Three is free...

Again, there were just three of us at the shoot today. (Camera asst., "Fernando Luis," supporting female lead, "Erika Arias,"& myself-Lead Actor- Director.)

Fernando is an amazing actor, he plays a cook in this flick, and has been golden as Camera operator. I have a feeling he'll be making great films someday.

I can't stress the importance of working w/ minimal crew and actors.

We shot at my friends house using one of her rooms to cheat as Dante's apartment. Then we moved on to my apt. for the exteriors.

The whole shoot lasted about four hours, and no "B.C.D.'s! (behind the camera drama)

In terms of the scenes, Dante kills his ex-wife who came to collect on a pile of backlog of child support payments! This guy is a total psycho.

I'm near the END!!!!
