I not only had the pleasure of being the behind the scenes still photographer for "Transient"'s trailer shoot on Day One, but also to be acting in (you'll see me along the way.) Please check out their site and stay posted for the completion of the trailer which will then be shopped around for financing the feature, set to shoot in the near future!
Base camp and the set for several scenes shot on Day One. This place made me feel so at peace, so at home. Simply gorgeous.
(R to L) Producer Barbara Gray, Writer/Director Jimmy Willden, Producer/Actor Jeff Gibbs.
Young Henry and Young Abigail. These little actors were such amazing sports, shooting all day and still standing at the end.
Another of my favorite views from our base camp/1st location.
Producer Barbara Gray stands in for the actress playing Young Henry's deceased mother while Chris Thompson and Gary set up the shots.
Setting up the shot.

Making movie magic.

Back/Side yard of location #2. Beautiful!
...And with sweet horses! Total perk.
One of my favorite "important people in action" shots. Love it, AND them. Such lovely people!
Waiting on batteries...
Jeff: It went THIS way.
Aaron: No, it went THAT way.
Michael: I have no idea what they're talking about, but this coffee's GOOD.
Making shadow puppets.
Tyler taking action.
"James, make the butterfly. Now a dog. Now a cheese sandwich." Okay, he didn't say the last part, but it'd be FUNNY!
Louisa, Tyler and Terrance. What a crew!
How many people can you cram in one room? THIS many.
Shooting Young Henry's introduction to Young Abigail. You really need to check out the film's site so you know what in the world I'm talking about. It's complicated, but very good.
Yours truly playing the Foster Mother.
Such a boring crew, can't you tell? No fun at all, simply no fun.
We even got a real live sheriff to play, well, a sheriff.
It was so chilly, but these kids did a super job!!
The "Highly Emotional Scene." Why are we all smiling?...
I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy.
LOVE this one!
Mom, warm me up.
Probably my favorite of Jimmy.
Action and action figure.
Aaron prepping for the last scene of the day with Amy's help.
Jeff making his appearance.
Audrey playing "Mrs. Williams" helps Chris set his lighting.
Prepping for the first take.
Finally at peace.
And that's a wrap for Day One shoot of the "Transient" trailer! Thanks for joining me on the journey!
