What's been going on all year? Well a lot of my time was spent working on a documentary film with people from Scary Cow about the men at Fisherman's Wharf who earn their living hiding behind bushes and scaring tourists for money. There are three of them, two who both claim the title of the Original Bushman. [right: connecting a microphone is a good reason to get your hand down a Bushman's shirt]
Our film takes a look at all three and then focuses in on the man we feel (as does the crew at Hooters) is the "real" Bushman. The film, "Behind the Bush" is 10 minutes long and will be having it's world premier at the Castro Theater this Sunday at 3pm!
Tickets are available online or you can roll up to the box office as your mood suits you. The Bushman claims he will be there - we bought him a ticket and everything - but over the course of making this movie, we learned he's not the best at keeping date. So, be optimistic, but cautiously optimistic.
More on more in the upcoming weeks. I don't want to overdo this first post and then scare myself away for another 10 months.
