My brother-in-law and I are planning on shooting a small video. Right now it's basically a practice run, make sure we can use our gear (DSLRs/Shotgun Mics/Editing Software/etc.). We're going to shoot a quick (5-10 min) comedy horror.

I'm pretty excited about it, since I've always enjoyed filming all sorts of videos. When I was young, my best friend had this amazing video camera, and we filmed the most ridiculous stuff. We would do "man on the street" interviews with strangers and ask them the stupidest questions. One of the best "mini-series" that we had was Batman and Robin. My one friend wore a child's Batman costume (much too small for him), and in the first episode he held interviews for a new Robin. Each applicant was the same person wearing different clothes.

So fun.

I'm looking forward to actually having some semi-professional equipment to work on a hobby that I really enjoyed when I was younger.

So my question is: Do you all have fun things/hobbies that you did in your childhood that can be drastically improved in your (more) adult life?
