This is my film. I took the camera on the trip around the world, and the film only cost me $300 to make. I submitted it to the dogme95 group in Denmark because it had all the earmarks of a dogme film - no special lighting, no extra sound, no costumes, makeup - not a genre film per se

  • and they sent me the certificate. I'd like to clarify that neither

Oliver Stone nor Jack Nicholson appear in this film - they're look alikes that do a hell of an impersonation. That's the magic of this film - you don't know if what you're looking at is what you're seeing. Especially the sequence with Carol Alt - and it really is Carol Alt - but it's an incident that actually happened to her in real life, and she's quite brilliant doing the improv that we did, the first take, in Santa Monica. The second take some guy came over and knocked me down for harassing her. That was pretty funny. But WARNING - this is a movie hobbled together, shot on DV camera, and done for $300. It looks like it was made for $300. Please don't be disappointed by the cheezy quality. That was the idea. I want to inspire anyone who has a DV camera to pick the dang thing up and make your own movie! Rich Martini
