September 8th, 1999
This is surreal. This is the actual place where I started originally uploading this log WAAAAY back when.
Started putting some of these journal entries up on the web. I figure filmmakers should get a kick out of them. I start it off with a list of the “Players” and “The Equipment” which is below:
Kevin Kangas, Director: His qualifications include extensive studies of the films of Michael Bay, as well as his ability to pronounce the title La Jetee. Sometimes, he can even tell you whether it was Einstein or Eisenstein who came up with the theory of relativity.
Rick Ganz, Lead Actor: Just because everyone wants him doesn't mean his ego is huge. His modesty is legendary, and mostly because we've only heard of it and never seen it. If you see him, make sure you ask him to get you an autograph from his cousin Ricky Martin.
David Gil, Director of Photography: He's the guy that shot that commercial with the one guy that's talking to the other guy when that thing happens. Yeah, you know the one. Just don't be his Assistant Cameraman if you like to sit down, because he gets miffed. And speaking of...
David Mun, Assistant Cameraman: Hey, you gotta give the handicapped a chance sometimes. And I hear we'll get a special tax break too.
Rick Shipley, Title Pending Outcome of Litigation: Local filmmaker whose titles include but are not limited to: "I Wish My Mom Was A Whore", "Die, Slut, Die, But Do The Laundry First", and "If Sheep, Horses Too".
Bubby Lewis, Lead Actor: Likes earrings a bit too much, if you know what I mean and I think you do. Sings and dances on set for no discernible reason. I think he thinks he's good.
And a lot of other good for nothings!
In case you didn't get it, almost all of the above is a lie. Read on and you'll see what the cast and crew was really like. Then, buy the book and see what kind of juicy stuff I could make up about them.
