My star turn

Monday, July 23rd, 2007 | All Things, Film

Walking home from the subway station this evening, I was approached by a young man with a headset and clipboard, who without much by way of introduction, asked if I’d be interested in appearing in a movie being filmed in my neighborhood that evening.

Hmm… this sounded like the set-up for a Lifetime Movie of the Week.  Probably sensing my suspicion, he quickly assured me that he had no prurient interests in mind, and showed me some production materials and a permit for a small independent film that appeared indeed to be shooting at The Church of the Blessed Sacrament on West 71st Street.

Well… why not?

For the next two and a half hours, I (and a couple dozen others) posed as wedding guests for what I understood to be scenes in a low-budget thriller to hit the festival circuit sometime later this year.

See Saw wedding

Did you get paid as you did in The Mirror has one, nay two faces?

If only! See above: I was paid in craft services, i.e., sandwiches and Twizzlers. Oh, and fame, of course 😛

Go for it ...
