I haven’t been blogging lately because of my busy schedule but, today I want to share with you my experience of shooting behind the scenes of the web series, FemVamp.com
If you haven’t seen it yet, click on the link below.
Sometime back in the summer, I got a call/text from a good friend of mine, Guil Claveria, who is the festival director of the Shockfest/Mockfest film festival.
He asked me if I was interested in doing still photography for his production that was taking place at the abandoned but not forgotten Linda Vista Hospital. I personally have not heard of the place so I googled it…I am not a fan of scary movies nor like scary stuff but after reading about the location, I became intrigued and anxious to see what it looked like inside.
The day before the shoot, I met up with Guil, Alesha and their crew to check out the so-called haunted hospital. I can’t say that I didn’t get chills walking down the dark hallways and looking in places that used to be patient rooms and wonder… I was however, excited to be in the in the boiler room … it was so dark and creepy that my mind was full of ideas. I was aching to be creative but at the same time I was anxiously waiting for something to creep up on me.
Aside from taking pictures I made some new friends such as Suzie Malone, Eren Ibarra, Sean Enns, Alanna Noel Bernhof, Alan Bernhoft, Amber Melfi, Jona Xiao, The Baker twins- Shauna Baker and Shannon Baker and the rest of the crew. Thank you for making making us feel at home… I had a blast working with all of you.
I want to thank Guil Claveria and Alesha Claveria for believing in my work and for giving me this opportunity to be creative.
Most of all I want to thank my dear friend Kimberly Olbrich for inviting me to shoot Shockfest/Mockfest and introducing me to the lovely couple Guil and Alesha Claveria.
