• Evolution of locations, from 1-4. First, a relatively crappy film that we shot in 48 hours behind my house in an alley. No planning, no professionalism. Second,a small but well-planned., location-scouted mini shoot with 2 crew and 2 cast that we shot on an amazing cliff in Palos Verdes, no permit. Third, a location I actually got from being persistent and nice, for my film "Terminated"; it's a huge cubicle array and we had permission from the department that managed this space. Fourth, a location from my most recent film "All I Want Is Silence" - a complete result of blind luck, but I spent 4 days location scouting in order to have this blind luck happen to me - also, with official permission from the owner.
