I was asked at the beginning of the day to shoot a BTS by Paul Antico and Rick Macomber. Shot everything with my Canon 60d. Big thanks to Todd Mahoney for supplying me with great GoPro video!

Part of the July 1, 2012 "Under 3 Minute Film Challenge" sponsored by Anticipate Media and Macomber Productions. For this challenge each cinematographer, using a pen as a prop, had to produce a narrative script and shoot it in a few hours on location at The Willows Park in Salem, MA. In addition the phrase "This isn't going to be easy" also had to be used in the story.

The actors did an amazing job performing on such short notice. Thanks to all of the crew and special thanks to The City of Salem.
