My Alamo Drafthouse Host Audition

The Alamo Drafthouse had an open call for potential hosts. I waited until the last day and uploaded this less-than-stellar, lo-fi audition. The best part about it is that it looks like Oliver Reed is holding a gun to my head.

I watched some of the other audition videos -- some people went whole hog and obviously spent hours and hours on theirs, with martial arts sequences, multiple edits, etc. -- I just hope that this gets me in the door for the live audition.

Judging by the other audition videos, mine is not snarky enough, not hi-tech enough, and not gay enough. Probably should have, to paraphrase Ronnie Bond of the Troggs, "put a little more fucking thought and fucking imagination" into it.

Oh well. Fingers crossed that I'll make the cut for the live audition.

I didn't make the cut. My fault for half-assing it. Should have bought a DV camera and put some effort into it, rather than waiting until the last minute and uploading a one-take piece of shit.

Then returned the DV camera once I finished the video.
