And that’s a wrap on Crossing!
The cast and primary crew for this film consists of a linguist, a finance guru, a model and actress, another linguist, an engineer, and me, a guy who claims to know what he’s doing behind the camera and maybe gets a few things right here and there. My art director’s first words when I asked him to join the crew were, “I don’t know the first thing about art.” One of the actors had never acted before. Another hadn’t acted in years. A third knew nobody except me before auditioning (and kind of barely knew me anyway). And the fourth, my guy in the lead role, is so ridiculously unlike his character that he seems wildly miscast. Oh, and the composer lives two time zones away.
And yet, from the moment I cast or selected each one of them, I knew that they comprised the perfect team to make Crossing. We’re a band of misfits, in the best sense of the word, and I can’t imagine making this film with any other group. John Prud'homme, Tanner Shaw, Rachel Kelley, Eleanor Langthorne, and Ryan Anastasi… you guys are incredible. When we wrapped production today, I was a bit sad to see such an enjoyable and fulfilling project come to an end. But hey, that’s what the wrap party is for… and I’ll always count myself incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work with you all.
So… Crossing is wrapped. Now onto the next challenge of putting it all together. Luckily, I’m setting a due date for myself.
We look forward to welcoming you to Crossing on December 11.
