This short film is my “1-2-1” project from my Production Workshop class at Chapman University. “1-2-1” stands for 1 page, 2 characters, 1 location, and the goal of the project was to create a scene that reveals something about the characters’ relationship.
This is the first time I’ve worked with actual actors on a project at Chapman, and the first time I’ve worked with actors since “Dead Wrong” way back in 2003, and it was great to see my characters come to life through Maggie and Ethan’s portrayals. My goal was to explore the moment when they both realize that their understanding of the nature of their relationship is out of sync with each other, and I think we accomplished that. All told, I’m pretty happy with the way this film turned out. It’s fantastic to be making movies again, and I can’t wait for the next one (nor will I have to wait long).
