A Seasonal Potluck and 2009 Nightingale Trailer Shoot

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Pumpkins and a sign with foil letters saying THANKS FOR SUPPORTING CHICAGO CINEMA

We cordially invited you to FRIENDSGIVING, a seasonal potluck gathering. The kitchen was crazy. Turkey and tofurkey, hot cider, cashew gravy, drunken pears. It was truly a feast. Special thanks to Chloe Connelly for helping to prepare that glorious bird.

And before, during and after we ate, we shot the first ever Nightingale trailer- a stop motion animation hamhock on 16 mm. Thanks for lending your faces to the piece and a special shout-out to our first rate crew, Jodie Mack, Chloe Connelly, Tim Weidelman, and Scott Foley led by the fearless and beautiful Lori Felker. Thanks also to Jason Halprin for lab help. Be on the lookout at The Nightingale in early 2009 to see what we made. We’re looking at you Jason (whether we want to or not.)

Postscript: here is the trailer.
