The Booth in the Back in the Corner in the Light
"Well I guess that's it."
I start to get up thinking the meeting's over. Jerry points at some words on my notebook.
I see the words he's pointing to. THE BOOTH IN THE BACK IN THE CORNER IN THE LIGHT.
"Oh that, that is the name of a post about this meeting on my blog. May I take a picture?"
I snap a picture of Jerry White in the coffee shop in that booth in the light (really only half a booth but what a lousy title that would make.) We talk a little more and then he leaves on his motor cycle.
We were talking about the production of "Walking the Graveyard". A wonderful little script by Desiree Nordlund of Sweden. I gave him a small good faith payment at the meeting. Then he told me I was the first person to pay him any money for directing. I smiled with a warm glow inside me. Other would pay him more but I would always be the first to pay him. That is the best part of being a low budget producer.
