Block 'M' Blog: Catching up with Pat Stansik

I think anyone who is making Internet videos, the ultimate goal is always to move on to something bigger. It’s fun to make your own stuff and I have complete control over what I’m making right now, but I’d also like to have an actual job doing this.

Right now, I’m trying to figure out plans to move down to Los Angeles and get involved in the comedy scene down there. Later, something like writing for a sitcom or writing for Saturday Night Live or writing movies would be the ultimate goal. I want to go with the flow and see what happens, and it’s a weird time in terms of just not knowing what’s going to happen, but just knowing I have these tools at my disposal and the fact that I can even make stuff like this from Ann Arbor, Michigan and anyone in the world can see it is pretty awesome.

TMD: Do you think you’ll be around next football season or is this your last go-round?

PS: I don’t know, but I think this will probably be my last go-round, depending on where I move. I always thought it would be fun to take this concept and do it around the nation at a different school every game, but at the same time, I think the reason I like it the way it is is because it’s very Michigan-centric. I like the fact that other people from other schools can watch it and enjoy it, but people from Michigan can appreciate it more and identify with it more because it captures the Michigan gameday experience. It all depends on what I’m doing. I always liked filming stuff that was going to happen anyway. People are going to be out anyway, so I might as well film them partying, which might sound kind of creepy, but it’s always fun to take part in things that are going to happen anyway. There are obviously a lot of different schools and different pre-gaming and tailgating experiences, but at the same time, I can only film drunk college students for so long.
