A distraught young woman chooses to end things when her fiance abandons her, only things don't really end!
Emily's Bridge, located in Stowe, VT. is supposedly haunted (emilysbridge.com), and inspired a feature film that Zee and I are about to release: "Bridge Crusader."
We had trouble lighting the night scenes, as we misplaced our main portable light and had to rely on a large flashlight -- and the car lights -- when we could angle them correctly, with the use of a large mirror. It didn't really work, but the film still came out well enough with what we did capture. Much of this is due to Mark Boyajian's gripping narration.
Another difficulty was that we miscalculated how many feet we had for the film. We switched cameras in the middle of the shoot (if you notice, there is one scene were Emily is running in slow motion. We needed a second camera for that effect) and this reset the meter. We thought we were about 20 feet in to the reel, but we were closer to 30. Hence we ran out of film and we had to use the ony other cassette we had: a color (100 D) stock...this kind of worked out, as it describes a shift in the film -- the film goes B&W again as nightime approaches.
It was about an 8-hour round trip to Stowe, VT from our home in Franklin, MA, so, setting up for this film was difficult due to our favorite limitation in filmaking: time constraints.
All in all, though, we feel the film is pretty noteworthy. Most of the cinematography did come out well, and the acting was right on, as was the narration. And we should also consider the significance of actually filming in "thee" Emily's Bridge.
