Took the wrong train in a new city to a job a minimum wage job that I didn’t want but needed at the time. Asked a random guy for directions when phone GPS still kind of sucked.
He happened to be going in the same general direction. We rode a train together and nerded out on films we were into. He was an aspiring filmmaker (very beginnings of aspirations), and I was just a film nerd without any post-high school education or thought of “breaking into the industry.” We ended up becoming roommates and collaborators eventually. Sold our first film to IFC like 2 years ago.
