That’s me, from an interview I did with L.A. Times video journalist, Katy Newton. It’s part of a series she is doing where she talks to people who posted missed connections ads on CraigsList. Had I known I was doing my “genuine smile” i.e. the one where I’m all gums, I might have stopped that. Maybe.
Man, it’s hard seeing yourself on video because most of the time people have this image of themselves in their head that they’ve come to know and have worked on, more or less. How you see yourself is usually much different than how you really are, or how you appear to others.
Actually shooting the video was really fun despite the how freezing it was that night. The length of the video is a bit deceptive though, the filming of this started at Union Station at around 8 and just two train rides and two and a half hours later we were done!
Anyway, I think this post and the previous one here makes me seem either 1. really adventurous and outgoing or 2. super, duper-dee desperate!
