The Switch took third place at last night’s Tropfest@Tribeca. Woo!
On September 23, “The Switch” (dir. Jonathan Emmerling) will be one of sixteen short films (chosen from 161 submissions) premiering at Tropfest@Tribeca, a “free public outdoor short film festival” at Battery Park. I play Tom, the sad sack who’s so bad with the laydeez he’s never been on a second date. He finally meets an attractive someone who totally “gets” him and “crushes on” him and whatnot, but it’s a dude! Laughter, tears, lessons, etc. ensue. Watch a short clip here.
Not to be shallow (I’m not, but I know some of you are), but I understand the judges’ll be some, like, pretty famous peeps — last year Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon were two of ‘em. Maybe Robert DeNiro will ask you to save his seat when he goes for a pee. You can blog about it later.
So: I hope you’ll join my friends and me for what will, at the very least, be some pretty good short films. And maybe some wine, if we can bring wine in. (Probably not.) Entertainment starts at 5, and the screening starts around 8 (about when I imagine I’ll get there).
