for me being a kid sometimes how Frustrating and how? Different it was not having a team. You know not having anybody out there with you in how lonely that can be at at certain times. So you know if they wanNA play tennis you know you'll never You know steer them in the other direction. You know because you're going to let them do whatever they want. But hopefully, golf for something else you know that maybe I can squeeze out there with them and you know kind of you know use it as A. You know as a as a backdoor way to kind of continue my golf. Habits. Sam Query is baby. We have Mike Brian's baby jake. View interacted. Have you seen them? What's the thought of having a baby on tour? It's definitely different you. I've seen a lot of it just being you know an observant bystander through the years of the American guys. Now they've traveled and how it's worked John of course, having to babies now but it's been fun. You Know Sam is one of my closest friends and flew here with with abby and Ford, and you know you know was with them the other day while was playing you know kind kinda holding forward and you know it's it's interesting. 'cause I just you know it's I think. Five years ago have freaked out having a baby in my hands but you know just with my sister having a baby, my wife sister having a baby like you get more comfortable with it, and now you know I'm really looking forward to starting family my own and You know that's that's you know that's the first and most important thing for me. You know going forward this year is still like a little bit terrifying the the changes that are coming Oh. Yeah. Because I mean at this point you know. I can screw up my life. You know it's it's okay. But you know you don't want to screw up somebody else's life that you're responsible for. So there's a lot of pressure I feel like but hopefully, you know I know my wife, all steer me in the right direction and you probably taking some notes here watching little forward and jake running like being carried around not running around yet but. It's like a little zoo the babies out here. There's a great know because everybody's close and you know I I don't know what maybe you know what happens when when you become a mom or dad you know I think everybody kind of you know bands together and they're all in this together kind of thing. So it's It's been fun to see you know. But just to see how you know Sam's Johns and people that I'm extremely close with how their lives have changed. Since. For,.

"You I'm one of your hosts Nina Pantic joined by Irene Falconi Hyena a how's it gone? So are episode. This week features Steve Johnson. He has been a top ranked. American. For a long time he was a former USC four time NCAA champion he's awesome. I caught up with him at World Team tennis like the past few episodes. But before we get into that interview, let's talk US Open. So US coming up real quick in New York City obviously. But the biggest news is all of the withdrawals were missing I think one, two, three, five, top ten women as well as a couple of top ten men including Rafa. Irena, are you surprised by the withdrawals? What? What does all looking to change up to be for you? On a see, I'm not really surprised of the draws I think a lot of girls are for health reasons deciding not to come, but a lot of them I mean. It's hard to go straight into a slam. I tournament back I mean, there are some players not a ton but some players in that you know main draw acceptance lists at probably haven't played a match five months and I match back boom US Open with. Global pandemic going on having to stay in a bubble. It's not the Grand Slam News. US. Open feel that most players are used to that caliber so I'm not really surprised but to be honest, I wouldn't be like very shocked if I see five to seven more by the time us open, rolls. Around. Agreed as of right now, players are rolling into New York for the western Southern Open. We've seen a bunch of players posting about it on instagram a little bit of an inside look at the bubble, and there was a meeting recently USA press conference. He talked about these things called tears. So it's new to us I mean obviously you and I haven't been in a regular tournament yet tier one is the players it involves thousand people, which is kind of nuts to me but includes the term staff players, guests, and the medical teams tier two broadcasters they have limited interaction with players tier three is a staff of the actual us. National Tennis Center, which is like security parking vendors. Arena. You are going to be a commentator. You fall into tier two right now not here one where you're maybe hoping to get into what's your status who you're working for? What are you gonNA be doing. So. Yeah. Super Exciting. I'm actually going to be commentating. World feed kinda nervous kind of like super pumped about it. I. Love Commentating I really love the sport and the fact that I know pretty much every single girl on the tour and some of the guys on the ATP tour a feel like I have an in per se But yeah as of now you're to it is let's see. We you still got a little bit of time before i. First Ball is hit but I'm currently thirteen out. So who knows a lot of stuff would have to happen for me to become tier one person so yeah I'm just kind of crossing my fingers to see what happens but I will be going to New York and I'm super excited like I saw a few videos of the top golf that that they were able to set up. You know that like Oh. Goodness like it's in the actual hotel I, the simulator Brenda. Yeah. I think it's very smart of the USDA to do that for players because I wouldn't be surprised if some of them start feeling like the walls are coming in a little bit and you know certain little stir crazy when you know you can't leave the room. So yeah, we're just kind of waiting to see what happens now. There's two main hotels, the US Open one of them is the Marriott. That's the one you mentioned