I shot this a few months ago, on a whim and as a favor for my friend David, aka Polyester.

It took me a while to get a final edit, but here it is!

Let me know what you think:

That guy does a pretty good Divine impersonation.

He met John Waters once at a screening of "Female Trouble", and Waters literally broke down crying because he looked so much like "her".

Nice work Jon. It could have used some smoke or maybe a diffusion filter to mitigate that hard video clip (would have looked great on film!). Like the camera angles and the simple unfussy lighting.

I shot it with a PD-150, and just didn't have any suitable diffusion on such short notice when I shot it. Some smoke might have done the trick.

I tried some filters in post, but wasn't pleased with any of the results, so I just left it clean :)
