GO: I hadn’t made a short film in 10 years. I also hadn’t acted in a long time, so I was really tapping into something new on this project, since I played the lead character. There were so many different elements to it that drew me to the project. For me, it was a way to get out and do something different again. I also just had a lot of fun.
SL: Well, there was the time I made a short film parody of Being John Malkovich called Being Scott Lochmus [laughs]. But I direct concerts and produce features, so this was a great opportunity for me to get to try something new. I just dropped everything else I was doing and fully committed to it.
GO: I feel like we have worked on this project since the day we each won the contest.
SL: About halfway through, Gracie and I started an email correspondence and just tried to figure everything out. It was the first year of doing Script House, so there was a lot to figure out together.
GO: they couldn’t have picked two more opposite people to win this contest. But we’ve had a great time together over the past 24 hours.
