next weekend is the last weekend for production on Selah and the Spades: an Overture (!!!). This is a photo we took after shooting “The Spaded Way” on our favorite treelined block in west philly this sunny Sunday afternoon.
Had a very full and very productive weekend shooting with Raegan (Paloma) and Angela (Selah) and can’t wait to shoot with all three of the main Spades next weekend for “Who Said?”
it’s going to feel so great to have these shot. i’m supposed to have been editing them as i went along but i quickly decided to leave them all til the end. working with these kids over the summer and working on the script for the feature and just working with these characters and stories means that what i shot at the start of the summer feels so different from what i shot today, what i shot yesterday, what i’ll shoot next weekend. but that’s ok. i’m working on an abstract about Selah, and the Spades.: an Overture, and about how it’s a process in order to write the feature project, etc. So, yea. ok. /diary
