  1. I met with Andrew Bower from Red Dog Records this weekend to work on the audio post production of the short film BEE. He was the location sound mixer on the set and now he does the audio post-production. He has been working really hard on the audio. Why work so hard on the audio?  Audio post production is key to make a film look great: it’s all about those details to make you feel that the dialogs were all recorded in the same take, that the bees are near you buzzing. That’s how you completely immerse the audience in the film and the story.

  4. In the editing room with Daniel last weekend, I realized I was missing a couple of shots to make the story flow better. We filmed them last night with Mike and with Emma as our hand model. We shot the close ups of the envelope with the pesticide label and the amarillo. In filmmaking jargon, it’s called a pick up shot.

  5. Since we didn’t have too much sunshine during the filming of BEE, we went out again on Thursday evening to get a few sunset shots and bee close-ups. The close-ups of bees I wanted to get have been hard to film. So we will have to go again and film next week…

  6. It’s a Wrap!

    We just wrapped three days of a fantastic shoot for the short film BEE. It went really well, and I enjoyed every moment of this creative process. Actually, I was so absorbed, I didn’t even take one single picture of the set. But the others have. I will share some photos soon. The cast and crew (16 people) were fantastic. We ended up the 3 days feeling “WOW, we’ve done something great.” Thanks again to all of you who worked on this project!!!

  7. Actor: Louie Alegria

    Louie Alegria will play the role of the sheriff Sam. I’m thrilled: he’s an excellent actor who had a great chemistry going on during the call back session with the other actors who will be in “BEE”. It was amazing to see this happening in front of my eyes. I expect it will be the same on screen. Check his bio on iMDB:

    I’m excited to have Mario Piccirillo to play the role of Mario the farmer who owns the orchard in BEE. His bio is on iMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0681549/
