Will this qualify me for a SAG card?
Healdsburg is home to the very talented Elizabeth Cosin, whom I had the pleasure of first meeting last year at a mac and cheese throw down. I was a judge and her dish took home first place honors. Elizabeth is a published novelist, veteran TV writer, screenwriter and ex-sportswriter who has seen great success in her career.
A few months ago, I ran into Elizabeth at our local wine bar, Bergamot Alley, where she walked up to me and said these exact words, “I’ve been thinking about you. I’m writing a short film and I want you to star in my movie.” I was only momentarily speechless. I said, “Okay, I’ll do it.”
So here we are, on the heels of actually putting this together. Well, she is actually putting this together. I’m just doing as I’m told. The script is finished, most of the cast chosen (which includes her beloved pug, Ulysses), and she is busy trying to wrap up all the last minute details for the shoot, set to begin in two weeks.
Today we shot a short promo video for the movie, featuring Ulysses, who will do just about anything for a cookie. He’s a real pro. Also today, I was handed the script. Stay tuned…
