Sometimes my friends who make films ask me to act for them- this is extremely flattering, and I always wish I could do better at it, but I have no training. Anyway it's a lot of fun, I'd love to do more!

My character appears at about two minutes in the following promo. Chuck, one of the first people I met in Atlanta, asked me to be in. He's moved to LA now and got none other than Erni to edit it!! Holy smoke!

"Rock and Roll Lawyer"

And my dear friend Jeremy asked me to play a homeless man in this film, which we worked on towards the end of college. It was really really fun! I miss him, he's in Austin now.

"Playing with Power"

The first films I was ever in were by Jed Shoemaker but I can't find any of them online- hopefully someday!! I don't even have a big beard in some of them, how about that?

Jeremy said...

Miss you too, buddy!

You're always really natural on camera. The next time I make a film, you have to come out to Austin to visit and do a cameo!

Brett W. Thompson said...

Aw wow, thanks Jeremy!!! :)

Yes, definitely let me know whenever you'd like me to be in another film for you, I love working with you of course!! :D :D

Hope Austin is treating you great- you and Andy are two of my favorite filmmakers from college :)
