A while back, maybe even before production began on Gortimer’s final season, and definitely before I cut my hair (how did I ever live like that?), Amazon sent a production crew down to SoCal to make a short video about me. It was part of a series called “Transformations” that features many authors and other various kinds of human beings who have been involved with Amazon in one capacity or another, and whose lives have been changed in the process.
Once you get past the weird feeling of being the center of attention, having a video made about you can be a fun experience. Everyone on the crew was great. Interviewer Cristin Miller has my gratitude for putting me at ease and charming me with her enthusiasm.
Cristin and team spent two days interviewing me and Amazon Studios execs. The crew shot at Amazon Studios’s office and also came to the Dave Cave to film. They’ve also incorporated behind-the-scenes footage into the story. You can make a game out of figuring out which shots are of the cave, and which are of Gortimer’s bedroom set.
The video popped up on YouTube a while back and I assumed it had been abandoned there. It’s been linked on my About page, so you may have seen it but probably not because who reads About Pages anymore. But now there’s a nice new write-up on the Amazon Transformations page. There’s a link on the front page of Amazon.com (yes, I’m bragging) but I’ll save you the bother of hunting for it. Please visit the Amazon Transformations page and enjoy.
