Video Free Somethingrather

VFS is something like a sketch comedy show, except that it was produced by bored college students with no filmmaking experience, poor scriptwriting skills, and zero acting talent. It was shot with old, cheap home video equipment with barely any thought given to lighting or sound, edited with open source software, and borrows content heavily from Creative Commons and public domain sources while also stretching fair use to its breaking point on copyrighted content.

In short, it's shit — but it's our shit. It's me and my friends and my family messing around on camera. It's like curated, slightly less boring home movies.
