The little movie that could. Or at least I hope! It's been a year since we wrapped principal shooting on Harrison's Closet. We finished with much fanfare but something about it still seemed not quite done.
Christopher Barrett, our DP, and I scratched our heads over why this just didn't feel right. We had an editor come in and do some work, and after seeing the results I felt the film was
unsalvageable and a failure. It looked gorgeous, but it was missing a key component in the script to tidy it all together.
So 365 days later (almost to the day), an additional scene came to me. Writing it and thinking about each character gesture and word -- and what that would mean in terms of creating that cohesion was paramount. It all has to mean something in the end. The devil is in the details even if the detail is minute.
I'm happy to say that we'll be picking up one more scene, taking place approximately 15 years after the rest of the movie (you know how much I love dressing everything for a specific era). This one tiny scene, which will be less than 3 minutes in length, is what HC needed to finally move forward.
Filming will take place in February.
