And this proves I am still silly, because I didn't realize this could have been filmed during your time in India. DERP.
Like Stees says, i'm hiding behind a tree... can't see my face. Might be in a bunch of scenes when the movie comes out though... from around 12 of us i was the only one used in every scene. Including a solo scene pretending to play the guitar and sing, for sure they cut that out though.

The film looks terrible by the way.
Yeah, she was a Polish woman i was traveling with for a while. That day was insane, left Mumbai at 7am and returned at 3am and that shot was the last time we got to eat anything... and that was only because we lucked out being in that scene with a pizza, everyone else has nothing from lunch at about 2pm.
500 Rupees for a days work and spent around 7-800 on beer waiting around between scenes... au the memories.
Were you at the airport in Mumbai? Google Earth shows thousands of shacks clustered tightly together immediately south of airport property. It looks like the ultimate ghetto.
They've (the government) been trying to destroy those and every other slum in the past few years. I was in a few of them and most seemed ok, ok as it the people were happy. There were friendly and some even had their own satellite dishes... would i want to live there? No, but imo they're better than the large ugly buildings the government wants to replace them with. The slums have their own little communities, some of the things in your house for sure came out of a slum in India. Would be a shame to lose that.
I was at the airport, twice... both times it was dark and i didn't see much of the surroundings though. Only saw the malaria mosquito twice in India (i was there during dry season when they don't come out much), first time was in Assam in the north east which was the only time i took malaria tablets as they're very prominent there. The second time was at the airport in Mumbai, apparently more people contract malaria around the airport in Mumbai than in the rest of the city.
