I was an extra in a feature-length movie a friend directed. It was a tumultuous production about which a sequel to Easy Riders, Raging Bulls could be written, but not by me. I had fun.

The last video project I've been involved in was a short written, directed and composed by Marc. Yes, composed; he was a composition student, and for a project he decided to do a soundtrack, and make the movie for which he'd write the soundtrack.
I'm terribly fond of this. Marc shares my love for Birmingham, and it shows.
Marc asked me to be in this immediately after the final performance of a play. Later an actress in the play asked me "Why wasn't I invited to be in this movie?"
"It's a gay porno," I said.
"I was in a lesbian porno," she said.
"I was kidding," I said.
"I wasn't," she said.
