ILY in St. Louis

So in September 2005 or so, Guyot emailed me. He knew I was looking for a Director of Photography and wasn't clicking with anybody in New York, so he sent me a link to a guy in St. Louis.

I looked at the guy's reel. I showed it to Mike Faircloth, the executive producer. We both thought it felt right, so I emailed Dave Berliner and asked if he'd be interested in a New York short film. We talked (a lot), we emailed (a lot), and I ended up flying him out and putting him up for the shoot.

He was the right guy. Solid on the art, solid on the business, solid on working with a director taking a big step up in complexity. The morning I bought his ticket, he had me forward all the responses to my Craigslist crew ads. By the end of the day, he'd put the crew together--and during the shoot, that was one hell of a crew.

I like finding festivals near the people who work on the films. It's a way of showing support above and beyond the paycheck--it says the praise they've heard from me wasn't just lip service.

I'm very pleased to announce that I LOVE YOU, I'M SORRY, AND I'LL NEVER DO IT AGAIN will screen in competition at the St. Louis Filmmakers' Showcase, July 21-26 at the Tivoli Theater. Hopefully Dave and Guyot can both make it. Seeing as they've never met.
