The LAN Has Been Posted

Posted by Peter Hall - January 21st 2007 @ 2:29 pm

When I told Chris, the real life counterpart of one of the characters in the film, that I was going to post the script for The LAN, he hung his head and sighed, "Don’t do it."

Posting this script is basically the same thing as posting a naked picture of myself, passed out at a party with vomit caking on my chest.  It is embarrassing to show the world this.

And yet I do.  I do it with gusto.  I’m happy to give people the opportunity to see potential in the aftermath of such a grotesque train wreck.

This is something I devoted a good portion of myself to and this is something that I, by every objective definition of the word, completely failed at.  But it was worth it.  I love this hideous baby and chances are you might too.

Here it sleeps.

    Note to self, never make someone who hates public speaking and has a very strong fear of it, do a huge monologue.

    I’m sorry Chris it needs to be done. If only for the sake of preservation, all footage needs to be uploaded, uncut, unedited, and for all to see. Peter has taken a step towards accepting this film as the alchol fetal syndrom, extra chromosone’d, bastard love baby that is truly his own. And he should completely accept it for what it is and what it stands for, and perhaps even one day, he will even love it. For all involved it was a learning experiance, a first real try, and one hell of a ride for the rest of us. I admit my engagement in the process was quite limited, so perhaps i look back on this time we shared with a less jaded perspective then the rest. One day it will happen, and we will all enjoy it. Together. Just like that one time in Gerken’s basement.

    Im sure people know but it should be mentioned again that this was way before Stay Alive. I never did end up going to see Stay Alive, it just looked so bad… ill rent it one day and watch it. I would much rather watch it without giving them any money though.
