Young Ashley will be used in the flashback scenes of Ashley's mom’s departure. The character will be Ashley around the age of 8 yrs. old. She will be old enough to remember her mom leaving the family, but not exactly able to understand why.
When we cast young children, we are almost always impressed with how professional they can be. We are also equally amazed that no matter the role they can all seem alike. One could say you could cast “any old kid” and you would be safe. We think that actually discounts their talent and is not true. When we first saw Samantha Zell come into our audition room we were blown away by how professional and well put together this young girl was. She will play a small but important role in this film, and we are sure to have her back on many others down the line!

When you get an extra day to relax after working. Bliss.

Taking 5 mins out.

DAY 5 - Too tired for captions...

Emily Davis is Ashley's mom and George's wife. She suffers from alcoholism and storms out one night when her daughter is very young. She gives Ashley a necklace to remember her by. She does not want to leave the family but her addiction is dragging her down, and she is powerless to stop it. One night after a bad rainstorm she is killed in a car accident.
When we needed a mom, a drunken mom, a belligerent mom, there was only one person we knew we had to call. Molly Lajoie (@Choreographer_molly) who stunned us with her real life performance of angry mom Alexa Rhodes in the film “I Love You”. Molly comes from a theater background and takes her roles very seriously, extending her theatrical prowess to the silver screen. We cannot wait for Molly to land in front of our cameras once again.

#throwback to Day 4 where (as always) we got by with a little help from our friends 🙌👯‍♂️👯‍♀️
.
A lil team making a big movie meant we needed all the help we could get-- Andre Champagne of @hollywoodtrucks hooked us up with free transpo, #DocksideStudio (ya know, of Arcade Fire, Flow Tribe, Leon Russell fame...) hooked us up with this antique gas pump, and we the crew had each others’ backs at every turn. We could only afford to have one art person on set each day so here the director, AD, APOC, and UPM all stepped up to lend our set dresser a hand... 🏅🤝🍻

Taking 5 mins to shade from the sun before we start filming again. Intense heat!

Danny is an extremely dangerous convict that recently escaped from a federal prison just outside of Millstone. He was convicted of murder, rape, torture and kidnapping. Just to look at him sends shivers down someone’s spine. While trying to make his way outside of town, he has an encounter with Ashley and George. Ashley is then kidnapped and he ties her up, leaving her trapped with this desperate man with nothing to lose.
Reel Z found out about “Danny” (Who is played by Gentry Lee) through the actress that will play Lisa Tiony in our film. It turns out they hail from the same area. Gentry sent in his audition and not only did he nail it, he was wearing orange at the same time. The fear that this young man sparked in our casting director pretty much solidified his shot at the role. It will be interesting to see the horrible bone chilling dynamic that is formed between “Danny” and his victims in the film.

Jack Wolfe is the leader of a team of Deputy U.S. Marshals in the film. He befriends with Ashley's Father and has come to assist in Ashley’s Recovery. Jack. He is a no-nonsense by the book lawman who knows how to get things done. Jack is someone that fights for the needs of others. He is a headstrong humanitarian and always gets his man.
The role of Jack Wolfe went through many different changes before the screenwriter finally settled on his current persona. Even before he was a Marshal, the role was being looked at as some sort of authority figure. Enter into our casting a man who is no stranger to authority figures on screen, and being a humanitarian and an all-around good guy off screen as well. Reel Z is proud to have Carl Bailey (known to some as “coach”) flying in from the great state of Texas to execute this role. Carl also had a role in the Tarantino film Django Unchained.

So excited for you to see these ladies shine and so grateful to be even a small part of this wonderful new chapter in their lives: #BookClub is NOW PLAYING in theatres! Get tickets now! #actress #DanceInstructorIrene #Repost from @bookclubmovie #marysteenburgen #janefonda #dianekeaton #candicebergen @craig.t.nelson #andygarcia #bookclubmovie #romanticcomedy #comedy #lovestory #indiefeature

One hotel done, another to go. The way it’s done on a destination lifestyle film.

Camera team abroad. As glamorous as it looks, carrying kit over was a mission. Nonetheless, so worth it.

Lisa Tiony is a bright and kind young woman. She has worked at the store for a couple years. She loves the outdoors. She has a limited knowledge of Utah, but she knows of a small store near where the Davis family will be travelling. She advises George to go there to get better information on the local area where he and Ashley will be staying.
When Reel Z was looking for a customer service clerk, the search was not easy. We had to find the right mix between beauty, authority, friendly demeanor and a “real world” image. When we saw Aeryn Peterson’s self-tape come in, there was a strong feeling we had found what we needed for the role. Aeryn will be traveling to us from the Santa Fe NM Region. We feel she brings just the right amount of bubbly awesomeness we needed for the role. Be sure to follow our feed for more BTS with Aeryn and the rest of the cast and crew!

Happy #femalefilmmakerfriday! Our new favorite holiday as we gear up for our first feature — and like Shabbat we are going to celebrate every damn week. (One of these things is not true.) First up: the incomparable multi-hyphenate vampiress of our DREAMS: @zoelisterjones. We’ve been following her (stalking, more like) since we illegally streamed Breaking Upwards many moons ago. She acts, writes, & produces with her company @misterlisterfilms and made her directorial debut with @bandaidfilm last year. Which she also wrote the music for. ALSO she’s a huge advocate of requiring food labeling of GMOs in the US.
zlj, we love you. .

Great thing about this job as a cinematographer, it gets me to places where I normally won’t in a typical 9-5. Love my job, work hard, play hard.
