A coworker of mine has been working on a short film about the dot.com boom’s demise. Me, several coworkers and a friend of mine were actors or extras in the film. I had a little role was one of the employees who still had a job, who was listening to the boss explain how other employees in the company are in another room being told they don’t have a job.
Today, we got to we a screening of the film and I was impressed. It was really cool, especially seeing a piece that a fellow coworker did. He really did a good job and hopefully we’ll see more in the future.
The funny thing about the movie was that I was totally true. Alot of the extras in the film who were coworkers then have been laid off. It’s sad to see, but it’s a reality.
