    Steve Shanafelt continues to hone his thespian skills. Can Hollywood offers be far away?

    You flatter me, but Hollywood is as far away as always. Unless there’s a movie where they need a tubby guy with a beard to be a geek of some kind. Then again, Kevin Smith kind of has that market cornered, so I’m not going to hold my breath.

  3. All you guys need is a good plot, try:

    Mountain Express
    an original screenplay concept
    by Someone who can’t follow simple instructions.
    Action: A pimply computer nerd teams up with a crotchety codger to save the earth from aliens. In the process they fall in love with a super intelligent chimpanzee. By the end of the movie they run away from 1456 oogly aliens and end up winning the admiration of their manager, living happily ever after.

    Think Priscilla, Queen of the Desert meets High Noon.

    I’m envisioning Steve in a showgirl outfit. It is causing me no joy.

  5. Steve,
    I’m glad you’re having fun with this! As soon as I saw this video, I had to run by the office to grab a copy of the Bele Chere guide. Nice job on both the guide and the sneak peek.

    I look horrible in sequins.

    I’m thinking plumes…lots of plumes…
