For this short comedy I borrowed another actor from the Free Box, Jeremy Benjamin, and a couple of my friends from the Forgery theater group, Sarah Dyrhaug and Paul Susi. They did a great job with the script and I made them do way too many takes, so I give them a big thanks for persevering. Also a big thank you to Brent Norton for the Nintendo footage.
I used an Elliott Smith song in the movie.. I think this is fair use copyright-wise under the category of commentary. Unlike the characters in my movie, I actually like Elliott’s music, btw.
Futureman: Jeremy Benjamin
Lisa: Sarah Dyrhaug
Michael: Paul Susi
Boom Operator: Jacob Campbell
Thanks to Brent Norton at MBX Films for the NES Pro Wrestling footage. Also thanks to Larry for letting me borrow the NES and controllers. Futureman’s spiffy costume was provided by Helens Pacific Costumers.
