Director’s Location Scout to France Finalized
The director’s location scout for Strata’s next feature film The Camera has been set and the dates are July 5th through July 25th. Producer Wade Danielson and Director Terry Green will embark on an eighteen-day journey, scouting potential film locations from Paris to the Côte d’Azur and back. Working directly with various regional film commissions, they will cover more than 1,500 miles during their trip, visiting more than two dozen towns and villages, and will be posting progress reports on the film’s website at TheCameraMovie.net.
A number of related issues will be addressed during the scout, including the availability of French crews, housing and travel arrangements, camera and lighting packages, local casting, and several other matters related to filming overseas. This will be Strata’s first international production and planning it down to the last detail is crucial. “I’m excited about the scout,” said Green. “And to have a veteran producer with me who has helmed two of my previous films is invaluable.” The pair will take hundreds of photos and a good deal of video throughout their trek, and will upload it onto the film’s website at regular intervals. “It’s nice that we can share the experience with others as we go,” added Green.
Principal photography for The Camera is scheduled to commence in the Spring/Summer of 2014 and principal casting will be announced a few weeks prior to filming. The film’s leading character is an American and casting will be handled by Los Angeles based Aaron Griffiths, who has cast Strata’s previous two features. “We hope to find a young actor who can define the leading role and expect to conduct an extensive search,” stated Danielson. Co-starring and supporting roles will be cast in France, with a French casting director to be determined. We hope you’ll check this website and TheCameraMovie.net for updates on this exciting feature film production.
