Part of the team that produced the award-winning Laundromat—the short film that I'm in and that did smashingly well on the festival circuit—banded together once again to shoot a new short, Jinx, this past Sunday. It's a group so fun to work with that when I walked through the door in the morning and declared, "I'm here to shoot my solo jack-off video," nobody missed a beat and everyone dived into impromptu joke-banter about solo jack-off videos.
This was, however, an actually legitimate shoot. Written by and co-starring David Wilson, directed by David Maurice Gil, and produced by Andrea James (with fine set assistance by Rick and Doug), Jinx is a cinematic exercise in..in...in...well, I don't want to give any of it away. Perhaps it'll do as well as Laundromat and end up traveling the festival circuit, showing up on cable, and being released on DVD. You can see it then.
In the meantime, I will say that this was a physically taxing shoot. My limbs were sore, and I was punk-ass tired afterward.
Of course, I wasn't tired enough to not demand stills from the movie. I insisted, "Make sure to send me all the photos in which I look butch!" Click the pictures to enlarge and behold my butchness (or lack thereof).
(By the way, we miss you, Edward Gunawan!)
