Are you in Ottawa on Wednesday? Come see me in my cinematic début (and swan song), where I play a mischievous (and…deadly?) circus tent! Yes, you read that right! Yes, it is weird! No, I won’t give away what the hell is going on, but I will tell ya that I had two stunt doubles!* Here’s a trailer from an Indiegogo campaign earlier this year that I can barely watch because I don’t want to see my smarmy ‘acting’ face!
This was actually filmed five years ago, but funding and timing and postproduction were complicated things. I am legit terrified of seeing it, even though I’m just a tiny part in it and I know everyone else involved has some kind of talent (and performing and/or filmmaking ambition). And I want to support their work (as I hide from my own). So I will go. And panic. And drink too much of a Wednesday evening And sink down in my seat whenever I appear. And try very hard to have fun, I swear.
