It's a wrap! 

Last evening marked the final shooting session for my newest film, Nadine (See my January 31, 2012 posting). Just days shy of one year in the making, we ended with a couple scenes in Havre De Grace, Maryland.

After shooting both The Skeptics In A World Of Their Own (2010) and The Flow Of Forsythe (2011) in Frederick, Maryland, I wanted to avoid another 90 minute trek to Frederick that spanned over four years. Searching for a new idea, things worked out and I didn't think I'd end up finding a project two doors down from my home.

Over the last year, I've shot much footage, but have only viewed it while uploading to my editing program. I then moved on without any further work on footage. But now my canvas is ready. I have all the needed colors. It's time to begin painting my story. I'm excited, but a little nervous, as it's time to see if I can produce what I've envisioned and bring the story to life: A clairvoyant and one man's tale about a 1947 "Knucklehead".

Currently, musician/composer, Jamie Garonzik, is creating soundscapes for the film. I'm pretty excited. I approached Jamie, a fine guitar player, and asked him if he was interested in creating pieces for the film. He was eager to give it a try. What he's provided so far has been fantastic. His creations are spot on and I feel they help take my footage to the next level.  

In the meantime, however, I'd like to thank Joe Loiero and his son, Joe, for their time and willingness to be part of the film and embrace my vision. When I approached them with the idea, they didn't hesitate jumping on board. Our sessions together have been fueled by laughter, fun, and the desire to do something creative.

Okay, stay tuned, my friends. I will keep you posted about the film's progress.
