February 22-28

This past weekend, casting began on "A Reasonable Doubt." Director Tahir Jetter, along with co-producers Perry Pang and Mike Sweeny, auditioned 20 actors for the story's roles.

Casting was very successful--our team has been able to make several choices for potentials who we hope to call back.

We are in the process of holding more auditions this weekend--Saturday the 28th and March 1st.
From there, we’ll be having callbacks the following week--March 7th and 8th, after which time we will be able to decide our cast.

In the meantime, we're finalizing locations--

This past Thursday, February 19th, director Tahir Jetter headed to the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, NYC, and after surveying several areas without much success, by chance stumbled upon a location which our team has decided will do well to serve as the primary setting for most of the film's action. The area's abandoned warehouses, desolate ambience, and considerable lack of pedestrian and vehicular traffic make it a choice location both aesthetically and practically for the production.

It was a cold, windy night and somewhat difficult to get long exposures, but some decent stills resulted, some which will give us a good idea of the space in which we'll be working and a good idea of how to proceed with our production strategy from here on in.


This Weekend—

and Director of Photography Max Nova will head to the location
and begin the process of sizing up the area for potential

  1. This is really cool that you're also following your thesis' progress with a blog. I wasn't sure if I'd have the discipline to keep my blog updated but this will prove to be a useful exercise in flushing out ideas...

    Kudos! And thanks for the characteristically well thought out and eloquent response...
