|Portland actors Josh Rice and Angie Collins|
From March 15-30 I shot scenes from THE CYNIC screenplay I'd written in the UCLA program. I went up to Portland, Oregon (my hometown) between Winter and Spring terms and shot using a small crew and 100% local talent.
It was an amazing experience and could not have gone better. We got great locations, wonderful actors and a great result.
We shot on my twin Canon 60D's using nice vintage Pentax Super Takumar lenses from the 60's. A great way to go if you don't have thousands of dollars to spend on lenses. I love how they look.
Right now I'm cutting together the trailer with plans of raising funds to complete the feature.
