It Begins

Zach here. With exciting news. When I got out of bed this morning (out of couch, to be accurate), all of the footage had finally finished compressing and was ready and waiting in editable form. Jesse and I began reviewing takes this afternoon and have started charting out the film’s course on paper. He even got started on the opening sequence as I ate burritos over his shoulder. It won’t be long at all until our first cut is finished. Get psyched.

Meanwhile, a reflection. Strolling down Bedford this afternoon, a passing SUV gave all of us pedestrians a treat: “Boom Boom Pow” by the Black Eyed Peas bumping from the stereo and out through the tinted windows. Suddenly, memories. Memories of Skateland, where they would play that song at least twice per session. Back west we used to go every Wednesday night…religiously. Once shooting got underway, however, we were either too busy or too tired to ever make it there again. In fact, our very last trip out there was after our very first day of shooting. That’s when I took this photo:

This is the kid that works the skate rental window. I think his name might be Hunter,  but I wouldn’t bet on it. Anyway, he was and undoubtedly still is consistently there to dish out skates begrudgingly…always with a side of sarcasm. Seeing this photo of him makes me smile, especially on account of what a kook he looks like in it. Here’s to you, Hunter. Or whatever your name might be.
