After months of pre-planning and pre-production, Sideshow had its first rehearsal Sunday, January 25.
As writer and director (Roger Scholz), this will be my first feature length film, as well as the first feature length film for Allied Productions. It will never stop being amazing to watch talented actors give life to characters and events that, up till this point, have only existed on paper, in our minds and in discussion with the crew.
On hand for this rehearsal were veteran actors; Mark Boyd and Jason Roth, and two fresh faces to the film acting world; Esther Tuttle and Valerie Boerema. All of whom are unbelievable talents and are exceeding all expectations! The rehearsal also gave cast, myself and Ceci (Director of Photography) a chance to all come together on the overall scope and vision of this segment of the project. We established blocking, camera positions, flow, angles and a laundry list of little things too numerous to state here. Keep looking for more updates, inside scoops, behind the scenes moments, screen tests and more on the Sideshow film project as production moves forward.
