My really good friend
Jeremy Van Doren
(who also did "Playing with Power", in an earlier post) recently emailed me to tell me he had re-edited this short film, "Will it Bounce?". I really love what he did with it!! :)

I'm not sure if I remember exactly but I think we had gotten together to shoot stuff for "Playing with Power", and afterwards we decided to shoot this. It was really fun! I don't think there was a script really, I think Grant just came up with the idea and we went from there.

"Will it Bounce?"

Thanks for watching!! :)

That might be the last bit of video with me in it- I've got one more in mind I'd like to post but I don't have it at the moment (Jed does though).

I really haven't done that much film acting- you've seen almost all of it now if you've been reading the past entries :) I really enjoy it though and would love to do more. It seems like less work than animation- like, I'm always amazed at how easily you can get a bunch of footage, to me it's like a deluge of frames.

I'm very glad to be back in Atlanta; I went to an amazing circus art event thing at MJQ on Thursday. It was incredible, I saw lots of friends I needed to see (thanks to Amanda Goodbread for reminding me to go to that).

So the last post I talked about being in some films my friends made...

Well, this was the first one!! I was a freshman in college and my dear friend Jed was kind enough to ask me to be in this short skit. It felt great.

Jed works in film in LA now!

"Enter the Trash Room"

There are a couple things you get to see here: me as a younger person without a beard and the inside of our dorm, Gilchrist, where I lived for my first two years of college. The names on the door "Brett" and "Robert" were my name and Robert Hill's name, who went on to make really cool films of his own (he also makes great music!) in FSU's Media Production program.

Also!! ASIFA-Atlanta is putting on "Blowin' Smoke" at the Five Spot on July 23rd!

I will be there but will probably be tired from travel- I'm in Ireland right now for work, and it's beautiful here, but I'm flying back that same day as "Blowin' Smoke", hah.

It'll be fun though, an animation showcase of local commerical work.

Thanks for reading!
