CITY ISLAND: DELETED CLIP OF EZRA AND CARRIE!
Lo. A previously forgotten, unposted but fully edited little scene between Ezra Miller and Carrie Baker Reynolds was just discovered among my copious download files. This scene didn't make it past the first assembly--not due to quality but simply because we streamlined the timeline of the story and this connecting moment no longer was needed to connect anything.
I appreciate a number of the comments asking for on-set stories and stills. The stories are, alas, few as the shoot was a pleasurable experience (and if it hadn't been I doubt I'd be posting "bad-mouth" tales of tribulations). Generally the stories I
have are specifically situational as to how scenes were achieved, what obstacles we faced, etc. But let me dig through the debris of my memories of this past summer and see what shards remain. The stills, however, are another matter. I simply can't post them for two reasons: the actors haven't approved them yet and the financing companies don't want them to wind up for sale via downloading. Believe it or not, there is money to be made off of good old fashioned photography while the bits of scenes that I post are really of no monetary value. And ultimately, whoever buys the film is also acquiring the images of the stills in connection with publicity for the film and wouldn't like it if they'd already been floating around the wireless universe.
Meanwhile, enjoy Denise's "Chocolate Death Cake".
