Rough Cut. Nicolas, Katie & I just saw the footage Nancy shot last week together for the first time. The three of us have been working on separate tracks: Katie with illustrations, Nancy film & me preparing/editing/proofing Nicolas’ text for layout.
Though we’ve all seen the script, it’s still super-compelling to see live actors performing the script on location. With sound. There is still some tweak we need to make, but overall we’re on track.
And plus: We got a teaser trailer ready for next week!
Digital Sunset. Santa Monica. California.

Shhh. A secret closeup of our storyboard.
Actors & Extras. Milling about before the shoot.
[Phoebe (left) plays the main character in our film; to the right, an unknown hangers-on. Just kidding. San Woo, a fellow grad student, who was gracious enough to help out on the set, did some amazing background acting for us today! ]
