Posted by Becky (los angeles, United States) on 15 November 2011 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

Saying hello to everyone as the withdrawals have gotten too serious to ignore. : )

This is the webpage for the film. It's still under construction but we are moving along - A great experience so far. : )
Expect to wrap by the end of November.

Looking forward to doing some serious blog
hopping to see what everyone is up to.

Great study of light and shadow - the limited color palette adds to the mood. So glad you were able to check in!

Twojays from Montana, United States

Hi! L.A. Native here, and feeling nostalgic as I look outside at the gray and brown world here and go elsewhere in my memory. I swear I have been in that house your website shows. Or maybe in a dream, or another movie, so very classic Los Angeles. Your photos are just fabulous. I will watch my fellow Angelino, and wish you best of fun and success with your film making.

19 Nov 2011 3:12pm

@Twojays: Oh! Montana! I've never been there. I hear it's beautiful and yes - sometimes gray and brown. I bet you miss it here sometimes then - yes? Thank you so much for your sweet note and creative support. I so much appreciate it! I will be sure to visit your blog as well.

BTW, I wanna pay for the mug-not a freebie!

Paunel from Romania

Layed on earth, opposite to Light, "compagnon" of the life forms from the moment of birth, the Shadow is the symbol of Death. The increase in weight with the ages as attraction to the Earth is the beginning of this force and her Victory is the Death.
Is good to understand the meaning of your subject (maybe)...

6 May 2012 3:59pm

@Paunel: ah - excellent information - thank you so much!

There's a strange tension in this one that is quite mesmerizing. I can't stop wondering what he's looking at. Top notch.
