I’m very excited I can finally announce a project I worked on last summer: It’s an independent feature film called BLAME- you can read more about it here. The story is set at in the turbulent world of adolescence When a high school outcast becomes entangled in a questionable relationship with her drama teacher, it strikes a nerve in her jealous classmate, bringing about a series of devastating changes in the lives of her peers. There’s more pics and info at the film’s Tumblr.
It was a lot of work, but we had a great crew and a phenomenal cast, including Chris Messina (The Mindy Project) and Tate Donovan (Masters of Sex.) The film was directed by Quinn Shephard, who you might have seen as a hostage on Hostages or a person of interest on Person of Interest, among other roles. This is her first feature, which is just incredible. I was the first assistant director, in charge of the scheduling and making sure we got through what we needed to each day.
Even though the shoot was just a few weeks, there’s a whirlwind of memories running through my head: using a home-built rain boom to create rain when we needed it, making friends with the very nice police officer who wanted to know why we had a giant camera pointed out the back of our car, and an impromptu drum circle in the band room of the high school we were shooting in.
I’ve seen some of the footage, and I’m really happy with how it turned out and proud of all the hard work everyone contributed. The film is in post-production right now, and I’ll have more updates as the film comes together!
