Final Pre-Production Underway
Happy Father’s Day to all you Dad’s out there! We’re here in Lancaster planning for the first day of shooting for the United States of Autism movie which is only 2 days away. That’s right folks! We’re less than 48 hours to kick-off for the first autism film to capture the triumphs and tragedies of diverse families all across the nation, all in one place, and all to change the course of autism forever.
Rene, our DP, is in town going over the new equipment. Rosleny is learning all the setups and take-downs. Sugey is figuring out the final changes to our shot lists. Cassie is sleeping after finishing her last horror movie shoot, 7 straight 20 hour days, and joins us tomorrow. We’re all excited about the future, the possibilities that are unfolding before us. Everything seems to be coming into focus.
The first shots take place at 8pm on Tuesday at the Lancaster Amtrak station. Be sure to follow us if you want to know how a movie like this gets made as we blog everyday from the set. We love you all, and can’t wait to hear from you when we’re, as Willie Nelson says, “on the road again!“
