Mr. Bigglesworth, do you think I'm...evil?

On Saturday, I auditioned for the 168 Hour Film Project, which is a competition among several production teams to write, cast, shoot, and edit a ten minute short film. Each of the production teams receives a Bible verse on the first day of the competition, on which to base their story. On Sunday, I found out that I got cast in one of the projects. My team's verse is 2 Timothy 3:12: "In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." I'm so excited about my character, Angela, who appears to be the supportive girlfriend of the protagonist, but in the end turns out to be the most evil character in the film. It should be fun, as I generally don't get to play the "bad guy".

We rehearsed this evening, and shooting starts tomorrow. By Saturday, the shooting portion will be done, and post production will begin. The final product will be turned in for judging on Wednesday, February 28th. The films will then be viewed and judged. The festival itself will be March 23rd and 24th in Glendale, California. The films will be screened at that time. If you're in the LA area and you'd like to attend the festival, keep checking the above website for ticket info.

This sounds like fun. By the way, if you get a chance to view any of the other projects, keep your ears open for "The Cox Brothers" (Andrew & Ryan). They are friends whose project did well a couple of years back (2005). I found them on the site at:


Makes me feel old to say that I am friends with their folks. They are finishing up work at Chapman U. in their film dept. Great guys!

Have fun!

I can't see you being the bad guy. This is where your acting skills will shine. Have fun!

How fun to play the bad guy! The biggest stretches should be the most fun, right? Enjoy!

I'm glad you got the part. It sounds like an interesting project. Wish I lived near enough to see it.
Thanks for your comment on my blog.
