For 6 scorching weeks we labored away under the hot E. Washington sun. The result is a drama/comedy entitled Hello My Name Is Frank. This film stars Garrett M. Brown as Frank. The cast also includes Tess Harper, Brent Briscoe, Mary Kate Wiles, Wayne Duvall, Rachel DiPillo,Travis Caldwell and Hayley Kiyoko.
Director Dale Peterson works through a scene with Garrett M. Brown. Garrett is a consummate professional. He was the title actor and every day he showed up to set completely prepared. When Garrett is around there is always laughter and he knew everyone’s name on set after the first day.

This tractor plays an integral part in the film. I believe it was a 1950 John Deere and it had been restored to showroom quality. I’ve never seen a tractor look better.
And then we moved into nights.
And of course it began to rain. Here is a beautiful mount that my talented Key Grip Cory Reed built for the tractor.
We spent a week on this process trailer. It was challenging and hot work, but we got some great footage.
Here is a great shot of my 1st AC Melvina Rapozo. Amazingly talented and never needs a second take.
Day ex. The car on the left is the picture car for the shoot. This is one of the few times that I saw it with the hood down. Most of the time the hood was up with several guys crowded around trying to get it started again.
