S.J. Chiro gave me a wonderful chance to visit a magical place north of San Francisco, and come along on a scouting/preliminary exploration for her film Lane 1974. Armed with a dream and a 5D, I shot some off-the-cuff footage for a fund-raising tone reel for the film.
Besides getting a chance to bond with her and her lovely producer Jennessa West, the excursion gave me a chance to shoot with commune families whose way of life really inspired me, and gave me a sense of just how lovely this script could be.
