This was a film I acted in that did very well and gave me some major opportunities. I played the part of Michael and I have to thank everyone I worked with on this! This film was played in many film festivals from California to New York, San Francisco to Beijing, including 3 that are consistently in Movie Maker Magazines Top 25 US film festivals. I play a character named Michael in the film, story line below. It also features Lance Nichols who is in a lot of films including the Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Brett Pawlak was the DP and he also shot a film that was the Best Short at Sundance 2 years ago entitled “Short Term 12.” Randall Kirk you did a great job! It was such a joy working on this film and I thank everyone who worked on it, enjoy watching it!!!
Synopsis: This story captures events transpiring over a few days in the life of a gentle hearted street musician named Robert. Robert lives a solitary existence and finds solace through only two things: first there is his trumpet, which has kept him company since childhood; second there is his increasingly frequent visits with Michael, the young drug dealer who befriends him. Through Michael, Robert gets the only real human connection available in his life. But human connection is not the only thing Robert wants from Michael. Robert must pay a dear price for the brief escape Michael sells and is forced to pawn the very emblem of his soul, the trumpet he has owned since childhood.
