I’ve had multiple opportunities to be a part of three short films the past 12 months. And I’ve enjoyed every minute. The first film, shot in April of last year is still in post-production. The second film, Overboard, was my first leading role and an absolute blast. I met wonderful people, spent two fantastic days filming, and was allowed to wear some fun boots and a scratchy beard.
Today, I was a part of a movie currently named “Copy”. As I type this, the crew is still shooting. At 8:30 this morning I showed up on the site, met the crew, read through my lines a few times and readied myself. We ran the scenes from every angle; sometimes more than once.
And when it was done, I realized how much fun it is to work in this medium. I had a great time. I know we might not win any academy awards but making art is such a joy. Doing it with people who enjoy the craft is even better.
