Test footage for Blake Cortright's upcoming psychological thriller, "Sparrowcrest Lane," slated to be released in winter, 2014.
Originally created for a directing assignment, the prompt was to direct actors through 25 shots of "business," while demonstrating the 25 basic building block shots of cinema. We did most of the shooting before sunrise and after sunset for the effect of blue hour. This was a stylistic experiment for me as well as a directing exercise.
