I had the pleasure of working with a terrific, up-and-coming young actor named Gabe Vargas. Gabe adapted a monologue from Tyler Parry’s film “Why Did I Get Married” for an acting class, then impressed the audience at the 2010 IFNY Monologue Slam by doing an impromptu performance of it.
I switched between 3 floor cameras, two manned and one robotic, mixing straight cuts and dissolves. In post, I added the instrumental version of “Song Cry” by Jay-Z and Kanye West.
Overall, the piece worked very well.
