A short. I made a real honest to goodness short film. Last time I did one, was about 6 years ago, when I was taking Film 1 with Steve Mims. Back then, my film buddy left me hanging, and to make the film, I recruited a neighbor kid to hold the boom, while I used my own kids as actors. I did it on my own. And even though it’s flawed, I still love it.
This short I just finished is also very flawed , but I love it to pieces. It’s abstract, weird and funny. Funny to me that is, I don’t know if anyone else is going to get it, like it, hate it or what, but I laugh every time I see it. I’m proud of it.
It’s taken me a long time to do another. There has been a lot of “doing for others.”
But through Kat’s film class and her “Damn it Leslie, do it!” I was able to get back to it.
This is a good thing!
