Why You Never Take On A Challenge From Chris Burns In Pictures






As you should know, Atlanta Film Festival 365 isn't all we do. (Nor is film all we live for. Do not. I repeat! Do not engage Gabe in a sports discussion unless you are also a sports fanatic.) I was still photographer for a short this past weekend and this happened. Dan is a man that has gone to Sundance wearing only a thin jacket. So you'd think eating an entire pickle and drinking the juice and following that up with an entire Jolt would be a challenge that even Dan Slemons could take on. Alas...it appeared that the pickle--a hot pickle to be precise--was even too much for Dan.

Ask me why short film shoots can be fun--as well as frustrating and tiring-- this is one of them.

That was one of the funniest things I've ever witnessed! I can't believe Dan couldn't do it, either. But, Homer (the shop owner), had the best unscripted line of the day when he said--to Dan, about the giant bagged pickles: They used to be really good before the date passed & they 'turned'. Judging by some of the other artifacts in the store, I'd say that date passed circa 2005.
