My short film 3 Dates premieres in Hollywood!
I wrote a short film based on my dating (mis)adventures and Cannes Lion-winning Commercial Director Philip Kates shot it. There's been work on developing it into a TV show. In the meantime, I thought it should be shared with the world to warn the public of the dangers of meeting girls on the Internet, specifically on JDate.com. Fortunately, the HollyShorts festival in Hollywood agreed. One of the top 25 film festivals in the world, this year's HollyShorts featured films with/by David Arquette, Mena Suvari, Will Ferrell, Don Cheadle, Kate Bosworth, Zachary Quinto and other people far too talented and successful to be in same festival as me. After the screening, many filmmakers in the audience came up to me quoting their favourite lines from the movie and saying it reminded them of their own dating experiences. Which is really quite sad. Those of you who weren't heartbroken filmmakers in the audience can view it at http://www.funnyordie.com/videos/01125225d1/3-dates (where you could register and rate it "Funny" - just sayin') or watch below:
