The $77,000.00 Movie

This movie was made over 2 years ago.

At the time, I was wondering if I'd move to Los Angeles.

It took two years for the answer to become clear, but it did. And I moved. (The cost of the movie and the decision to move are not completely unrelated.)

It's a fun movie and I don't regret the decision to make it - or anything about the 3 year process of making it - but it's interesting to note that it will be another 38 years before I'm finished paying for the movie.

The first person to "get a flower" in the movie is Genevieve Bennett, a great director who now lives and makes work in Minneapolis. The second person to "get a flower" is Adam Szymkowicz. We were roommates. He also happens to be a wildly talented writer.

H is the redhead at the top of the movie. I married her.

And actually, mine was more too, originally.

I managed to shave a little off the top by not having any craft services on set.

I'm slowly paying it off. slowly being the most important word in that sentence.

that made me giggle, especially as I just looked through the craigslist postings for NYC apartments. I've discovered that "Manhattan" now only means "within a 20 mile radius of Manhattan" as LIC is, eveidently, no longer considered part of Queens by real estate brokers posting on Craigslist. Well, better find me a damn good executive producer.
