I’m a film maker. Although I’m not currently making films, I will.
For this Flashback Friday I want to revisit my brief film career. 🙂
In 2008 I wanted to experience what it would be like to be in a film so I browsed Craig’s List for film makers that needed talent. I found one that was looking for a lead and it was a full length film so I got permission from the wife and went for it.
My monologue was from Al Pacino’s great scene in The Scent of a Woman, I bombed at first but asked the director if I could do it again. Apparently I was the best one because I got the part. Let the adventure begin.
It was a blast. I learned a ton about putting a film together and realized that in the film making process I would probably be best as a producer not director or even actor. Putting my story to film and getting everyone involved is how I’ll start.
I’ve posted the trailer for the last sunrise. I want to warn you, this wasn’t my best performance acting but we were short on time and didn’t do a lot of re shoots.
