Well, it’s done! Checking Out wrapped and is up for funding. It was a grueling and wonderful 3 days seeing the pilot I wrote with Patrick and David come to live via some incredible directing talent and inspired photography.
Now it’s time to fund for a pro editor to make this pilot it’s sharpest!
And here’s a photo of me on set looking like Ed Harris at Mission Control in Apollo 13, wearing a towel as a superhero cape.
The Alice in Wonderland project premiered in Nicosa, Greece at the Pharaoh Arts Foundation with live musical accompaniment. While the DVD won’t be released until spring, here’s a little taste of the compilation. My project with Vin is about 1:42 into the video.
The first day of shooting has come and gone. With Sophie Snyder as Alice and Nicolai Gorden as the Tree (with Chesire Cat) we had a great first day. As challenging as it was dragging a 50 lb. door through Prospect Park, I couldn’t be more thrilled with the performances and the film so far!
I headed out to Dead Horse Bay last weekend to scout a location for an Alice in Wonderland project playwright Lavinia Roberts and I have in mind. The abandoned beach is delightfully creepy and the perfect spot…in summer. It was painfully cold, hence the less than fashionable winter coats with our test mask pictures. Photos by Diana Lang.
Great news in the world of directing: I’m the AD on an entry in the Strawberry One-Acts at the Hudson Guild! Our show, detailing the struggle of a young man taking charge of his life and his family after losing his grandmother, opens February 13! Look for “So, So I Am Normal” in the lineup.
