Scouting for a Bridal Shop
Sam and Maria spent a day in San Francisco touring a few key bridal shops for possible locations to shoot, and for ideas on lighting, layout, color and set design. It was a beautiful day in the city, and we took advantage of the weather and the positive reception we had everywhere we went.
With gratitude to our assistant Olivia, we took a lot of photos and tried to be as stealth as possible.
Some issues for consideration: parking, lighting, outdoor space, inside space, ability to get equipment in and out.
Some people have been asking what our vision is, what the look and energy of the film will be. Although Mick and Maria had a general kind of energy they wanted to communicate with the script, the look of the film will have to be defined ultimately by what location is available to us and how we can work with that. Since we don't have much of a budget, we can't rent a space, rent props and create our own space. Someday...
We have a list of locations to look at in the East Bay and North Bay, after which we'll start the dialogue with the bridal shop folks about days and cost.
Special thanks to Amanda at Bella Bridesmaids and Jinza the amazing designer for their hospitality and kindness. Thanks also to Glamour Closet for letting us pop in unannounced. Love the red textured walls.
