Last night I put on some sequins, put my hair in an up-do, and attended the premiere of the annual law school movie.
In the film, I play the role of a pathetic third year law student, who has no job, no boyfriend, and terrible grades. After realizing that my life is in shambles, I send out a signal to the Lambda Law Association (dubbed the "gay mafia" in the film) and a band of sharply dressed men and women arrive, Reservoir Dogs style, and teach me to "love my fabulous self."
Me! On the big screen!
My director extraordinaire, Lowell, who kept referring to me as "The Star" until I finally was like, OKAY FINE, I'LL EMBRACE THE STARDOM. Sheesh. Now somebody go get me a cocktail.
Rob, the man who played opposite me as my annoying 1L boyfriend. He is not annoying in real life and I obviously am not trying to find a boyfriend in real life, which means we had to bring our best acting skills. And, more importantly, Lowell had to bring his very best editing skills (case in point: Rob and I filmed an almost-kiss scene in the computer lab, but that scene was ultimately cut, presumably because our best acting skills were not so great).
Also, that there would be a champagne glass full of beer. Yes. Classy, I know.
We had a superb time.
And, finally, somebody you may already know: The Mawker, who superbly produced the film.
Making the film was so much fun. I'm not sure if it will ever make it to YouTube. There are some Copyright issues with music and whatnot and it would be, ahem, illegal to post it. We ARE law students, after all, so we care about these types of things. BUT! I will get a DVD, so come on over for popcorn and champagne (or cheap beer in a champagne glass, if you prefer).
