Videos: I Need to Lose Ten Pounds – First Attempts at Shooting

The following footage was taken July 21st, 2001.

We had written the script and decided that, at the age of fourteen, we were ready to shoot a feature film. We were sadly and adorably mistaken.

This was shot on a two hundred dollar home movie camera, and though Alan was still playing Miguel, Frankie was playing Peter. With a big pillow under his shirt. Awesome.

We also got kicked out of the convenience store seen in the footage and made a really lame attempt to run me over with a car. Enjoy the very first “footage” of I Need to Lose Ten Pounds.
