My son took the footage of me practicing the Woods trick and turned it into this documentary entitled “Daddy Messing Up: A Touching Journey.” As you can tell, the footage covers a couple months. Oscar nomination? We’ll see.
I’ve taken two lessons from it: 1) Deep practice isn’t ever pretty; 2) Thirteen-year-old boys are really good at editing for humor and rhythm. (It must be genetic!)
(Special thanks to Risa Mickenberg and her band, Jesus H. Christ and the Four Hornsmen of the Apocalypse, for the music. Find more of their music here.)
