Fatman in a Suit from Peet Gelderblom on Vimeo.

My friend Peet Gelderblom is some kind of talented fella. Here's a short piece he wrote and directed satirizing the public image of well-known Dutch actor Beau van Erven Dorens, whose buttons popped so memorably in Peet's recent short film, Out of Sync. Who knew this suave European star and I had so much (literally) in common?

And speaking of Out of Sync, congratulations to my friend again-- the film has been accepted into the competition at Rutger Hauer's I've Seen Films festival September 30 through October 9 in Milan, Italy! The jury consists of Hauer, Miranda Richardson, filmmaker Anton Corbijn and a host of others. Best of luck, Peet! And be sure to pick a nice tux! You may need it for the Oscars!
