Romeo and Juliet: the One Man Version

My first split-screen movie idea was to do a fake duet and I figured I’d try to shoot it while my wife and son were out of town. I was also going to take the opportunity to cut my hair. But then I thought … why not try to combine those projects?

So I tried to come up with an idea that could leverage off the fact that I would look dramatically different in the two versions. And this is what I came up with. A few things I learned on this one:

  • putting on make-up is hard!
  • acting with an imaginary version of yourself is really hard
  • it’s very nerve-wracking to have your two versions separated by a haircut because you can’t go back and reshoot the first one

    Mach! If you don’t eat the potato salad, you won’t go to the hospital, trip over the lab experiment, and accidentally set in motion the discovery of the cure for cancer! Yeesh. Thanks for messing up the space-time continuum.

    Ach! The fate of all mankind vs bad potato salad… It’s so hard to choose sometimes.
