This project began as a desire to tell a funny, different story, then to make a social statement and then it morphed into .... something else. When the actors were cast and the crew brought on, everything changed.
And so here we are.
Thank you all so much for your help and your support over these 30 days. Because of you, we're able to complete our project. Thank you.
As a way of thanks, here's a video, shot today.
Today is the first day in the apartment of our characters; a day where some of them hook up, fight and run out to their day of destiny. Below are more photos from the shoot.
Thank you all so much for your help! The machine rolls on, but we still need your help! We are so close!
Our Kickstarter campaign is nearly over, but the shoot continues.
Below are photos of our day 2, set in a rapidly-gentrfiying diner in the city. An amazing, challenging shoot, with some incredible performances. If you like what you see here, please, please continue to support us.
Meanwhile, the shoot pushes along. Day 3 photos coming up tomorrow! You'll love it.
And we're off.
And months of writing and preparing and pre-production, SHANKMAN'S rolled camera for the first time Sunday. The shoot was everything we expected: challenging, difficult and a lot of fun. What we didn't expect was that two non-actors would turn in great performances, or that you could get so much use out of a vial of stage blood? Live and learn!
Below are photos of the shoot. We'll be posting more tomorrow during the day. Meanwhile, please continue to help us out! We're only $8K away from our goal, and there's only a few hours left!
If you like what you see here, please help! And thank you to everyone who's supported us! We really appreciate it like you have no idea.
