you're gonna get sick of hearing me tell you things are true stories. Well, this was a true story -- in a way. I was trying to wrap my mind around having been in 3 student films in 2 years. 1 guy I knew from the clubs, 2 strangers. This was when a short film cost at least $20,000. Waking up hung-over one morning, just as the first part describes, as I wrote of that moment, I suddenly pictured being alert, healthy and happy, another loud (do people know? Real movie cameras are loud!) camera stuck in my face, a director instructing me on how to act hung over...
Anyone else been in the movies?
