During production in fall of 2012, cast and crew camped for 4 days and 3 nights in the San Bernardino National Forest. These are a small collection of pictures from that time. The location was beautiful. The hours were long. The cast and crew were fantastic, in great spirits, tireless and completely dedicated.
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.
