Just 21 days away from the opening of my flick. Should I be nervous? I do have to intro it. I'll be fine if I have a microphone, but if I have to shout to the crowd, for some reason that will make me more nervous.
I had this plan to lose a ton of weight and dye my hair blond. Show up as "The Producer" as a little joke. I'd have a camera follow me around as this character and then slap that on the eventual DVD. But one of my roommates talked me down. He said I'd never lose the amount of weight I wanna lose in time. So screw it. I'll play the dumpy fat man some more, with no way to divorce myself from what's onscreen. Ouch.
Speaking of which, what's a more embarrassing scenario: all of my friends seeing me mentally nude or all of my friends seeing me physically nude? I may have to leave the theater for that scene, but I had to include it cuz, COME ON! Fat naked guy?--funny. Disturbing, yes, but also funny. That I'm speaking what may be the most important monologue in the whole flick will be far overshadowed by...well...my shadow. There's a lot of that type of thing in this movie, come to think of it. I just hope all of the truly important details aren't drowned out by my will to make funny as opposed to teaching. Teaching in a movie becomes preaching.
I have enough preachers in my family.
