Awake and Ovulate  (2007)  13 min   Raleigh, NC

Director: Nick Karner

Writer: John Kreilkamp

With: John Kreilkamp and Mary Rowland

IMDB SYNOPSIS: Adam and Eve are an average couple who have not-so average arguments. While Adam muses over the ridiculousness of celebrity gossip, Eve must deal with the harsh realities of a war in Iraq.

     I saw John Kreilkamp’s play version of “Wake Up” at a one-act play festival at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro, NC.  I asked him if he’d be interested in making it into a short film. He liked the idea but felt that his co-star onstage was far too young to be his wife. I agreed and we asked Mary Rowland, a great stage actress, to take the role.  He re-titled the script and we shot it at Mary’s home. 

     I was my own crew, as always.  I even make a brief appearance as a paper boy by setting the camera on the ground and riding past, hitting John with the newspaper.   I had bought a skateboard for dolly shots. These shots were pretty unnecessary when I think about it, and yet it added a level of professionalism that my other films lacked.  This was also the first time I paid for music in my films. I bought the rights to Kenny Rogers’ “Just Dropped In.” 

     On the day of the shoot, Mary hadn’t learned her lines. I was shocked and wasn’t sure if we’d be able to get through the film, but she came up with a genius idea. During the film, she’s reading a newspaper. While I set up my cameras, she painstakingly wrote all of her dialogue in the newspaper on separate pages so she would be able to turn them.  You’d never know that she was reading and it worked!
