It was 1998 and I was in film school and The Late Show with David Letterman was looking for a good sketch. They thought it might be good to have a couple of guys come down and pitch some projects and he would agree to star in a short film free of charge. And so a great stunt was born and I got my first taste of t.v. work and my first taste of working with a comedy great.
And now it's 2010 and I keep getting notes from my Parisien neighbor telling me how to be. I get mad enough to decide to make a short film about it. I figure if they can write hate notes about how I should live my life, I can atleast write a comedy in French about the whole experience. And then it showed at the Charleston International Film Festival in 2011.
This was my first "proper" short film I made. It dates to 1996 or there abouts. I wanted to make a small film about a Turkey farmer mourning a friend. I have been playing it for people at Thanksgiving ever since. Fun fact; it was shot by Seith Mann who went on to direct on the Streets of Baltimore with THE WIRE.
