Shoot Date: November 22, 2011
So I met Misty back in January of 2010. Not really sure how we ended up meeting up, but I'm positive the first time we did, we took photos. Since then we've had many random photographic adventures. We've randomly adventured in Topanga Canyon, had a few crazy deals in cemeteries and industrial alleys. Most recently, she moved out to Texas to her family, to raise her son. I'd be lying to say that I don't miss her, because she was always down for anything.
While I was looking through some archived shots to post for a throwback thursday on Instagram, I came across this shoot we did, that wasn't publicised as much at other ones we did. So I figured this would be the best place to post some.
It won't tide me over for long though. I can't get enough of her inspiration and excitement.
Luckily she'll be back in October, where I plan to get in as much photo time with her until she has to leave back to Texas.
I met Andi a few months ago while shooting "Taking Back Tuesday," a club night run by Emo Night LA. She was introduced to me along with a whole bunch of friends that I'm sure you'll meet at some point in this series' existence.
On the actual first night of meeting her, we ended up hanging out after I was done photographing, and we got some Mexican food and chilled at her place for a few. I got to learn more about her and realized she was hella cool.
Yeah, I said "hella."
Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and she asked if I'm down to take some photos of her where she said:
I'm down to do it as an almost editorial shoot, as if you were interviewing me. aside from that, throw in a couple of solid close ups, headshot-esque, fashion-esque... I'd be entirely thrilled.
I figured this might as well be a good excuse to do another 5 questions. Once the photo taking was finished, we grabbed a drink and sat down at 82, where we had an alcohol-laced interview about the writer turned actor. So here goes!
G: You dabble in both acting and writing. How many screenplays have you written?
A: I currently have four or so scripts in development. I completed my first one when I was 18, which has never seen the light of day because I didn't want it to. I just needed to get that one, completed, 110 page screenplay under my belt. But at the moment, I’ve been working on the first script that will officially make it on to a screen, entitled "Katharsis." My team and I are in the earliest stages of pre-production right now, just recently established the project's production company, Fourth Take Films, LLC. I dig slice-of-life films, but my personal favorite is "Rift". It's a pretty big budget dystopian, sci-fi [screenplay], a lot of fun to write - "Hunger Games" meets "Death Proof" meets "28 Days Later." I'm really stoked about it, but I'm not rushing it because it IS such a big budget project. So, I have this slice-of-life film, "Katharsis" first. Then I'll follow it up with a thriller I've been working on called "Bishop," then I'd like to follow that up with "Rift."
