Synopsis: A consumer affair rep who works from her apartment decides to play hooky one day, and spends her time calling random people, looking for new connections.
Production: The majority of the film is in splitscreen. We decided early on to shoot both sides of the splitscreen simultaneously if possible, in order to get two performances that worked together in real time (instead of the alternative, where the two sides of the splitscreen would be separated by a week or more in the production schedule.)
To accomplish this, we shot with two cameras in two rooms simultaneously at the same location, one dressed as Kyle’s apartment and the other dressed as Erica’s apartment. The director and I were positioned between the two sets and watched both monitors.
Directed by David H. Steinberg (American Pie 2, Puss in Boots, Slackers) Produced by M. Elizabeth Hughes, Keetgi Kogan Starring Sam Jaeger (Parenthood), Sara Rue (Rules of Engagement), Amanda Crew (Sex Drive, Charlie St. Cloud) Format: Red 4K
