The lovely gentleman above won his role as part of a charity auction in which a walk-on role was donated as one of the prizes. Another of the many stories behind the story of "City Island".

    My department has brought this blog post to my attention relative to the image that purports to show The Sound Department on the move. While the good folks pictured (boom operator Kelly Neese and sound utility Desiree Ortiz) did indeed play important roles in capturing the sound for "City Island," I must go on record to say that the main, hardworking crew for Raymond's picture consisted of the Vinces Camuto, Vince and Vince, father and son sound and video team.

    Lovely photograph, by the way.
