Dream Job (2012)
* My final project from the 1yr Filmmaking program at New York Film Academy.
A socioeconomic satire about a guy (Dave Hill) struggling during the economic recession of 2008. He's selling his prized possession (the first comic book appearance of Wolverine, The Incredible Hulk #181) to make ends meet when he gets offered what seems like a dream job. Kinda-sorto autobiographical, maybe; this short film is based on a story that was in my stand-up routine. After developing an acquaintance with Greg Giraldo he gave me the good advice of trying to write a script with it.... Greg was always gracious enough to sit and chat with this nobody about the craft of making people laugh.
