Oh! Forgot to mention that in class on Wednesday, we showed the class the audition tapes for the short film we’re producing, “Zeyen and Nazia.” I was offscreen, reading lines with the actor as they auditioned. We found an East-Asian guy we really liked, but we weren’t as happy with the crop of South-Asian girls. After seeing several, one of the guys piped up, “Can’t we just put Priscilla in makeup?” I was amused.

So last night I saw Mirrormask with Will, which was utterly phenomenal. If it’s playing near you, you really need to see it on the big screen! I’ve seen some reviews that say it drags on a bit long, but I was too spellbound to notice the time going by.

After the movie was over, I raced back to Annenberg (with five minutes to spare!) to see Aaron in Metamorphoses, which was great! They managed to bring the Funny without detracting from the Drama, which can be a fine line. One of my favourite bits was the directorial decision that the guys, in Ancient Greek thespian tradition, wear lipstick and eyeliner. Too funny for words.

And now, back to homework and Poli-Sci Midterm studying. WAH.
