Fandomicity — the video

Wednesday, June 13th, 2007 | 66 comments


The Office FandomicityMaggie (aka seat18b) has finally finished her film class project — a documentary about The Office fandom called FANDOMICITY — “a documentary made for the fans by the fans.”

I’ve watched the entire thing, and I must say, it is fan-freaking-tastic. (Who knew Office fans were so dang funny?)

Maggie adds, “All the cast and crew were made a copy over at the offices of The Office and everyone really liked it, which is really great.”

And yeah, Maggie got an A on her project. :)

P.S. A behind-the-scenes look at OfficeTally appears at the end of Part 3, around 5:48.

    Hey, Part 2 has been removed from Youtube! Someone needs to get it back up there. I don’t post here at all, so I don’t know who to tell about this! Someone get it up! (twss) haha.

    I’ve been watching this over and over (and not just because I’m in it)! Pam Pong was amazing! Thank you Maggie, Tanster, Nate, and everyone else for all the hard work. I agree with all of y’all who said that The Office has the best fans ever!

    tanster, as billions of people have already said, THANK YOU SO MUCH! i didn’t fully understand how tiring your job was until at the end of your office thursday bit, you said, ‘as PAM would say “not a bad day.”‘ only then was i like WOW she is mentally exhausted. LOL!

  4. 63. tanster  

    Yes, it’s true — the majority of OT readers are lurkers. :)

    Tanster, I was really surprised to here the number of hits you get a day. I knew, of course, that the number of comments are a tiny proportion of the number if views, but I had no idea how tiny. Wow.

    Finally got to watch the part about what goes down with Office Tally on Thursdays. WOW! Talk about dedication. Jennie, you’re fantastic – and I’m with the loads of others who visit a few (like 100) times a day… it’s nice to see what you put in and we SO appreciate it!

    Great job Maggie and Tanster. You guys rock. Thanks for this great documentary Maggie and to Tanster, thanks for all you do!

  8. 59. Markus  

    wow I just watched the whole thing. That was fantastic Maggie. You are uber-talented. thank you

    I am 110% in agreement with 30% Frontal Attack (#48). Maggie, tanster, and Nate–you guys are amazing!

    This was so great to watch. Maggie is a pro! I enjoyed every second!!

    I finished watching and just had to comment again! As everyone else has said – You go, tanster! Thank you for all the hard work you put into this dawesome site! And I’m with Big Turkey – I’ve never commented on any site before in my life, because I’ve read some really obnoxious, rude posts on IMDb and such. But everyone here is so intelligent, respectful and nice, that I wanted to be a part of it! And also, I felt that Maggie’s ‘Fandomicity’ was very fair in pointing out that there are also negative aspects to being obsessed – most of us don’t want to acknowledge that, but I thought it was a good point she made. Whew, I’m done!!!

    I’ve already commented, but I think this would be a good edition to the DVD extras. :)

  13. 54. Big Turkey  

    Loved it!

    You know, after the Job, I thought that it was so awesome that over 700 comments were made. However, when Tanster said in the documentary that there were like 39,000 unique hits to the site during Beach Day, I was floored!! I never would’ve thought there would be so many lurkers out there who don’t say anything!

    This is the first blog I’ve really ever consistently commented on, and I just can’t hold back. But something like 38,300 people don’t say a peep. Oh, the willpower they must have. ;)

    Thanks for everything, Tanster.

  14. 53. sabrina  

    That was totally awesome.

    I think everyone said this already but I’ll say it anyway…THANK YOU TANSTER!

  15. 52. tanster  

    Thanks for all the kind words, everybody!

    When Maggie first suggested I film myself on Office Thursday, I told her, “but my Office Thursday is so BORING!” But thanks to her video editing magic, I think it turned out okay. :)

    “Then I get to watch the show at 8:30. That’s kind of like just the only 30 minutes of the evening where I’m actually enjoying myself.”

    That ended up sounding a lot funnier than I intended, lol!

    Ahh Tantster! I can’t believe I forgot to thank you in my last comment! I was totally intending to and then I got distracted! haha :) But in all seriousness, THANK YOU so much for all you do for us crazy dunderheads!
    I would be so bored at my office everyday if I didn’t have this site to come to- not to mention I would have to rewatch and get all the great quotes myself! You are simply uh-mazing, my dear!! Infinity thanks to you!

    I was about to put in a request for the Pam Pong song, but it’s been taken care of! Woot! Awesome job on the documentary, Maggie! You must have worked your tushie off. Tanster, as always, you rock my socks off. Without OT, I couldn’t be nearly as obsessed as I am.

  18. 49. BenA  

    Tanster – I would like to echo all the appreciation all of The Office fans have for you. I really do check your site at least 5 to 10 times daily. I don’t know how I would get through my work-day without it. I had no idea you put so much time into it, but it definitely makes sense considering how high quality it is. You are simply amazing. Thank you.

    Also, it is great to see that there really are people out there as obsessed as I am about this show. That song was incredible.

  19. 48. 30% Frontal Attack  

    MAGGIE, great job…excellent execution.

    TANSTER, you do too much for us Office scrubs…we appreciate everything that you do. I’m a Webmaster for a major corporation and can understand what you go through.

    NATE, I was expecting this little diddy about Pam and Jim and you freakin’ cranked out this production-quality piano ballad about two or our favorite characters. Impressive.

  20. 47. Miss Dunder Mifflin [brandi]  

    Maggie really did an outstanding job!!! I’m so happy I got to be a part of it! Seeing all the other fans talk about the show and love it as much as I do was really neat!! The Pam Pong song was also amazing!!! I already have it up on my myspace page! Thanks again Maggie and all my fellow dunderheads who were in Fandomicity! You rock!
