FILM ONE: ROWAN OVERTURE

THE STORM

It's 5am and the sun finally started peaking through the ominously dark clouds revealing a dramatic streak of fire.

We didn't think we were going to be able to get the shot.

The weekend we picked to shoot our first film 'Overture' happened to coincide with one of the worst recent flash floods that Joshua Tree had seen.

We witnessed cars driving through rivers of water and then beign washed down them. Helicopters were hovering over the streams that had become rivers at night, searchlights pulling people out.

Lives were lost that weekend. Our crew was going off of 4 hours of sleep. It honestly would have been easier to write the shot off and sleep in.
But we learned something that morning. Just when you think it's not worth it when all is being washed away, when the dark clouds aren't moving, keep going.
