Last Day of Principal Photography

May 12, 2019

 Tomorrow is the last day of shooting SOMETIMES I DREAM IN FARSI.


It's been quite a whirlwind.

 In May, we went across the country and filmed along the way. Then, I edited a draft of the films all of July. Then, I thought we were done.


I started showing it to friends, and they were like: "It's great! Go for it!"


But a few were wondering if I'd put in more stuff about the road trip and other things I left out of the draft version.


In October, I shot another film in Malta (see above) with Caveh Zahedi. After we started editing that film, Caveh suggested doing a camera address and narrate the Farsi film. 


So, I went home and told the story to the camera, but then I thought I needed to make it easier for myself, so, I drew out the whole story in storyboards. 


I figured I could sell these or put them in a gallery for people to buy to help fund the rest of the film. 


That's basically where we are now. We need about $15K to finish the film. Bare minimum. And I launched this SEED & SPARK campaign as of this posting.

My hope is that people will share it and spread the word. I'm fairly bad about broadcasting things these days. I just have no interest in being on social media, so hopefully, people can share the link via email or other things.


Maybe I can figure out a better way to get people involved. 


Who knows? Maybe people will just dig the paintings or the book of all the paintings and want them.


I have no idea.

Anyway, tomorrow, we film in a hair salon on Melrose with the whole family, Brad Warner, and other friends. My dad, Brad, and myself will do one final role-play.


We will see how this goes.


In the meantime, please buy a painting or contribute to the film via this link. We'll need everyone's help, because if we don't raise 80% of the funds, we won't get any. 


I'll let all of you know how it goes tomorrow.
