Why did you decide to submit to FirstGlance?
I heard great things about it and decided that it would be a great idea to submit.
Will someone from your team be attending FirstGlance?
Yes, Christi Catalpa Executive Producer and me (Jaime Valdueza, director) will be there.
What is something you feel is important for our readers to know about your film?
That I was lucky enough to get the great cast that I had with Beau Knapp, Maika Monroe, Micah Hauptman and Meredith Monroe, and that it was a very fast shoot only three days for a 15 pages script so having people who were talented really helped to finish on time.
What should viewers expect from your film?
It’s a romantic thriller and a little dark so if you are in the mood for that come and see it.
Do you have any production stories our readers might enjoy?
Our crew got lost trying to arrive to the location in Palmdale even though we all had GPS but those things are not accurate in the desert. We had to send someone physically to the location and send a pin to everyone in order to find the place.
What are you looking forward to most at FirstGlance?
I’m looking to promote the film and to see people’s reactions. That’s what’s priceless about a film festival, to have the opportunity of hearing what people think of your film first hand.
