Things To Do In San Diego: August 15, 2011

This weekend I worked security for a film shoot at the Casbah. Basically I had to make sure nobody touched any alcohol from the bar, but it was super interesting to how professional and controlled the environment was. The film is by Destin Cretton and from what I understand, it's called ::Songwriter:: (though I heard someone joke, "it's called 'I Am Not A Hipster'") and is scored by music written by Joel P West. The male lead was played by Dominic Bogart and he was such a sport playing the same two songs about 83 times each (mild exaggeration).

Anyway, it was a fun shoot and reminded me how much I wanted to work in film back when I was deciding what I wanted to do with my life (though I suppose I'm still deciding). Anyway, I have no idea how long post-production will take or when or how the film will be released, but if you've ever seen Destin's work, you know it is probably going to be pretty amazing. Good luck to Destin and thanks for letting me be a part of the fun. Hopefully people show more support for a film about a songwriter than they do for actual songwriters (zing!) because from what I've witnessed lately, show attendance has been really pathetically dismal. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother with these listings.
