NYC, Hipsters and Background Actors

September 11th, 2013 → Leave a comment

I’m leaving the country in ten days for Africa.  I have nothing packed and I keep eating the Clif Bars I am supposed to bring over there.  I am doing 2.5 days in Turkey before I get to Uganda.  I have two grants, an essay, a shitload of work to do before I go!  I hope I can pull this off.  It will be a five week trip!

I am flying to NYC on Friday because I am going to be on “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell” on FXX next week Monday!  That’s right!  All that railing about the Asian Fetish dudes got me a TV gig!

If you are in NYC, you can get tickets to see it live!

Two sketches I wrote and had planned to shoot and launch in July are finally up this week in September! One is going viral!

I am very proud of my work.  Video is not an easy process, and most of the magic is in pre-production and post-production.  The shoot is the easiest part if you’ve planned right.  If you don’t like what I made, suck it and try to do it better.

Time to go to bed.
