Over the holidays I did the unthinkable. I shot a feature film. Yes, I went right from wrapping a pilot in Los Angeles to preproduction on The Rainbow Experiment in Manhattan which began filming on December 27th.
Things spiral out of control in a high school when a terrible accident involving a science experiment injures a kid for life.
Luckily the weather was kind to us and my family didn't kill me for being mostly unavailable for holiday festivities and relaxation.
We filmed for 12 days mostly at Xavier High School with an acting ensemble of over 30 key cast members. We were fortunate to have an amazing cast and our crew was endlessly devoted and talented.
For those of you who don't know much about The Rainbow Experiment, you can pop over here to read more about it here: The Rainbow Experiment.
This production was also a reunion for most of the 42 Seconds of Happiness cast and crew. Both films were written and directed by Christina Kallas, cinematography by Dave Sharples, and our cast included 42 Seconds vets Robert Z Grant, Laura Pruden, Chris Veteri, Lauren Sowa, Catherine Cobb Ryan, Vandit Bhatt and John J. Concado.
I'll keep you updated on this film as we wade through hours and hours of footage and navigate post production.
