I’d had this idea for a long time to make a series called Lit 101 – where we get lit and talk about lit. It’s had, literally, three incarnations, which were filmed. Two were edited, one ended on the cutting floor.
We finally figured out a format that worked. I think my favorite part is the imagination sequence, mocking the end of the book. This was a lot of fun because I played a Hemingway-esque character… and a stoner, both of which I enjoy.
Jessica Sherr plays Catherine. Ed Miranti is the doctor and Ben Jurin was director of photography. We shot this in the living room of my NY apartment with a greenscreen a couple totas and a pro (light setup).
