After a year and a half in which I had a baby, moved out of NYC (to the lovely city of Beacon), and produced a couple seasons of videodance events for Pentacle’s Movement Media Project, I’ve finally carved out some time to finish my trilogy of post-modern American adolesence, Fünf ‘n’ Twist. My goal is to put it in the “can” by June 21st, 2011 (Summer Solstice), and I’m happy to report that major progress has been happening! I’ve finished a rough cut of Part 2–an apocalyptic scene of the jaded and strung out prom couple in the future that provides a nice “twist” after the camp of the Prom scene in Part 1. I’ve trimmed down the prom sequence of Part 1 to its pithy essence, and J Why, my wonderful composer is getting ready to record the music for Parts 1 and 2 next month.
Funny enough, Part 3 in the park, which was the first sequence we shot (on no budget) way back in summer of 2007, seems to be holding up to the test of time and we’re not touching it for now. At the end, everything will need to be color corrected and mastered so it sits well together.
Here are a few tasty stills from Part 2:
Credits: Anna Brady Nuse, director; Kerrie Welsh, cinematography; Cast: Donna Costello (girl), Matt Sweeney (boy).
