Ruby Van Dweller Day 1

I really wanted to get this post out last Saturday, but a virus knocked me on my ass, and I've spent the past week in haze of switching between nodding off to Netflix, and staring at the back of my eyelids, but things are on the up and up and I have some wonderful pictures to share from the first day of shooting from Ruby Van Dweller.

Our day started at roughly 9:00 a.m. with some french braided pigtails and brutal temperatures.  The bulk of this day was all about the van dwelling, so we spent most of it outside; which if the weather felt like it looked, would have been perfect.  It was a little bit nippy, but thank God for blankets  and hot chocolate.  One thing is for certain I did love getting back in front of the camera.

I don't understand people who only want to act for one medium.  I think that both theatre and film have their benefits, and doing them back to back has highlighted them really well.  I have an almost cartoonishly expressive face, so film provides a nice challenge in regards to subtlety as well as the opportunity to get exactly the right performance that you want.  It's very different from theatre where you get instant rewards for your performance every night through audience applause, laughter, and have this sort of new age energy link with people you've never met before.

Tomorrow is our second and last of shooting for Ruby Van Dweller, and with enough coffee and antibiotics I think it'll be a good one.  Below are a collection of pictures taken by Gaby Deimeke Photography.  Gaby was our on set photographer and she did a kick ass job covering the shoot Friday, and hopefully we'll have some more pictures from our shoot tomorrow.
