Caroline Overby is an actress currently working in New York. We met and dated in high school. Just about every time she came down for a visit she’d ask if we could shoot a film together. This was one of them. I knew I only had a day or so to shoot something with her, so I came up with this dark little one-take-wonder. Dean Jones is a great actor who understood just how to deliver the punchline to the scene. I shot this in an empty restaurant with a dolly track and the Panasonic HVX-200. At FilmSpark in downtown Raleigh, it was the opening film in their film slate, so it was nice to know that it was a good way to get the screening going.
