It’s great to see you tumblin’ about your movie. So far the buzz is positive and I’m glad that Walter Salles is directing the project, seriously.
However, I do have a problem with you.
You see, a few months before you started shooting in Montreal and Gatineau, I offered you to become an extra on your movie FOR FREE and I got no answer. As I emailed you, I wanted to do this for personal reasons.
My grandfather grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts and was friends with Jack “Ti-Jean” Kerouac. Just like him, my grandfather had Quebec roots but grew up in the United States. I also lived in Gatineau for more than 15 years and shot a short film exactly where you filmed.
You don’t know how honored I would have been. I tried contacting you in every way imaginable but you never contacted me back.
I’m sorta sad about the missed opportunity.
