Price of Progress

What a week! But i already went into that. Now i must talk about the shoot! It was a delight. Everyone was so great. The director/co-writer is a Japanese guy in his senior year at Chapman University and this is his thesis. He was awesome. He knew what he wanted and also trusted us to do our jobs well. He found lots of talented people to work on it. The 1st AD was totally on top of things. That’s gotta be one of the toughest jobs on set. Keeping everyone on task, on time. The DP all the gaffers, hair, wardrobe, makeup, etc. Everyone was friendly and worked well together and made the set a fun place, but still got the job done. It was such a great experience- and not just because I got to have awesome 1950’s hair. The other actor was talented and I felt like we had really good chemistry. I can tell already that everything will look beautiful. It’s shot on B&W 35mm.
I can’t wait to see it, but it won’t be done until at least April. In the meantime here are some shots the director took on set (turned B&W for effect).
