Because my parents were divorced…
My Mother moved us to Austin when I was in 2nd grade.
And because she moved us to Austin when I was in second grade,
A little boy named Ernie was paired up with me on my first day of school. His assignment was to make sure I got around ok and boarded the right bus at day’s end. He didn’t realize it was a lifetime commitment.
He then grew up to mistake me for furniture (or maybe it was retaliation, since he’d been tricked).
And because a little boy named Ernie showed me around school,
I got a job at PBS.
And because I got a job at PBS,
I met a girl named April.
And because I met a girl named April,
I took an improv class.
And because I took an improv class,
I took more improv classes.
And because I took more improv classes
I heard about sketch classes,
And because I heard about sketch classes, I wrote some sketches that we eventually turned into some short films.
And I also helped write a sketch show that had a sold out run three weekends in a row.
And because I did all of that, I met more people,
And because I met those people
I will be part of this year’s 48 Hour Film Project in Austin, which we’ll start on August 16th, finish on August 18th and have screened the following week at the Scottish Rite Theater.
Thanks to my parents getting a divorce, I’m helping make a film! Thanks, guys!
