Justin was gone so much of 2009 we decided it was best to have me take a crack at a film, just kind of feel it out.  So, it started this summer with me watching a bunch.  Nothing struck me right away.  Chaplin is nuts, but finally I settled on ONE AM.  I wrote some skeletal stuff for Justin and I to begin to work on.
