If you are here reading this blog you are also a Vin Diesel's fan, and I know that when you say vin Diesel the first thing that come up to your mind is his interpretations of Dominic Toretto and his full of action Fast and Furious saga of course. Actually, Vin Diesel is a lot more that just Dom Toretto for that reason today we will read a little about Vin Diesel's beginnings.
In 1994 Vin Diesel decided to make his own short film to secure funds for his feature film debut. he wrote, directed, produced, and starred in the short drama film Multi-Facial, a semi-autobiographical film which follows a struggling multiracial actor stuck in the audition process. The film was selected for screening at the 1995 Cannes Festival. Multi-Facial was noticed by Steven Spielberg, who would cast Diesel in Saving Private Ryan (1998). It was released on DVD in 1999.
Someone recently asked what my first Hollywood film was… I always assumed everyone knew, haha. But this year marks the 25th anniversary of the film that changed my life. Saving Private Ryan! Profound, because it feels like yesterday. The lessons I learned from Steven, Tom and the whole experience I have taken with me through out my career.
