John is working on a series on short docs on various creative pursuits that turn into careers. And I am the first one up.
It’s six minutes long, so you don’t have to worry about it getting bogged down in details. As some of you know, my career developed organically, that is to say I followed what interested me and was fortunate enough to find employment. Luck played the most important part in all this but with only 6 minutes I didn’t have time to bring those instances up.
I wanted John to get an actor to play me. But he said no. I wanted to wear a mask, he said no. I guess I should have shaved…
I find it difficult to enjoy my own voice. And of course this was shot without a script, so I listen to myself and as I build up to some big point – I lose clarity – and say something not quite right. Ouch!
