As we’re all aware, I was recently back in Sioux City Iowa at the Western Iowa Technical Community College to make a movie (Much like I did last year when we made “Write-In 2012“). This time we shot a short sci-fi piece about Trash and Spiders and Laser beams. It was a lot of fun, and it’ll take a while to get everything edited together. In the meantime, though, here are some stills from set to quell the curiosity that would otherwise consume and kill you.
Fun Fact about shooting this film was that we shot in the server room at WITCC, which means that all of the wires that are going in and out of the shots are actually all of the internet for the entire school! It was an exciting location that proved to be a bit tricky to block in (I had only seen photos of it before getting onto set, and the room was simultaneously bigger and smaller than I had thought) and we had to have a member of the IT department watching us the entire time to make sure we didn’t unplug anything.
I was also glad to finally work with the immortal Jim Westcott for this project. If any of you have seen the work of Andrew Gingerich you’d most know Jim as Roger Deerborn in “Third Party ’08”, but he’s also been on the sets of “A Serious Man”. “Sweet Land”, and many independent features in the Minneapolis area. Jim was a pleasure to work with, as were our other two actors Matthew Hubert and Aundrea Marcoe.
