That’s a wrap!
NEW wrapped principal photography on July 30, 2013, after 6 days of shooting.
Filming NEW was an amazing, grueling, wonderful, exhausting experience. I’ve never worked harder, never stressed harder and never had as much fun doing anything in my life. My feet still hurt. I lost 10 pounds.
But let me be clear, it wasn’t just me: everybody worked their butts off. The cast and crew labored tirelessly for long hours, more often than not in their socks out of respect for the homes we were shooting in. I have nothing but gratitude for everyone who bought into this dream that is NEW: actors, crew, and the friends, family and strangers whose donations made this production possible.
I have yet to review the footage in depth, but I know in my gut we got everything we set out to get. Every time I looked at the monitor I saw something beautiful, and every time an actor opened his or her mouth something wonderful came out.
While the visual effects department is already busy designing our effects shots, editing the film is next up for me and I can’t wait.
