A Truly Independent Romantic Comedy

Monthly Archives: November 2015


From April to June in 2013 our rag-tag group of filmmakers and actors traversed the cities of San Francisco and Guerneville, California to film “All the Others Were Practice”. We stole quick scenes on the streets and in shops, and spent entire days taking over apartments.

Here is a peek Behind the Scenes of “All the Others Were Practice”.


Twenty-One days of filming, spread over eight weeks. We strived to keep the actor’s filming days to 8 hours, and most days we did. We filmed all of the pages we intended to on every day, except for one. It was crazy and hectic and impossible, but no one worked more than an eleven hour day, and we were often home in time for dinner. Of course right after dinner we had to schedule and storyboard the next day.

“All the Others Were Practice” is a very small film. There were no equipment trucks, practically no crew, and absolutely no rules. With a lot of planning, dedication and love, this is how we made this film.

The office cafeteria proved to be the trickiest location to lock down. Two days before filming all of the cafeteria scenes, this was as much of a walkthrough as I could get for the location.
