On Set | Langham Huntington, Pasadena | Behind the Scenes of Love Arcadia

Picture is up! Camera? Speed. Sound? Speed. Mark it. A Marker. ACTION!

On the last day of January, we got up before the sun and headed to the gorgeous Langham Huntington in Pasadena. Call time was 7:30am, and this was day 15 of shooting for Love Arcadia. My friend Theresa had been working on this script for years, and she, together with two other friends, raised over $40k on Kickstarter to help fund this feature film. I was only on set for this very last day of shooting, but it was such a treat to be behind the scenes on all the movie magic. Here are some of my favorite moments from that day.
