Behind The Scenes

This weekend I had the opportunity to be a photo assistant to filmmaker Erik Hecht, of Arcade Films.    We shot for a little over 11 hours, in which I had an amazing time working with their cast and crew of friends and dancers.  It was a cool experience to be present as a video was created, piece by piece and take by take.   If you are in Seattle, the showing is this Saturday at 9pm with the Washington Dance Club.    It's free and a dance will follow the screening of the films... wait, what was that??  Movies and dancing, that just sounds like a perfect night out doesn't it?

During the second half of filming, I picked up my camera and played with a little behind the scenes shooting.   Now you can vicariously experience the creative process as an idea and vision was transformed into a film.    There were many, many talented and great people on the set.   Check out the Arcade Films site later for the video and scrolling credits to see who was involved.   

Erik is on the far right, next to him is Arcade Films producer Celeste Olds; a lady with a quick whit and mad jazzy dancing skills.
