Checkout my Google+ Hangout with filmmakers Todd Theman & Trica Grashaw as we discuss the evolution of their latest project, Little Black Lie, from inception to pre-production. I had them live in-studio for a spirited and informal chat about the perils, rewards and challenges of bringing Todd’s singular vision to the big screen. Todd will star in the film as well as produce and direct from his own screenplay while Tricia will serve as producer and art director for the modestly budgeted independent feature. We’ve embedded the YouTube live stream of our Hangout here, or you can watch on our official Google+ event page.
Todd also had this to say about the making of the film: “In addition to the style of shooting, Tricia Grashaw and I have worked for over two years on subtly highlighting the ‘modern fairy-tale’ aspects of the story through casting, costuming, set dressing and location scouting. This attention to detail will only enhance the underlying themes of the story. When completed, all of these elements will be woven seamlessly together to create a funny, tragic, INTENSE work of narrative Art. Little Black Lie is a story whose time has come.”
Here is the teaser trailer for the film:
