So, that short I’m in (“Personal Day”) was great and won an award and reminded me of some of the shorts I made with writer/director Michael S. Duffey while I lived in Chicago. My friend Tony introduced us and I made around 5 or so with Duffey, mostly shot in and around his house. I loved working on them, loved Duffey’s writing and sensibility and was always so happy when he asked me to be in one. I keep waiting to see if Duffey’s making a feature. I know it’ll happen eventually.
Anyway, here’s a short called “Manners” that was made possibly 10 years ago, back when IO was doing a show caled Vidiocy where folks could pay $20, grab a suggestion and make a short movie based on that in 30 days. The suggestion was “Manners” and the short stars my old pals Lauren and Tony, who are both terrific actors and improvisors and if you see them, tell them I said hello and that I miss them.
