I have a bad habit of having my story and plot changed on the shooting day. This may seem risky, but I tend to ride on the emotion of the moment. For example, on the shooting day for exercise 2, the Friend’s Courtyard had an unusual vibe of life and light. It may very well be perhaps that I have never been there at eight o’clock in the morning. I took advantage of this unknown life and light from the Friend’s Courtyard and had half of the shoot focusing on how the actress interact within this environment, hoping to bring out the natural grace of a woman lost in her own world, gliding across the world of verdant carpet and the orange bricks.

We spent roughly two weeks with Tony on a directing workshop. The workshop required the students to work on skills such as improvised acting and plotting, engaging and connecting with the character’s emotion, directing actors and casting.
