howdy friends!

so in just 9 short days I will be going into production on my short film “Certified.” it’s a project that I’ve been working on for a little over a year. why so long on a short film? well, the story takes place in rural 1950’s America… but the production needed to take place within 30 miles of 2010’s Los Angeles. that made for a tricky location situation.

I’m not sure I could add up all the time I spent online looking at location scout websites or the miles I drove looking at different locations…but they were significant.

finally, a couple weeks ago I found a spot. it’s within the “zone” and within my budget. we moved quick to secure it for the shoot and with the help of Stanley (our UPM) and Kimberley (our producer) we were able to do it.

if you’d like to know the day-to-day happening of the film and special behind the scenes tidbits, you should “like” the film on Facebook! Here’s the link www.facebook.com/certifiedtheshort

and here, as a special treat are some behind-the-scenes location scouting pictures of the places that DIDN’T make the film.

enjoy!
