The first time I was exposed to independent film making was back in senior year of high school...

As a little vignette they had two clips entitled Alternate, Alternate Endings. The first clip touched on Back to the Future 3 and the second on the Indiana Jones series. I was an extra for Indiana's funeral scene. The fellas at lowcarbcomedy spared Indiana Jones the disgrace of the Crystal Skull by killing him. So on a brisk Sunday morning I hung out in a cemetery to mourn the loss of Dr. Henry Walton Jones Junior. Incidentally I met and hung out with a bunch of new cool people. My favorite part had to be planning my outfit. I spent the night before trying on all of my black clothes. I ended up wearing a super cute sweater dress I got from the thrift store with black fleece lined leggings. I also decided it was a great opportunity to break out my Grandma's fancy black fur coat. I mean seriously, how many occasions do you have to wear a fancy black fur coat? I had a feeling that we might be lacking on other warm ladies' coats that were funeral appropriate so I brought a couple of my other fancy black coats with me. I'm glad I did because we ended up using all of them that chilly day. I was glad my contribution helped. After a whole morning and early afternoon of filming I ended up onscreen for maybe 40 seconds, which you can see below. I had a whole lot of fun.
I look forward to working on more independent projects!
