Private Life Is In The Can!

Eric (Kevin Joy) and Christopher (Joe Briggs)

We have wrapped production on Private Life!  It was 10 intense and demanding days to be sure, but with such a great cast and crew, it was really a fantastic experience.

Production took us through a number of locations, including a number of places in Angeles National Forest; Mountain View Cemetery in Altadena, CA; San Bernardino National Forest; a private house in Van Nuys, CA; a sound stage at USC; and we even built a bridge in the parking lot of the Robert Zemeckis Center at school (a location often touted within our USC circle for its ability to become just about anything for shoots with hazardous conditions).

With principle photography completed, Amy Adler steps up to the plate to begin editing the film.  Transcoding and syncing is finished and the very first cut is now beginning.  Editing will take us through December, with Picture Lock scheduled at the very end of the year.

Behind the Scenes Videos!

Watch producer Billy Sullivan brave a massive log while location scouting 

Greg, Billy and the rest of the crew have been traveling all over Los Angeles county searching for the perfect locations for Private Life.  Along the way they filmed some video of Billy testing out a fallen tree.

Throughout production we’ll posting fun behind the scenes videos such as this so that you can see the film in progress and journey with our crew as they strive to bring this film to life.  And now you have your choice of viewing options!  We’ve got a new Vimeo channel set up here: https://vimeo.com/channels/privatelife, a new Youtube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/privatelifemovie.  And of course we’ll continue posting new videos directly on our blog, along with updates and photos of the production.

Thank you again for following our film!
