SCENE RECREATION: BEFORE SUNRISE

acting

I went to the screening of Best Picture winner CODA and met Madeleine Humphries. She was there with an actor friend of hers and I was there with my brother. She saw us walking in the reception and reached out to us and we struck up a conversation. I talked with her actor friend more than I talked to her, but I managed to show her the La La Land scene I did earlier and that piqued her interest. We met up a couple more times to talk about potential scenes to do and then…2 months later we put this out. Talk about fate!

Hope you enjoy this recreation of a scene from the iconic movie ‘Before Sunrise’.

La La Land – Scene Recreation

acting

I remember loving this scene from the first moment I saw it in a theater. I also knew I would never get a chance to perform the lines because…I’m a guy. So we shot it both ways, because ultimately I believe that this scene isn’t really between a man and a woman, but between an actor and a musician. Between two people whose relationship allows them to be vulnerable to one another while also being brutally honest in support of one another.

Weekly Monologue – “Perfect for Each Other” from Good Will Hunting

Uncategorized

Another week, another monologue, another GOOD WILL HUNTING monologue. God, I love this movie so much.

In this scene, Robin Williams’ character teaches Matt Damon’s character a little thing or two about romance. Holding people to impossible standards and keeping them propped up in your mind is unhealthy, especially because you’re not without your own flaws yourself.

Hope you enjoy.

Here’s the original:

Weekly Monologue – “The Best Part of My Day”

Monologues

This is a scene from one of my favorite movies, Good Will Hunting. I’m working on a couple scenes from this movie, because each one of them feels like an older version of myself speaking to a younger version of myself.

In this scene, Will’s friend Chuckie lets Will know that he’s wasting his potential by staying at home.
