Book Trailer Part II

So yesterday was, in a word, rad.

Imagine this: you've created a character. In your mind, he's clear as day: tall, dark wavy hair, green eyes. A searching gaze that hides... things. Things you'll have to read SACRED to find out about.

And then imagine that you had the unique pleasure of watching three cameramen--all of whom are easy on the eyes, by the way--film an actor--also not painful to look at--as he becomes your character.

Yep. Pretty freaking cool.

So here are some pictures I took.

This is Alex. He's Australian. He was one of the camera guys yesterday.

Here he is again.

This is Mike. He co-owns red14films. He has many cool tattoos and a tank top that I can't show you from the front because... well, just because.

Here he is again. These guys take their work seriously!

Okay. In this shot Alex and Mike were figuring out something about lenses and in the background you can see Adam, the other red14films guy, talking with the actor. His name is Roby Sobieski. He was one of several hundred guys who answered my add on to play Will Cohen for a day. As soon as I saw his headshot, I was swooning. Here it is:

Mostly for the shoot Roby had to run around a lot. It wasn't that hot yesterday, but I guess that's easy for me to say from the sidelines. There were lots of bugs, though.

Here's Roby recovering from his run. Poor guy.

And a few more shots, just because:

It was a great day. 

This afternoon I get to go back to see an actress portray Scarlett Wenderoth, the main character in SACRED. Thrilling, thrilling.

Check back for more!
