for Tarn and Carter,
well the movie was filmed in my home town, San Clemente, California. The director used to go to my highschool, and has had an idea for making a movie there ever since.
Word came to our digital media teacher that there was an independent film being made, and luckily, the students were able to volunteer as extras, myself being one of them. Shooting took place in various locations around the city, but they have finished and are now in the process of editing.
The stars in the movie include:
Joseph Gordon Levitt (3rd Rock from the Sun, 10 things i Hate about You)
Edward Furlong (Terminator 2, Pecker, Detroit Rock City) was supposed to be involved, but cancelled
Some girl from this show "Everwood"
The original actor who played Shaft
and various others...
I was involved with the following:
intern for the cameramen, grips, and extra's coordinator
extra as a student in various locations: hallways, lockers, the library
i was a gangmember dressed in all black, we were called The Pins
i was also a masquerade party goer, that was an all night shoot at a HUGE house; my friends and i had alot of fun that night, haha
the movie is called "Brick" and from viewing the trailer, one might gather it is about a brick of herion (shhhh, dont tell the school administration!)
apparently, the school board was given a "cleaned up" copy of the script, that really had nothing to do with the original story. Unfortunately, I was never given a copy of the script, perhaps because I was a student and i might have told the administration, but from asking around I gathered this:
the main character, Brendan, is an outcast, loner type. His exgirlfriend gets involved with some bad people (im guessing one of the gangs) and somehow a brick of heroin is tied to everything. He has to find out what he can to solve the mystery, and it gets exciting and dramatic.
Now, when they told me the genre was, teen mystery, i thought to myself, it must be another lame, every-teeny-girl-sees-it movie; but, it actually follows an interesting, more "controversial" and dark tale that any school would allow to be involved with. I hope no one gets sued
If you have any further questions, just let me know
i will post any new info later (i.e. release dates, music info, etc.)
