O, I completely forgot to post this here. I guess I'm rather busily distracted these days....
I was so thrilled to be given the freedom and authority to design, create, and direct this project! Adventures during the course of this project included trying to purposely explode something in the freezer; set decorating with a forklift; what to do with actors who are too damn goodlooking for the parts they're playing; and what happened when the Vancouver cops showed up on set.
Tonight is the premiere theatrical screening of Anticipated Results, a book trailer I wrote and directed for author Dennis Bolen. From early July onward I was enthusiastically, excitedly buried in designing, writing, directing, and editing this project, and even now still have some post-production wrap-up work yet to do. Two versions of this video were produced: the final cut, which is screening tonight, and the Director's cut, a version I edited myself on my clunky Crayons-and-legos software.
The video is screening tonight. I am not in attendance.
Today at work I made a small bet with my boss -- as per his suggestion, we'd agreed that the loser would do a lap around the outside of the store (it's a big store, on a hill, and it's beautifully hot summer weather). Two employees witnessed our agreement.
So he's all, "Okay, gimme a lap, running."
I looked at the staff members and clarified, "I didn't hear anything about running, did you? Lemme get my smokes and I'll head out and do my lap. I'll be back in ten minutes."
