Green Screen Shoot on 12/30/13

     This year is ending on a high note for me.  Yesterday, December 30th I directed a green screen shoot with actor Martin Bell at Prestige Studios in Hollywood, California.  This shot is VFX 1 and the actor standing  at the podium behind the camera slate will be digitally composited with the stage of Miami Auditorium at it would have looked during the Miami Beach High School graduation ceremony in 1956.

     I am always the first person to arrive at a location and the last one to leave, and yesterday was no different.  So, for me, it was a 15 hour day.  No complaints, though, because I love to make movies.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
