Principal photography of Cat-Sitter II: The Ass Menagerie has officially wrapped for Darryl Gold’s pretend porn fest. What I’m supposed to be doing now is getting Small Screen Heroes on the TV, but somewhere in the barrage of back and forth phone calls I found myself on the Bermuda Film Festival website — and was quite shocked to see October 1st as the deadline for short film submissions!
Ever since my first visit to “The Rock”, I’ve had this idea kicking around in my head for a parody of Easy Rider on scooters. And now that I’ve been to the festival and seen the dearth of local content there, I’ve decided that it’s time to bring my idea to life.
Thus, on my own dime I’m flying my star actor down to the island next weekend for a two-day shoot, and staying on myself to personally deliver an edited film by the Friday deadline. If nothing else my brother and sister-in-law will have an expensive souvenir of our visit to show off to their friends, and local actors here in Toronto will be much nicer to me…
