The Story

When Vanessa's friend Dave gets a girlfriend, she looks at the world with fresh eyes. It's gay versus straight, white versus black, and couples versus the rest of us. And although she's Vanessa, she could be anybody. She could be an heir to Rupert Murdoch's media empire. She could be one of the millions of people every year dying of AIDS while the rest of the world watches Big Brother. She could be Karen, who isn't talking to anyone. She could be anybody.

I Could Be Anybody is a fifteen-minute film that was shot on DV over five days in September 2005. It’s funny, it’s observational, and sometimes it’s a little bit melancholy.
