Hi yall! Caroline here-- the film's set/still photographer. We're down to 3 days until filming begins with 12-hour days! I am BEYOND EXCITED. We all are.
I can't believe it's already been 5 months since Fredgy asked me to be a part of this amazing project. Since then, we're already shot for the Kickstarter, successfully raised above our goal, threw a party, planned the whole schedule and budget, and casted all the roles.. I'm continually impressed by everyone's skills and enthusiastic efforts, and I cannot wait to start filming and share this with yall. (And I've enjoyed capturing moments throughout the process. Can't wait to share more photos with yall too!)
This past weekend, we held rehearsals at Myriam's apt, and I met a few of the cast members: Evan, Brock, and RJ. And let me tell you.. we have some serious talent on our hands after holding successful auditions. Gabi and Dana established the wardrobe, and I shot some photos for the film set to give Josephine some background with one of her love interests.. It started out great, but it ended being so effortless when Fredgy and RJ got into the minds (and looks!) of their characters to channel them into the photographs that will be within a scene in short film. I'm continually inspired by Fredgy's incredible, clear vision for the film's style, and how well she translates it into reality. After this weekend, everything just felt more real.
I know we're just about to start filming, but I'm so proud of everyone for how much we've done already. I can't stop feeling lucky to be part of this crew.
Wish us luck!
xo, caroline yi
