Just a quick note to say that the movie I shot in December, Somebody Marry Me, just won several awards at Hoboken International Film Fest, including Best Cinematography. It also won the jury award for Best of Fest and Best Actor. A few weeks ago it won the Audience Award at the Cinema at the Edge in Santa Monica.
Somebody Marry Me was all done in one continuous shot, and it was a real feat to pull off. Here’s a link to a story that explains how we did it.
Of course, I’m very proud of the win but it’s important for me to mention the talented team who worked with me on this. My Gaffer Brandon Alperin, Key Grip\Ninja Jason Webster, Producer Kimberly Stuckwisch, 1st AD Joe Suarez, and Production Designer Elvis Strange were all so important to making this happen and I know they feel a sense of pride that the movie’s winning these awards. The cast was also very impressive, pulling off a 98 minute romantic comedy in several locations all in one go, especially lead actor Ray Abruzzo who was in every scene. Finally, we never would have attempted it without the mandate from Director John Asher and Executive Producer Lamar Billups.
