(40) American Dreams
For a happy dose of surreality, this is me as perhaps a somewhat atypical building super. Miho, who plays my tenant, had starred in the cult classic feature film Tokyo Decadence a few years earlier.
We filmed in an apartment on an upper storey of a building on Carmine Street, Greenwich Village, where I have fond memories of flitting up and down that spiral staircase many times. American Dreams was produced by the lovely Momoe Melon, who also directed An Endless Game (from which my scenes are included elsewhere in this demo reel) and who sweetly made sure that the set was always well stocked with a favourite chocolate drink of mine.
