Karin hooked me up with a ticket to Terri. She works the LA Film Festival every year and always offers to hook her friends up for screenings. I’ve never taken her up on it until now.
I think I mentioned before that I’ve frequented the comedy improv theater Comedy Sportz (yeah, with a “Z’). I’ve mostly seen the College Team, a bunch of college aged kids who are totally awesome and funny. They are on par with the Pros who are super funny too. Improvisation takes a quick wit, openess and a general history of the world and popular culture.
So it was a surprise to me to hear that one of the kids was starring in a movie with John C. Reilly. The movie is Terri and the kid is Jacob Wysocki. It’s an indie film directed by Azazel Jacobs and explores a group of high school kids and adults who don’t fit in. The main character, Terri, is played very subtly by Jacob. His guidance counselor/principal is John C. Reilly. The film is melancholy, quiet, funny, sad and real. I really liked it and it was nice to see a funny man (Jacob) find his place in a dramatic role. Way to go!

Actually, last year was a huge production that took about 2 months to complete. This year was different but still a big project. So I wanted […]

Maybe it’s just that there was a parking spot. I was running errands during my lunch break and saw a parking spot right in front so I decided to run in and grab something to go so I could take […]
