“It’s March 23rd… something bad is going to happen.”

Those are the first words that I uttered deep in a basement in Monrovia as the character Lloyd Proffit in the film “The Basement and The Kitchen.”  Actually, it was the first line that I wrote for what I thought was going to be a play.

Boy, was I wrong.  It turned into my first film and the reason Drama 3/4 evolved from an independent theater movement at USC into a full fledged official company that actually makes things.  So every year on this day I like to take a quick moment to tip my hat and reflect on the project that kick started it all.  Happy Birthday, Lloyd!  Enjoy the trailer to the film starring myself, Ric Barbera, Pam Cook, Luiggi Debiasse, Mo Gaffney, Terence Paul Winter and Jeff Wiens.

Enjoy, Froggies!
