The shooting was an intense adventure but full of memories I will never forget. Including one night when we were filming in Tao Restaurant that had been decked out to look like the casino in Macau and all of the actor's and Scorsese were sat at a table eating and talking. To actually see their faces and hear their voices and feel the auras was an experience I will never ever, ever, ever forget. To be in the presence of truly the elite of Hollywood, I felt inspired and more driven than ever that I am on the right path!
The commercial and film is restricted viewing in some countries but here is a news clip about it. P.S. I kept Brad Pitt's deodorant after he left his trailer as a little souvenir. Gross, but oh, so freaking cool!
I changed hats again and jumped behind the camera to become a wedding photographer and capture some photos for my Producer friend, Jennifer Lekuch and her Aussie husband Marek. I spent the afternoon with Jen taking pics of her getting ready, then we met Marek at the Fountain in Central Park for a few more photos before heading to a gazebo on the lake for the ceremony and some family photos too. We then headed to the Cafe in the Park next to the baseball fields where they served drinks and NYC snacks and an amazing wedding cake inspired by Bagels - it tasted like a croque en bouche but looked like a stack of bagels! So New York!
One last, "only in New York" moment I had was meeting an eccentric yet somehow wonderfully cliche, Italian Director, Robert Horvath Deva, randomly on the street and him casting me in a film that he was creating. I hope to enlighten you to some more details about this arty film soon but we filmed some guerrilla scenes around the city at a church and on the Highline which was strange but a lot of fun.
