Between takes while waiting for the dance floor scene, 1st A.D. Mollie Caselli talks with the cast Sonia Lindner as a party goer, Christy Lynn Arvin (Lila Mae), David Kono (John Yee) and Kachain Thongmanee (2nd A.D. who also plays "Shanghai")
Actor and friend Antonio D. Charity filled in as a Production Assistant to help me out...and Adam Jaffe did the same for Mollie Caselli...but ended up making his acting debut as a customer who can't pronounce French words on the menu.
The model's makeup room was built with the same tables used to make the ADA's office and Moe Savitsky's office and we added a mirror with clipped on lights (on loan from wonderful art crew member Michael A. Thompsonj (who I hired from the InfoList.com and lots of mirrors - brushes - hair spray and makeup.
We built the set for the Red Carpet out of black wrapping paper and cut out logos made by Lorel Keiko Saiki on her computer and printed out at Kinkos...all very inexpensive...and we used a sea foam/greyish color for wrapping paper on the bottom trimmed with black construction paper to create a sort of art deco look that I had seen in a magazine and lucky for us we found a small red carpet on Fairfax in L.A. to be our red carpet.
Building the Set for Pink Slip - Part 5 - It's Complicated....the Mexican Restaurant..built with the same yellow fabric we later used to cover Suzie's sofa and place mats and runner from Pier 1 and Pinatas from the Party Store...really inexpensive...and that great bar in the background is just a yellow sheer piece of fabric hanging from the ceiling with the same bar we always use but covered with different wrapping paper.
The crew and our Bernie Gewissler who helps me put it all together as line producer and oftentimes as A.D....Bernie is my sanifty...when he is there. Kaitlin Snyder looks on as she waits to hear and action.
Making the sofa slipcovers for Suzie's living room and cutting the logos for the red carpet in the large basement room that we shoot in and build our sets out of wrapping paper....told you we are low budget.
Laurel Keiko Saiki holds the red velvet rope we created from a pool toy and red velvet fabric as she stands in front of the Red Carpet backdrop we made from black wrapping paper on top with grey and black wrapping paper on bottom to create a sort of art deco look and the wonderful logos she designed and made for us on her home computer and then printed out at Kinkos...all very inexpensive.
