Futureman Goes to the 80s

August 5th, 2009

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.
