Yesterday I was asked if I wanted to play in a movie. I accepted the offer. I have a minor roll which means that I'm only walking for a few seconds. The cool thing is that the movie is a part of Asia's largest short movie festival. The movie team was of the professional kind and they had some really weird and expensive movie equipment.
The reason I was asked was partly because I look like a New Yorker (the movie was shot at the airport and my roll was to arrive to Tokyo from New York with my back-packer friends) and partly because the director is a former student at my school and met me once while he gave a speech at my school. It must have struck him during the visit that I looked like a New Yorker.
My name will be in the credits together with an actress which according to better knowing people is a rather famous actress.
