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.
Details on the Strawberry One Acts can be found here.
Thank you again to my fantastic cast of Sophie, Jessy, Stephanie, and Sadie for helping me put together my first commercial effort! I can’t release the full version just yet, but here’s a screenshot to hold you over.