with the Gulf. So it's one hundred percent US Open only. So there's a Jayme Recovery Room Arcade Game Room Golf Simulator something called a sports simulator outdoor lounge food trucks. It sounds kind of awesome but you're still not allowed to leave. You're not allowed to go to the city. It's kind still very weird. Reminds me a little bit maybe if the World Team Tennis. Greenbrier. Bubble. It's a good attempt, not exactly the same, but it's all you know all signs point the tournament happening, which is the whole point here the strangers thing for you your thirteen out you're ready to go to new. York you're setting up as if you could play might not play you need no four days before obviously for the quarantine situation, very go with the flow moment for you in your career i. don't even know how you're doing this but the weirdest thing is like. Hypothetically, you could be on site. And could be six out and Monday rolls around August thirty first. But they're not gonna put you in if someone pulls out for whatever reason they need pull out lucky losers are going to be taken from the doubles field. What's your take on that because like you literally would be there ready to go kind of I. I would be curious to see what would happen if they actually have singles alternates that were in the you know. Alternate lists. They are tested. They're all good in regarding like, Hey, I'm safe I'm I'm negative we're good I wonder if they would still take a player that's in the doubles draw I mean I can understand for liability and insurance purposes they want to make sure that someone's like Legitimately. I don't know to be honest. That's one that. I'm not really thrilled about because I know that there's some players that are going to end up being one or two AL and imagine being one or two out playing in the US Open I mean Never GonNa get a chance I don't think to be ranked. Hundred and you know thirty forty something and be able to get into the main draw of the US Open directly not with a wildcard or anything like that. Exactly having opportunity and then just mean like actually, no, we're GONNA give it to a doubles player that hasn't been playing singles. Kinda Rosny the wrong way I will admit but you know what? The Ucla knows what they're doing on the fact that they're able to come up with a tournament Grand Slam during global pandemic props to them. Exactly but it is definitely a little bit weird. You ranked one fifty, five year protected ranking I. Mean you're going to be on site I I'm excited to see how this all plays out. It's All the unknown, this new normal is so confusing and bazaar, and we're all just kind of trying to figure it out, and the whole thing is to work together for the best possible outcome we'll see what happens but we have stevie Johnson as our guest. For this episode, he's playing the western and southern open and the US. Open. In New York the most exciting thing about this interview was you talk about his baby? A child on the way a daughter with his wife Kendall and I, think it's going to affect his career quite a bit. He sounds like he really just wants to be at home and spend quality time with his wife and future child next year that's going to hear from Steve Johnson at one point he says, his dream is to live happily ever after his family in Manhattan beach and I, was like, can I come? Let's jump into our interview with Stevie Johnson. Support for this podcast comes from cdw on. Dell? Technologies.

"In I. Think someone like Rafa obviously was. Very, much impact by Uncle Tony. but you know I'm sorry. Uncle Tony's not gonNa make the greatest player one of the greatest players of all time out of every player. He's coach. You know it's A. It's this great meeting. Of You know talent in. Ashes and then you. Yeah, and then you provide that environment that a coach can give and then your chance at greatness. And tell me speaking of like the journey and enjoying the journey, and it's not about the endpoint. You of players who retired, do they? Miss. The grind under I'm going GONNA. Use The word to grind grind on the tour. I think what they miss is two things I. Think they miss the Camaraderie? And a there's a real come broderie on a team. Obviously, and there's a real camaraderie in the locker room on the pro tour, and in the the players eating area I think a lot of guys are happy to see each other, and I think they really miss the competition. You know you know if you're talking to a forty year old guy who used to compete you know that that competition. Having that feeling. You know that's something. I always really enjoyed and and and still really lot of enjoyment. When Right now I'm coaching Steve Johnson and Sam Query. If if they're playing a match, I was watching their matches last week on TV. You know that feeling of like okay, this is. I have a piece of this I have impacted this player. Maybe it's. A very little amount may, but I have helped. Set the stage for this, and so they are. Representing a little portion of me. And! How is that GONNA go? And so you know when that's out there for the world to see, that's exciting. It's really exciting in so that's that's competition and you know as a coach. You know that's something you relish, and and really enjoy and detained. That's why so many do so well. The business world like the guy you've had the guys on the team who haven't gone pro ended concentrate in New York to to work and finance on so. So many talk college players seem to do so well in the business world I think they're doing better now I think. When I was younger, they weren't going in the business for a weren't getting the great education that a lot of them are getting out, but you know I have my middle son Riley, Smith? Who you know was a is a fine player. Two time all American at SC got to the Finals A. The US Open lost up Oh and Felix. But, he's had some success and you don't. He's studying to get his masters in accounting business at USC right