We just wrapped the shoot of my latest short 'Tears of Apollo', a darkly comedic horror drama about a woman (@doompriestess) who, while trying to kill herself during the apocalypse, is confronted with a person finding her, a sarcastic and intrusive man (@baphometatron) who only seems to make things worse, leading up to a soul draining and depressingly bleak finale.
This is a shot our special effects artist James Bell (@veryfinecrapvideos) took on set. The wound couldn't have turned out better.
Thanks again to everyone involved, it was an absolute honor and pleasure working with you.
On a side note:
It'll be interesting to see how many people will unfollow me for this picture.
“I’m a Swedish man, raised in Stockholm, but I’m not blonde and my eyes aren’t blue. I don’t look like the stereotypical Swede, because I was born to Moroccan parents. Diversity has always been at the centre of my life and I offer my utmost respect to Deloitte for championing and shining light on the huge importance of diversity.” Directed by @you_ness, this new film for @deloitte from @yr_anz marked not only his first project in Australia, but also one that's incredibly close to his own heart.

Notecard Prep. 1 Per Scene. Slug Lines + Descriptions + What The Scenes Are ABOUT [Not The Events Of The Scene]. Room Left For Actor Notes + Coverage Approach. What Happens Here Finds It’s Way To The Script + Shotlist, While Also Helping Me Breakdown The Script To See What The Writer Has Done w/ Structure [Shout Out To @janiobi!]. I’ve Already Had A Few Epiphanies During This Process That I Can Pitch During Meetings. By The Way...Prep Officially Starts Tomorrow. It’s Called #preprep#directorslife#insecure#hbo
Exactly today, last year- I was rehearsing with my actresses a complicated scene before we start filming my feature film the day after- 03/20/2017. That’s the pic her mom @joniclare took of us as we were prepping. We thought she was wrapped last year- and she was in tears on the last day of filming, but apparently I’m not done with her just yet. Here we are a year later and I still need to shoot a pick up scene with her, and @officialsavannahliles . Let’s hope they’re not like 5 inches taller and the audience go like they left a room and walked into the other looking more like their older sisters (if they had any) Lmao. Thank you @officiallyvictoriaclare for all the hard work and great performances and always giving a 100 percent- despite the long hours and days on set, and being in pretty much every single scene!! Your commitment and patience meant the world to me. I’ll definitely be working with you again. Thanks @angeladeej for being one of the nicest people I’ve worked with, with zero attitude. Your work on Pulp Fiction will always be memorable. Thank you @officialsavannahliles for your humor between takes and lightening up the mood. You’re a phenomenal actress and I’ll be honored to work with you again too. Check out her other feature “Prodigy” that’s now playing on all platforms, Amazon, Hulu- etc. Starring her as the lead. We’re gonna kill it with the pick up shoot! 💪🎬#rehearsalday#tbt#feature#film
Today is a golden day. A day to give 100%. Change your mindset and believe with hard work and a great attitude that you can achieve anything. You can stand out in the world, just like this magnificent Golden Flamingo. #tuesdaymotivation#goldenday#choosehappiness
