I am so very proud of my cast and crew. These are some talented, hardworking people, and I would be glad to work with them again. I am eternally grateful to my director of photography Anthony Griffin, the 1st AD John Kangas, and the production manager Liz Merriman, as well as all of the other crew members who put so much work into this project.
These actors are among the finest I've worked with. David Gries, Joseph Scott Anthony, and Robert William Ford lent brilliant subtlety to their supporting roles. And then there are the leads. Dana Blackstone and Jack Michael Findley. Good grief, are those some talented performers. It's thrilling to see such dedication and commitment on set.
I'm pretty well exhausted now. It was an intense eight days of shooting, and I basically collapsed when it was all over, particularly since the final day was such an emotional roller coaster.
Still, the footage looks great, and I'm eager to start editing.
Again, thank you to everyone who has supported this project -- whether by direct participation, through financial support, or just by praying like the dickens for us. I feel truly blessed to have been surrounded by such a great team both on and off set. Here's to the future of BLACK PAPER ...
