Today we began shooting a comedy short I wrote, “Men, Interrupted.” It follows the twisted relationships of three couples through the course of one challenging night.
David, Kate, and I practiced every beat in rehearsal last week. This makes for a relaxed and easy shoot. It was amazing how consistent the actors were in filming. Their continuity will make the editor’s job (Jay Trautman) much smoother.
The filming location is in a “transitional neighborhood” covered in rival Crip and MS13 gang tags. After wrapping, we had grips escort the actors back to their cars!
All in all, a fun shoot, and nobody got knifed! I’d call that a success.
