the Democratic Convention & Sundance...
What do those two have in common you ask? Well I got to have a blast at both of them back to back last week. Dan P, Amy L, Mark 5 and and BiG Mark were the most fabulousus production team one could ask for in Boston ... and they put up with my bitcheyness & male-period behaviour .. Fuse Music
ran around with us as we shot scenes from drunk fans at Fenway Park to a pissed-off BillO'Reilly
at the Creative Coalition event downtown. Not much sleep but lots to do and getting around was tough - mostly by foot and sometimes cab. After interviewing what seemed to be a hundred people (IE: Jerry Springer, Billy Baldwin, Robert F. Kennedy
and even Triumph the Insult Dog
), I took off for the Sundance Producer's Conference where I met the creator of the now famous "this land is our land" parody. We chatted about doing some joint content on "America Speaks Out"
and smoozed with 90 other filmmakers from all parts of the world creating all types of films. My favorite script? a guy from India with a comedy titled "When Harry Tries to Marry". It's about a traditional Indian college guy that wishes for an arranged marriage but his hippie parents from NYC just want him to find a girlfriend. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" meets 'American Pie' with an Indian twist.
Almost 1/2 way done filming with no arrests to date! :D
