stuntman

making a movie by Katherine Yaksich

I’m 3 months into making my short film, knee deep in preproduction with casting, meetings, trying to coordinate a complicated stunt on the streets of NYC, and a whole list of other things. I’m all in pouring my heart and soul into this project, switched to 7 day workweeks, and forget to eat lunch sometimes. Despite feeling overwhelmed and alone at times, I also feel empowered and able to bring this project to life in a beautiful and compelling way. So many people have been supportive, generous, and willing to help, even strangers (friends of friends of friends of friends of friends, etc.) that don’t even know me. I can’t thank you enough. And I’m learning something new and growing every moment along the way. I absolutely love it and I’m beyond grateful.

I’m blown away by the hundreds of actors that have responded to my casting call. Thank you! I wish I could audition every single one of you, but that is impossible. The amount of talent/passion/dedication/hard work out there is truly remarkable. Keep kicking ass. You inspire me.

I have high hopes for this film and am working towards completing it in time for the Sundance Film Festival deadline in September. If all goes to plan, principle photography should commence in 3-4 weeks (OMG!)!!

Shit is getting real, real fast. Stay tuned folks…

Much Love,
Reuben
