Casting, Costumes, Cars, and More – Summer of ’67

VW Bus

Filmmaking is like a roller coaster ride at an amusement park. You begin by watching from a distance and wondering if you're brave enough to do it yourself. Then, once you work up your courage, you hop aboard, wait for others to join you, buckle up, then brace yourself as you climb to the heavens…

Now Casting – Summer of 67

After each movie I always say that's it. No more movies. And I mean it.  I honestly thought Providence was our last movie.
