Short shoot today-- easy, yet difficult. Easy because (1) it was short, (2) it didn't require a whole lot emotionally, and (3) with only one actress and natural lighting, it was pretty simple to coordinate.
It was difficult because of the way we shot though. We had a particular stylistic hiccough in mind when shooting, which transformed three short scenes into roughly eighteen even shorter ones. It's hard to get in character for a short scene, even harder when you've got eighteen of them, not a single one more than eight seconds long.
Adrienne rose to the challenge though, turning in a strong performance in what will be her character's introduction. So I guess it was an easy shoot after all. Given the circumstances, I say that's cause for applause.