now and you know he is maturing to the point where he's getting competitive in these accounting classes, and he said in that convenience amazing, so when these guys go into business, they need to turn that competitive spirit that they had tennis into the business world, and if they can make that. Transition and translation into another avenue. which business then they can kill it. And I think employers. If I was an employer, I would be looking at athletes I because they know how to focus and they know how to compete. And those are, that is key in the business world. Very true, we've had quite a few. Our players, states and on scholarship and get. Quite good universities and they always tend to once a dunk pros into business and spend a handful. They've done extremely well of various ages, so it's great to see them as you say, convert competitive energy from the tennis court into the work life so many opportunities here in the states, it's so many international taken advantage of it and. I loved coaching international players because they understood the opportunity in front of them more so than the American kids I can see that. And also what you just mentioned Jerry you're soanes. You tree stones to you coach them. One is currently at USC woes. It like coaching. Your son's in the team environment. Well, you know I said all the time. It was ninety five percent joy and five percent. Share Hell. You know it's A. It's a tricky balance because you're coaching team I was very hard on my son's. But you know I was I'd be hard on. A lot of players in expected a lot of players, but I never did it out in front and I. Wouldn't say I was perfect in that regard, but my goal was never to. Embarrass or mean a player ever. And certainly in front of his teammates, but you know sometimes I probably should have been a little tougher on my kids in front of their teammates so they could see that that expectation I had for them, but you know ninety five percent sheer joy was a pretty good one winning national championships. Seeing, kids become successful. Watching boys turned into men. Were all just incredible experiences that I've felt over thirty two years. but you know having that relationship with my kids. Through tennis was exceptional, an eight I. Really dreamed of having them on my team. But when they wanted to come to USC you, know I was. Not Certainly, not going to stand in their way and you know it's it's enabled us to have this incredibly close relationship. that we have to this day, but I coach to them the third one colder you know was a freshman. This year will be a sophomore next year..

"But at the end of the day it's the player at it's the Serb or the return, the passing shot or the volley, so you know the players players win championships period so recruiting the right players mentoring them helping them. Get into that position. Deva chance to be successful. You know that that's a coach's responsibility, but in the end it's the players, so I was incredibly fortunate to have. Incredible players play from. that you know I think I, provided a great environment for and hopefully environment that help them. Be Successful. True but you say it's the players as you mentioned there is. Recruited players. You GotTa seldom the story, and of obviously you're very good at that. Be Able to recruit some great players to see great players. These guys are going to be good here. Is that you not going to be good or you're taking a cha a big chance on them I mean I think there's always a leap. There's a leap of faith for the player, and there's a leap of faith for the coach, and you know I. Always said it was never a business deal. It was more of a marriage. You know you can't have it all together and there's got to be trust and there's got to be. You know people communicating and doing all those sorts of things that makes relationships successful and You know I I never thought I was good recruiter I try to always just be incredibly honest and straightforward and tell them the pluses and minuses. And some kids buy into that and some kids want that and some don't and some. Want, maybe something different, but they still come. You know it's. It's. Not. Every player you have is. Like Steve Johnson or any of the other? You know hundreds of successful kids that I've had but you know hopefully you're. You're kind of winning more battles in your losing on the recruiting front. But when you have such a powerful place like USC or really any of the other schools in what the schools are offering, you know if you get a full scholarship or good scholarship to school like Fresno State. That's a huge win and you know kids. Are! They're starting to see the value of education because. Opportunities or drying up on the pro tour but yeah, those those guys. All took a chance on me and you know. I in turn took a chance on them, and just really happy at worked out for both of us, and you just want to have more wins than losses. Success stories than not success stories, but you know it's. It's never perfect and tell me what made June so successful at college. The four years he had thereof Z. was national champ every year. Keep like many players would have just one one national champion gone pro as has happened. He stayed on for two four, which was amazing. Why think you know watching Stevie play last weekend in Atlanta? Win, Steve Competes for a team. He's a team guy and you know what he's just a different person, and he needs a real reason to play the bigger the reason the more. He rises up and he's not someone that feels the need to. Do it for himself, so he has a chance to do it for others than things. Don't bother them. You know there are always issues you're going to have. In a day in a match and Stevie is was able to overcome that, and and really he was the best competitor I ever saw you know when he played for me at USC. It was incredible. He was really just you name the athlete. It was given the ball. He's.

