Tech Talk: This is my first time recording a full project with an iphone. It was a very low budget film. The idea came to me at the time I moved to Hollywood. I started to meet a lot of people and I was very excited about produce something, but I had no camera, just my phone. The script was made in one night, no rehearsals because there was no time. It was approximately 12 Hrs of continuously shooting between exteriors and interiors. I was leaving Los Angeles the next day, so everything was quite a rush.
The film is based on a true story.
