Well, Rob Doggo and I took a road trip to see the solar eclipse in Southern Idaho back in 2017 and this is the end result. If you have not see a total solar eclipse, you really should. The difference between partial eclipse and total is like the difference between 5 and 100. Hope you enjoy this short film! -A

ACTORS: Here are five very practical tips. They are all good, but my favorite is continuity. Nothing will make the Director and Editor more happy than you matching your movements in each take.

Are any of our FB friends into modern dance? Thinking of a future project that would include a script idea that could be interpreted using dance instead of dialog.