We don't know so. We'll see what what the future holds. I really hope the tour can start up with Washington, and they can put this the correct safety protocols in place her, and really for the most part. Just get everyone back working because it's this huge industry. That supports lot of different people, and you know not only the players, but you know the TV crews in the tournament organizers and you know so many people involved in running the kind of tournaments they play. Definitely a lot of people are on the sidelines. Waiting for things to pick up with a wasn't a plan to touch on this subject in this interview which you would. What is your thoughts on term star embark on hold procedures that are in place, player team sizes, and what's happened in Croatia, wit Novak, and now the case in the states as well with Francis Ooh. What are your general thoughts on? I think you know this. A lot of sports are starting up I. Think it can be done if you put this correct safety procedures in place, you know I'm not gonNA comment on. On what happened, you know over in in Europe but I know Atlanta. They put a lot of safety precautions in place, but you know still. They learned a lot. We learned a lot from you know what happened in. Serbia and I think they've learned even more with Atlanta. <hes> I think the mistake they made in Atlanta was. They tested all the guys? Guys, but they didn't test them the day before so obviously. Francis did not get covid from the tournament because it happened on the first day, <hes>. It just doesn't happen that quickly, so he had been tested <hes> i. think a week before, and so you know they just need to test I. Don't know if it's daily, but they should definitely test everyone. When they arrived to the tournament and <hes>, but other than that. You Walk Away I. Mean I think it's A. It's actually a great lesson that someone had code and we'll see, but it appears. At this point, and maybe it's too early. Say that no one else got it also so. If no one else gets covid I think that's a victory that they had some in there that had it and it didn't spread. So again, it's probably too early to save for sure, but I know. Stephen Sam have been tested repeatedly since that day last Friday and again it's too early to say for sure, but so far they've they've tested negative, and so has everybody all the participants

I got one more question out someone, okay you wanna question help someone? I got two more. This is done. One is from this. You can ask the quickly in the last one from me. I can't answer anything burry establish that. Well, let's see here. I'll put a challenging until you right here. Not generic one. This is from Robert Martinez. Robber Martinez is a huge fan of fright night. And he wants to know what was the hardest of that. You had to do in this movie. Interestingly enough. The cancer question this character the scene, right here, the Billy bones character stab Nonni knows if he's vampire aware of a goal or whatever if You's gay if you want true because a lot of people that he's Jerry damages lead vampires gay lower. This sequence was very difficult for a lot of reasons. But most of owns this, the guy that I put in jobs. I don't do all the stuff on himself fifty people show. The guy that I put in charge of his affect. Kilns himself like a week before we shot this. While I found his dead body in any team worse. It's even worse because he was on. We're all doing a lot of cocaine but the role was no eighth, many of the why not. Don't do broken kids. So, but with the rule was not that onset you late night child whenever confuse the process at least back then. Came very fuel got wonders. And so he didn't show up for this foreign, call one of my best friend very refunding Orrin call in a really about situation. So as looked on. Miss the stories in our to actually. I don't see this thing fire ever in that position. But I'm a take you off this project until you straight now will bring you on the next pungent and what it is one home and killed himself. And so I've found his body in ignition apartment at two in the morning a week later. And then we have to shoot this thing basically that deterioration looked like my friend. We had people team members like getting in the cars spending out sobbing said his so does that answer the question. So the hardest thing had to work on his movie was a suicide to answer your question in, and I guess, to reiterate he had to find the body decomposing. So, yeah, man, never never never dull moment with you. Right. No. Again, this is fascinating this kind of stuff. I don't want, you know, you've special effects is great and I'd like to talk about in relation to other things, but she's slept a pass such an experience with Hollywood in general, man.

