RE: Tragedy / Comedy
Six years ago, Will got cancer in his back. Obviously, that sucked. But he and his best friend, Seth, coped with the tragic situation by finding the humor in it. After he got better, Will decided to write a comedy inspired by what happened, called 50/50. Seth produced the movie and I played the character inspired by Will.
I know that even in the darkest times of my life, there have been those unexpected moments, circumstances and stories that just make me laugh my ass off. I want to start a collaboration for those kinds of stories.
Contribute your tragic/comic story here. Tell us about something terribly unfortunate in your life, but do it with a sense of humor. You could write your story in text, you could RECord yourself telling the story into your camera or microphone, draw a picture, write a song, whatever’s comfortable.
Then I’ll direct our creative collective of RECorders to adapt some of those stories into short films. You know how we do it. Maybe they’ll end up animations. Maybe they’ll become scripts for actors to perform. Maybe they’ll become musical numbers. We’ll see.
Laughing and crying come from the same place.
You know where.
