My white Nokia smartphone is smeared with mini chocolate donut and I couldn’t be happier. Why?
Tonight was the kickoff production meeting for The 48 Hour Film Project Seattle. These are a few of production crew who aren’t camera shy. From left to right: Jon Spieth, Iver Nitz, Serena Berry and Greyson Boevers.
I feel honored to be Assistant Cameraperson alongside this accomplished crew.
What are the crew’s tastes in film? From classic Universal Studios horror movies to the new documentary titled “Fed Up”.
The chocolate donuts and the flowing java were compliments of Writer Serena, who grew up loving Goodfellas (1990). Her passion includes positive representation of African Americans and women in film. She also facilitated tonight’s icebreaker and FAQ.
The genre will be decided in sorting hat fashion by 5 P.M. Friday, August 1st: horror, drama, comedy, or film de femme. As seen in the first picture, we practiced for horror by stringing up the crew’s real life firefighter-in-training!
Writers such as Serena will gather with the executive decision-makers and have a script/shotlist for the rest of us by 7 A.M. Saturday, August 2nd. Actors and crew will be prepared for a 10-12 hour shooting day.
