This project was a collaboration of Theater and Film students, part of the interdepartmental directing class being taught this semester. As a film student in the class, I was assigned two actors I had never worked with before and we were asked to create and shoot a short scene from a piece of open text. We worked out the characters’ backstories and given circumstances together through several rehearsals. The scene we shot was about a Dorito-loving guy who uses his sock puppet to approach his secret crush. As expected, the resulting scene has some absurd and funny moments, but there is something human underneath it all.