"steve johnson" Discussed on Never Not Funny
"Because I realized for some reason I did more blowjobs jokes that I've ever done in my career at that point that I was like what am I doing? I'm sure my dad's real proud of this. My Deborah church group. Probably proud of my son. Comedian from television, fellas. Here. I am you know, those guys suck to dick. And then this guy suck suck. And dick. But it was very very nice. We a great never not funny fans. As always we. Thank you guys for coming out. And supporting them we Saturday at the great the long running fantasy baseball league him in the draft. Go I've never been more happy with the team in my entire drafting career market down guys. And you put that through the whatever machine it is that lets, you know, if we, you know, like a if nothing changed if other projections worked out what place you got to come in fifth. Really don't understand it. I literally was like there's only two times or I should have went a dollar more on a player. And I didn't there was like damn that was a mistake. Or I went one time. I did go to that dollar more. It was like I should have let that guy go. So that only happened three times the rest of it was I got every guy wanted I got him at the price. I thought he deserved like it was wonderful. And then at the end like, okay. Well, here's what it says. Steve Johnson's to come in. I I was like mother fucker Steve Johnson. Oh was coming. I know who's the guy that is held up NGO is I'm in. I many many times though, I'm thinking of the isn't Steve Johnson. Also in the number enough runs. The democrat funny league. Yes. And is he he does. Well, in that doesn't he I think he does well in both. But I don't know Steve's ever one. Okay. So the question I have for you is how is this going to affect play for this coming? What do you mean by that does because because you looked at like what your ideal thing? Your ideal team is going to be I would draft the same team. I'm not kidding. So it's so it isn't really about. Is it still about winning because you think the predictions are wrong? I think that I could be wrong. I think that prediction CB wrong. It'd be your mic. My guys can do better than they have doing your guys could do worse. Vice versa. Someone could get an injury and right into everything that changes the whole playing field. It wasn't happy with that. Boy that thinks burgeon thing away. That's how bad that was just eat him back to even. So then what the fuck we would do. Hey, you're up you're up one. But it was a. Yeah. So we gotta talk about that. By the way, we have to get you. I didn't know what closed to the public been made aware that Elliott is the auction near. Yeah. I. Paul polo had NGO happens to be in both. Yeah. And pulse men and that other league for I want to say close to twenty years. Now, it hasn't been going on for twenty six years.

"I think there's only one scene that occurred precisely didn't story board, which was the which funds the seen in the convenience store and I didn't. I wanted that went to the kind of improvised on spun the at the location, and I think it worked out real well. And I think the very end was a little Elise slobby and all the helmet loose. But in general it was it was very, we never went over. You never had a problem with doing things within the time. It was really a well run production. And and thought it really worked well all then Clark was so good in as the the doom witty has bizarre me. You know, all the different secondary characters were great. So that will be really has a lot of harder, you know, as a lot of heart by the end of it, it. I think it's one of the better Gandhi movies, one of the top ten. That's another one where just the makeup effects on Melinda Clarke are so great. Yeah, that was Steve Johnson you. We had like five or six different make affects teams on that movie, and you know, it was always been kind of the philosophy. I kind of early on the bell about the facts, which kind of runs counter to what most no budget filmmakers that have to use facts thing. Usually there's. This idea that that you should take what little money you have and give it all the one company. So it'll amount to something. So it'll seem like more and have them do every because they feel like you can't just if you divide it up because it gets too small, but I always gotten. I've always thought that. Different companies in different affects hardest have different strengths and you don't wanna get screaming men George to do or affects, for example, that's not as it's not as strange, you know, he needs to do weird stuff and then some people are and then so everybody has different types of stuff they can do. If I had a affects, I usually have an effect coordinator supervisor. In this case, I had a guy named Tom Nonni and he is really into it, and he was the one that would interface with all the effect size me. But we did as we broke the effects out into certain into certain groups of affects that fit together. So and then find the adequate person to do it, and some affects you can get. There's no reason to hire a big time artists. Or a big time company because it's not that difficult in effect, and they're not going to be very challenged by it. But if you get some young guy, that's never gotten a credit before we're just trying to get his company going well, they will put their all into it because they need to showcase their word and this is a big chance for it. So they will go way overboard. And the cost is not gonna be the determining factor. Whereas if you go to to a big company like like the or something, well, they do ever. You know, there's nothing you're gonna, give them to the big, big, big challenge. You know there were like the industry standard type of thing, but Tom Renault even, you know, the river man in his metal cage, exodus goatman. We Renault knee at this guy that that didn't really do it back. He was like a welder. So he made real steel frame. It was just it was cutting into poor. I forget the name of the actor. Now, remember, man was suffering and you know, cut into them. So normally the way you would do that is you would car the pieces and and then make a mold and then pour the mold with from latex or hard latex and then you know, take it out sanded down and painted to look like steel, you know, but it, it all ends up looking same when you do that, but that's what these but most companies know how to do back in the eighty. And so by actually getting this kinda makes this. I earn extra skeleton. Wow. It really changes the whole dynamic for the actor. Good. And. No, he has really take sleep. And so then that choice that wouldn't have been typical. And then with somebody like Julie, I knew that I needed like a top top make up, affects artist for that..
