Check ou the upcoming comedy produced, written, and directed by Ruidoso, NM based filmmaker Deborah Voorhees and her husband Rich Beer. They are my new friends and I’m excited about their project. Check it out!
This is crazy. I get dropped off in Ruidoso, NM. Caught a lift from a guy the last 25 mi here on my 75 mi journey from Roswell. I get here, tired, have a burrito, and rest for a bit, trying to figure out where I’m going to sleep, if I’m going to try to fight through the fatigue and try to perform in town (I ended up performing Romeo & Juliet for the mother and daughter who ran the burrito joint), and at random I just good “Ruidoso, NM, Shakespeare.” And holy shit, did that search deliver. It let me to Deborah and Rich, a husband and wife filmmaking team who also raised money on Kickstarter to do a Shakespeare project. The are in the final stages of completing a film that takes a comedic look at what it would be like for Shakespeare if he were a screenwriter in the modern day. It’s called “Billy Shakespeare.” We met, and they were kind enough to feed me, take me in, and we’re actually trying to set up a few small shows here in town. Take a look at their project!
Isn’t this crazy???? God is good. Hope I can do something positive with this opportunity, but at the very least, it’s awesome to make new friends.
