1. Trailer for my 16mm senior thesis while at film school. Shot on location over 5 nights in and around Los Angeles in May 2009. We were very fortunate to receive the Panavision New Filmmakers grant and were awarded a 16mm camera package which was an amazing opportunity to shoot with. Thank you to Kodak for the film stock as well as the many people that helped and supported us throughout this process.
