30k in Donations - In A Beat

We want to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to all of the incredible donors who are making this film possible! We are up to 30k!

THANK YOU

More Gear - In A Beat

Jeff has been bringing in more gear. Looking forward to trying out some new things!

MORE GEAR

Jelly Fish - In A Beat

In the story, the mother is a crafty artist. Since she doesn't have the money to buy expensive decorations for her son, she makes them! 

Darrel loves the ocean, so she makes all kinds of hand-crafted ocean paraphernalia. 

Bella Wattles, our production designer, let Natasha and Tess Jacobs make the jellyfish. But she has a bunch of exciting decorations in store - more photos on the set soon!

MAKING THE DECOR

Working on Location

We are shooting the film at an apartment in Westwood. We are currently working in the apartment to give ourselves ample time to design the space. We want to make sure even the smallest items are researched and chosen with purpose.

But when we first moved all the gear in, it just looked like a big mess!

WORKING ON LOCATION

Donuts for the team - In A Beat

This is really a family effort - Avianna Mynhier, Natasha's sister, has not only offered story advice for years, but she also brought surprise donuts for the team!

DONUTS FOR THE TEAM

Though we filmed in a loft without any bedrooms, we found a way to squeeze in a lot of people and equipment! We filmed for three days in this Westwood apartment and one day at a dance studio.

Behind the Scenes!

In the loft we can see Jeff Hammerton shooting the bedroom scene, while our producer Hannah Kallaoun watches from below.
