forking at last
|Aerli Austen & J.R. Adduci, making thespian magic.|
It was a grand production - with over twenty people on set and piles and piles of equipment - but the real thrill for me was seeing the (exceptionally talented) actors bring my words to life. It made me boingy inside, so I'll say it again - they brought my words to LIFE.
As always, I loved being on set. There is an energy that happens when you get that many creative people in one place - a thrilling in the air that I haven't experienced anywhere else. It's not only that, though. There is also a sense of culmination, of climax. So much solitary work has gone into making the filming moment possible and so much solitary work is left for post-production; but for those few moments, art-making is a communal event that feels like something bigger than all its individual parts.
I can't wait to (someday) show you the finished product; but for now I will leave you with some behind-the-scenes stills.
