These snapshots document the production of a short film, The Absurdity of Small Talk. Written by Noah Shaw, this poignant story about existence and memory came to life over this last year. This was the first project I’ve worked on as cinematographer, and it was a huge learning experience - and I am really looking forward to doing more video. Besides some behind the scenes shots, there are some glimpses of pre-production, makeup and wardrobe tests, and location scouting throughout Marin, especially around Tomales Bay. The final cut of the film is being finessed, but I can’t wait to share soon!
