My friends and I shot this film back in 2009 at Salem Pond in Utah. It’s an adaptation of a play written by Teresa. My friend Randall McNair actually raised two ducks and built a fantastic puppet for the film. While the main edit has been done for years, rendering the project in HD turned into a nightmare of technical difficulties (I don’t even want to estimate the hours of minutia I put into it), and what with real life and all, Teresa and I have had three children before I finally got around to wrapping up this project. But I’m glad I did, because this is a fantastic little piece with a great message. And now I proudly present to you … drum roll … Removed – or the Adventures of Modern Transcendentalist.
As we haven’t had a chance to view this in front of a live audience yet, I’d love some feedback. After another edit, I hope to submit this to a festival.
