How did Eren Celeboglu get Zach Braff to star in his first short film?
In the months leading up to our short film festival (submissions now welcome!), The Final Image will be talking to filmmakers both inside and out of the industry, amateurs and professionals who have made their own short films while pursuing feature film work.
This week, we got in touch with Eren Celeboglu, a writer and director who got his chops working on the beloved NBC sitcom Scrubs. After majoring in English and creative writing at Hobart College, Eren moved to Los Angeles where he worked in the mailroom of a boutique literary agency that represented writers and directors. After getting work for a motion picture literary agent, Eren began to understand the day-to-day business of screenwriting, watching writers deliver scripts they had been paid for or listening to them pitch over the phone to his boss. “I thought to myself, I can do that,” he says.

Good Morning, Vietnam | 1987 | dir. Barry Levinson
Adrian: Gooooooooood-byyyyyyye Vietnaaaaam! That’s right, I’m history… I’m outta here. I got the lucky ticket home, baby. Rollin, rollin, rollin’… keep them wagons rollin’, rawhide! Yeah, that’s right… the final Adrian Cronauer broadcast… and this one is brought to you by our friends at the Pentagon. Remember the people who brought you Korea? That’s right, the U.S. Army. If it’s being done correctly, here or abroad, it’s probably not being done by the Army.
[imitating officer]: I heard that.
[as himself]: Oh, you’re here… good to see ya.
[as officer]: I’m here to make sure you don’t say anything controversial.
[as himself]: Speaking of things controversial, is it true that there is a marijuana problem here in Vietnam?
[as officer]: No, it’s not a problem, everybody has it.
[as Leo]: I don’t know, Adrian.
[as himself]: Leo! Leo!
[as Leo]: Adrian, take care of yourself. I just want you to know one thing… if you’re going to be dressing in civilian clothes, don’t forget pumps.
[as himself]: Thank you Leo… thanks for these. Oh, these are special.
[as Leo]: They’re ruby slippers, Adrian. Put these on and say, “There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home,” and you can be there.
[as himself]: I hope… I hope we all could.
