is the character for THE FINAL DAY of #CharacterADay Season 2. He’s speaking french. And that’s all that matters.
And there it is; the final one. I felt this pressure to make my last one the best one. Finally, I had to give in to the idea that the last one will be whatever it is.
I will miss the excitement and fear I have felt every day of the project - the little nagging voice saying “what are you going to make today? Hurry up, think of something!” I felt this nagging as I was driving back tonight from a big party we threw for Liz on the river. I started with the idea of a guy saying dumb things in a sexy french accent. I tried to find some bit of human truth: for most of us, it’s just the accent, not the content, that turns us on.
This is a fitting finish to the project. It shows where I ended up: more fascinated with the format and filmmaking than the actual creation of audition-ready character bits. Excited to see where this new fascination with film will go.
This week I’ll post some reflections on the blog about the whole process. But if I don’t catch you this week, thanks for watching and reading. It has been more important to me than you can imagine.
