For those with access to Hulu, I came across a pretty great documentary on the behind the scenes of “Saturday Night Live”. Very great insights from the cast and the writers. Going from the process of coming up with ideas that stick (and how difficult that is), as well as wonderful moments of brainstorming with actors like Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, to great discussions on the overall SNL process by Steve Higgins, Will Forte or Lorne Michaels himself. If you are an animator, you’ll see many parallels on the process. Ideas that seem funny at first, and as soon as you put them in front of a group of people, they fall flat…and the other way around. If you have access to the documentary, definitely watch if you can.
