And Now, A Review

Please indulge me a moment. A year ago tomorrow, Thomas and I commenced filming on The Night Shift.

It was the worst possible first day of shooting.

The ridiculously over-priced lens adapter didn't work. Our cinematographer moved across the state with no notice. It was windy. It was cloudy. My hair fell (I know; the horror). We got zero accomplished--not one useable frame of film. Period. It was a wasted day, and several of the key players ended up in my living room, trying to figure out how to use the [expletive deleted] camera.

Luckily, the second day went much better, and we ended up with a pretty little picture of which we can all be proud.

But you know this already.

Why am I posting today? Why, it's because on this, the eve of our anniversary, the first review came out, and folks, it's a doozie. Seriously, people are going to think we paid this guy (we didn't). It's from A Little Dead Podcast (cute), and starts a little past the episode's halfway mark. If you get a chance, you should listen to it. If you'd rather not, here are some of the finer points:

“I love this film! [Khristian] Fulmer...was likable, affable and relatable. [Erin] Lilley...was equally enjoyable...I absolutely loved Herbie! Story was also very well done with perfect pacing and progression...never gets mushy or lame...really nice chemistry between [Fulmer and Lilley]. Fulmer played the character with just the right amount of humor and seriousness to keep the character real. The oddity, the interestingness, and the affability of the main character; everything comes together and makes for a really good experience. A definite buy. It’s just that good.”

So I'm happy. Hope there are more nice ones to follow. Thanks for putting up with me on this. Love you guys!

Add your own ramblings, musings, or existential ponderings here--just keep it clean and keep it kind.
