Andi Tajti, the assisting director sent my info off to the director of the film, Matthew Lindsey a fellow southerner from Georgia. I was being taken on as hairstylist, but by the last few days of the shoot I was doing make-up as well.
The short was written as a short play by the talented Jason Wing. Jason met Matt and showed him the play and Matt saw the potential for a brilliant short film. Jason managed to pull in Alan Ford as 'Johnson' in the film which set the standard for the whole short. Alan Ford is known best for his roles in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch.
Jason, through his contacts managed to get DoP Gareth Munden who's worked on a huge range of advertisement campaigns as well as doing the stills for three of the Harry Potter films.
After that everything fell into place, from Louis the producer and actor on the film, the set designer, Sound and lighting , camera assistants, costumer designers, runners and make-up and hair artists.
Filming started on Tuesday 6th April and we went straight to work. Here are some behind the scenes of what went on. More will be updated as and when I receive the new ones.
