The McBride Shoot

 On my third movie shot at Gammons GulchGarrett Moldrem (center) of Made of Love Films directed.  He also shot McBride's "sequel," the local-award-winning Blackwood.

As the Behind-the-Scenes videographer, I still stepped in and played boom operator, grip, and even acted in a scene.

Bill Couch is a local staple in the industry.  He plays the bartender in this prequel and a bar patron in Blackwood.  I told him he must have been fired for watering down the drinks.  "Hey, that's how the bar makes a profit...."

I'd been FaceBook friends with David Hight for a few years before I first met him at the McBride script reading.  He carries the exposition load in this movie as the town sheriff Rupert Jones.  

Nick Murray (center) is a Pima Film classmate of mine.  He was DP on the 2009 Pima films Arizona Chainsaw Massacre and Apprehension.  He was happy to be on the camera crew, but I railroaded him into the funeral scene, because I was too fat for the one spare pair of pants left in wardrobe and I knew his skinny butt could fit in them.  The director wanted me in the scene, but since it wasn't on the call sheet, I left my costume at home and dressed for comfort on the set.  My character would have been in the back row at the funeral anyways, thus first out of the church and not in the scene.  That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    She was make-up/ Audio/ Production Assistant, as far as I could tell.

    OK, I just wondered. She looks tough enough to be a good gunfighter or cowgirl.
