Today, Writer Maurice Martin holds in his capable hands the helm of the pleasure ship Next To Heaven. Mo selected today’s source film, wrote the narration, and performed the voice-over. The result is a post-apocalyptic tale as fresh as today’s headlines.
Maurice and I have been friends and collaborators for years. Back in the day, he was a featured actor in some of my early videos. Mo was the consummate non-paid-professional: tub dancing in a bubble bath, sitting in a tub covered in shaving cream, dancing in his underwear, sleeping on a fire hydrant, playing a dead body with a light so close it gave him a sunburn, and licking the tire of a truck parked on the street (his idea, not mine!) — What pal!! So, working with Mo and not seeing any odd behavior was a different experience than usual. Although, perhaps writing a Next To Heaven is the oddest behavior of all.
