Cutting Room Floor

Phillip Mottaz's latest Vidiocy project, It Had To Be Me, has made the semi-finals of that contest, which means that it will be shown this Wednesday night at 8 pm at the IO Theater and is eligible to win fabulous prizes.

I filmed a short scene for that movie a couple of weeks ago. I drug myself out of the house, dog-sick, I might add. But my scene didn't make the final cut of the movie. I'm sad, but I'm happy, too, because I've seen plenty of Vidiocy entries that treated that contest's 10-minute limit as a challenge to fill the time. I'm glad that if the scene just didn't fit that Phillip took the needs of the whole piece into account and chopped it.

(Or maybe I was just terrible.)
