So… Remember that whole “fuck you, I went to Portland” post from awhile back?
The finished product is that which you see at the top of this post.
Helping out on this short was buckets of fun, at least for me.
I’ve never been in a room with nearly 30 actors before, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated by the whole experience.
It was a helluva’ fun getting to see people take on their characters wholeheartedly, staying in character between takes.
At the same time, it was a little unsettling being cast as the universally hated character of “Broccoli,” as on occasion it was difficult to discern between the real and faux expressions of revulsion everyone was throwing my way.
Even so, I had a shit ton of fun and I met a lot of really nice and interesting people, many of which I’d like to keep in touch with.
I think one of the better experiences I had at the filming, was getting to sit down and chat with Austin Hillebrecht and Dennis Fitzpatrick.
It’s kind of silly, given the super-indie nature of the film, but having previously watched and reviewed the 2 of these actors performances in Coup De Cinema made meeting them in person kind of surreal.
I think shooting the shit with them and chatting about horror movies was probably the perfect way to end the evening after all the “organized chaos” that preceded it.
Anyway, awhile back I thought to myself about the prospect of maybe moving down to Portland semi-permanently.
Though I honestly wasn’t particularly happy with my performance in the video, (everyone else did great) I had so much fun that I know in my heart that it’s something I’d like to keep doing.
That being said, though I thought I’d given up on the idea, working on this latest Hapstance short got me thinking about Portland again.
Time will tell where the next curve in the road takes the Azn Badger…
