We just shot this cool little piece at the end of the L.A. Marathon this past weekend. It’s not very often you get these kinds of raw shooting conditions here in L.A., so we wanted to be sure to capture the runners experience as much as possible. After two monitor break- downs, multiple zip lock rain covers, repairing gear in a ‘port-a-loo’ and two complete sets of ruined clothes, the torrential pouring rain finally got the better of us. But the conditions certainly made for a very authentic cast of characters. Couldn’t have wished for better conditions really!
Did you happen to catch the Oscar’s last night? I know, stupid question. Well, if you were paying attention you might have noticed some of our handy-work as they announced the nominees in ‘best adapated screenplay’ category. Basically, the idea was to show the original work in the form of a novel ( except ‘The Social Network’ shown on an iPad), shot in an environment relative to the story. As the book opens, the pages morph into a screenplay, which then fades into the movie. Voila! We worked alongside our longtime collaborators at T- stop inc., namely the extremely talented DP Thomas Hencz, and Prologue Films. Oh, by the way, that iPad you saw for ‘The Social Network’, yep, that was mine! So i kind of made it to the Oscars! Well, sort of.
