We got the chance to work with Julianne Moore and Ellen Page, on a tour to promote their film “Freeheld“. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, decorated New Jersey detective Laurel Hester (Julianne Moore) wishes to leave her pension benefits to domestic partner Stacie Andree (Ellen Page). The film is based on “Freeheld“, the documentary by Cynthia Wade.
Shot at Google HQ in Mountain View, we were all excited to meet the cast and they didn’t disappoint.
That’s where I got to be an “extra” in the event. Although not intentionally. Sitting off to the side in my place next to the Audio Mixer, something hit my immune system and it reacted. And with a smile, so did Julianne Moore and Ellen Page (sorry guys!). Watch the video to see.
After the shoot, I told her that, as the Director, I have the final cut and we’d take it out. She thought it was funny and wanted it left in. So there ya go, Julianne. Never say this Director didn’t give you input![youtube_video] 3d_osN0TCUo [/youtube_video]
