For this project, Michiya English and I created a parody of dating advertisements. We interviewed two customers for the website “I’mDesperate.Com”: Brian Brian, played by Jack Utrata, is a complete jerk and Olivia, played by Elliot Miranda, is a sweetheart looking for love in the wrong place.
The interviews were really fun because we gave Jack and Elliot creative control of their characters. Michiya and I decided what the characters would be like, but they ultimately decided what to say so it was still like a real interview.
We hit a few filming obstacles on the way, like finding a place to shoot, but it was all worth it in the end because Jack and Olivia were so funny!
