My First Video Commentary

(And just in case you need your memory from yesterday refreshed, or otherwise need to know what I’m talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jffi-ZDhpUA)

My involvement in this STARTED when Paula asked me if I’d be available to give voice to Dr. Aeon because I’d be “perfect” for it, because apparently I sound JUST like a whiny self important know it all.  (I’m kidding, of course . . . she’d heard me do that kind of voice before.)  Along the way I became “Consultant” because she kept asking me what I thought of pacing and the like (that and the fact that many of my off the cuff comments became part of the script . . . like the “I love you, Paula!” bit.  While she took the idea and ran with it, that was based on my reluctance to keep silent while she recorded something that DIDN’T involve me.)  Eventually, I made myself so ubiquitous with my feedback that I think she gave me Assistant Director credit just because it was easier than telling me to shut up.

Now I understand this may seem to be a small thing to some (perhaps even most), but to me this is my first film credit, and I’m listed along with someone who has a legitimate IMDB entry.

And I think that’s cool.

    o.k., so maybe I’m biased, but I loved it all.

    Unbiased opinions are overrated. 😉
