Yesterday I took part in Digital Boy Film Works' entry for the Doritos Crash the Super Bowl Contest, a commercial, titled The Steal!
The link to the post about that shoot can be seen here: http://thecommonone-jtw.blogspot.com/2015/08/on-set-bench.html
About a week ago, my friend and frequent co-star, Mark Solari, reached out and asked if I was able to be in the project. The weeks have been flying by, and I had to attend a wedding the day before, but I was more than happy to work with everyone again. Plus, Jessi and Heseti were anxious to test out their new Canon EOS camera.
Mark and I traveled out from the city to film in a beautiful park in Glennridge, New Jersey.
My scenes included the Jamaican born actress Kameka Linton playing my girlfriend. Mark plays a park creeper stealing my Doritos. He then is chased through the park by a classic horror villain.
The shoot was very quick, efficient and lots of fun!
I know the odds are stacked against winning, but still fun to put and entry in. You can check out the final cut here:
