Cold Blood

Alright, as promised, here’s my acting debut (on camera, anyway). It’s called Cold Blood and it’s directed by my friend’s brother, Darren. I’m not too sure about the technical aspects, like what kind of camera was used or the editing equipment. I do know that the sound was recorded on a hand-held Olympus digital recorder. I have a very small part. Enjoy.

Whew. OK, let me help you through that incomprehensible mess. The hitman guy (whose name is Crowley) is dating this chick and they’re having problems. Crowley works for my character (whose name is René [clever, no?]) and I’m a middleman bad guy. An important package was nabbed by some counter-operative codenamed Sparrow. Crowley has to get it back, which he’s already done in the beginning of the film where he’s standing over someone’s arm, smoking. The rest of the film is comprised of disjointed flashbacks…I think. Who knows?

Anyway, I was attached to the project in a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing and I had about a 30-minute car ride to memorize some of the most unspeakable lines rivaled only by the Star Wars script. Needless to say, I botched my portion over and over again. Thankfully, the filmmakers were forgivingly patient.

I must have done something right, because they invited me back to reprise my role in the feature-length version that we’re shooting this may. I’m excited, if only to redeem myself as an actor.

I’ll keep you all posted.
