Lubomir as well as the rest of his crew attend Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah Georgia and are exited to be working on a project of this caliber for their senior year.
We will be shooting in Macon Georgia and working closely with their film commission as well as the production company, Bright Blue Sky.
Every scene of the film will be captured in long takes, bisected by a timlapse from night to morning. We hope, if budget allows to shoot this film on the cutting edge, Arri Alexa camera.
Two actors, six roles. This will require makeup, wigs, and even prosthetics. Also the acting challenge of becoming three different people for one film will require a professional.
In order to properly tell a story of our modern time the sets must be state of the art and high fashion, Every piece of furniture or light fixture will reflect the character that purchased it.
Over all we feel that this is a worthwhile project and a story that is so close to everyone living in this modern age. We are making people open there eyes to the nightly lives of the people around them then refusing to let them look away.
