Random Scene: “Emma Leaves Home (Again)”

Here is a rough cut of the Big Emotional Climax from the movie. Luke (Ryan Stone) and Danielle (Tara Everhart) continue their argument about Emma (Vanessa Long), and Emma decides it’s not realistic to try and stick around any longer. The song is “Everybody Here is a Cloud” by Cloud Cult. We have a few edits to make (example: weird black flashes, huh?) but it’s mostly finished.

Enjoy!

Random Scene: “Emma Cleans House”

Here’s a scene from about the halfway point in the movie, when Emma (Vanessa Long) finally gets to be alone in the house she grew up in, after being away for the prior 10 years. I really like the tone of the scene, and it’s a nice quiet moment before we get into the Poker Party scene. We shot most of the scene during the last day of the non-stop 6 days of principle photography, after most of the other actors had headed back to LA. The song used in the clip was “Bones for Dr. Swah” by the band Wooden Wand, but we couldn’t get permission, so I asked Nate Ballard (who plays Emma’s sort-of love interest Tad) to let me use one of his songs. When I can, I’ll upload the final version of the scene.
