I submitted a play to Festival de la Bete Noire, in Montreal. It’s called I Live Here Now, and it’s a horror one-act about a man whose night is interrupted when a young lady enters his home and refuses to leave — she lives there now.

Anyway, after being accepted, I learned that I am responsible for producing my own digital play — basically a short film. So I am throwing together my own theater company — provisionally named The Hammered Players — and filming in January. This has been quite the learning experience for me. First of all, I’ve learned that a lot goes into making a short film, if you want to do it right. Do you know what a gaffer is? Of course you don’t, no one does, except gaffers. And now me. And I need one, and can’t find one.

Also I’ve learned that I have some awesome friends, who are willing to step up and help me out, for very little money, mostly out of the goodness of their hearts. I’m super excited to make this film, but I’m not gonna lie — it’s been a stressful week. I will update when the film is available for viewing.
