Awakenings was a 1990's drama directed by Penny Marshall and staring Robert De Niro, Robin and Williams. I I believe it was 1991 and I was shooting a series of specials for Channel 9's "A+ For Kids". Howard Stern asked me to shoot his first movie in 16mm film… I said yes and here on Vimeo is a very compressed version.
I used an Eclair NPR 16mm camera shooting Kodak film (forgot which film I used) and had my camera assistant and audio mixer. Howard had the channel 9 crews film behind the scenes filming us as I was shooting and directing.
We seized an old age home for some of the footage and the rest I lit several rooms up at channel 9 to act as doctor offices. One long day and lots of laughs.. enjoy.
