Bad Posture Film

In the summer of 2010 I had the honor of collaborating with director/cinematographer Malcolm Murray as screenwriter and first-time actor. The resulting feature, Bad Posture, follows a graffiti writer on a quest to reconnect with a girl whose car his best friend stole. The script is a collage of events that happened to us or our acquaintances, in one form or another, growing up in the early 2000's in Albuquerque, NM. Initially we did some casting, but ultimately decided to gamble on non-actors—our friends—to play themselves or versions of themselves. This worked out much better than expected, and if I have the opportunity to make another film, I would like to work this way again. It does mean you have to be flexible, and we did rewrite parts of the script on the spot, but we were able to capture moments that would have been impossible to reproduce otherwise. The film premiered at the 2011 International Film Festival in Rotterdam.
