Hmm… how to get to the bottom of all this without appearing the absolute fool? I pull a producer friend aside and in my most hushed and embarrassed whisper ask: “So, is Luis, like, going to reverse the video so it looks like I’m walking down the stairs normally?” And, “Why aren’t I in the rest of the video?”
Laughter. Then wide-eyed concern. “Didn’t you read the treatment?” she says. “I did! I did!” I exclaim, “I just never actually understood it is all.” “Well then,” the producer grins, “maybe it’s best you just wait and see…” And so I go home. And I wait. Until I see.

And watch Mess on a Mission if you haven’t already!

"I have an awful script but I think it’s amazing.
It will make you famous. Please work for free and bring your RED.
I heard the RED camera is so great it shoots a movie by itself.
It can do the lighting, framing and even focusing by itself.
The rest we can fix in post. I want to shoot RAW. So we don’t need to rent any lights."
