Be The Guy Behind The Guy Behind The Guy

Swingers, Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, humor, Modern PhilosopherI’ve mentioned many times, Modern Philosophers, that Swingers is one of my all-time favorite movies.

Vince Vaughn is incredible, ridiculous, hilarious, charming, and unbelievably skinny in this flick.

His performance alone is worth the watch.

What I probably love the most about Swingers, though, is that Jon Favreau wrote it to help jump start his career and the careers of his friends.  Now the guy is directing Iron Man flicks, so he clearly did something right.

There’s this great line in the casino scene where Vaughn’s character describes Favreau’s as “The guy behind the guy behind the guy”.

Just typing that made me chuckle.

How would you like the chance to be the guy behind the guy behind the guy?

I’ve got nothing new to report on The Blind Date project right now, but my producer and friend, Matthias, reached out today to ask if he could get a little help from my loyal and supportive group of Modern Philosophers.

If you could lend a hand, it would end up advancing my cause to get Matthias’ company to produce my screenplays.

Like I said…the guy behind the guy behind the guy.

Matthias is the Executive Producer and Cinematographer on a project called Cabinfest, which is entered in a film making contest on BET.  If the project does well, it will draw more attention to Matthias’ company, work, and abilities.

It would also open some doors to get us access to the kind of people who could get my screenplays into production.

Matthias Saunders, Cabinfest, movies, Modern PhilosopherMatthias has long believed that my blog is a key in getting the word out about my movies.  This would be a great opportunity to show him that my readers can be counted out for support.  All he is asks is that you go to the site, check out the clip, and vote for Cabinfest.

It really is that simple.  I’ve already done it, and I wouldn’t ask you to consider it if I didn’t think it was a worthwhile cause.

Here’s the link: Vote for Cabinfest

If you do check it out and vote, please let me know in the comments section.  Matthias would love to see the support and read any thoughts you had on the clip.

Thanks for your help with this.  To further quote Swingers, “You’re so money”.

If you haven’t seen Swingers yet, do yourself a favor and watch it.  Trust me!

    Put another check on Cabinfest, Austin. I love the overhead traffic start contrasting to the frantic run in the woods. Nice work by your friend.
