The fictitious farewell to Brooklyn by our lead character Charley Parker was a bitterweet, or bitter-cold one. Filming in early March proved to be a chilly-challenge that pushed me, Gemal Woods, the Director/Cinematographer, and our lead actress, Naima Ramos-Chapman to our limits. It was two grueling days of gloves on then gloves off and seeking the refuge of intermittent sunlight for warmth.
We had technical challenges all throughout the weekend but after returning to DC and staying up several nights to review the footage, the weekend turned out just fine. Our production assistants Zhi Wang and Nick Young really made the shooting go a lot easier than expected.
With this, Episode #1 is pretty much done.
