who'd directed me in his USC film

The shoot was Sunday night; I initially replied I was attending a convention and could not accept, when I realized it was a night shoot, after the convention was over.

Oliver drove me back to where I'd been staying near nearby Pasadena, and conveyed that the film should be complete sometime in May or so.
