Body Double 9: May the Frog Be With You...

I saw a commercial for a new reality show coming on FOX this May called On the Lot.

On the Lot affords aspiring filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime: a $1-million DreamWorks development deal. And, 12,000 people submitted their films for consideration. On the Lot will feature filmmakers who will produce short films in every genre every week and the viewers will vote on who gets eliminated.

I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am for this. Actually, yes I can. You see, from 8th grade pretty much through most of high school I wanted to be a movie director. That's how my obsession with movies began. And, in the torrent that was my obsession, I focused much of my unquenchable thirst for knowledge on one of, if not the, greatest director(s) of all time, Steven Spielberg. And it's one of Spielberg's good friends and colleagues, George Lucas, that inspired today's Body Double.

Could George Lucas be a member of the animal kingdom? I think he and my friend the frog have a lot in common. It might be his neck pouch that gives him away...

And, I'm sad for the GL right now...I'd be wicked pissed if you made this comparison with my face.
