This afternoon, after finishing up a little homework for Monday, Dennis and I went to the theater. It wasn’t Broadway, by any means, but it was a pretty big event regardless. We saw the first film Dennis worked on, “Righteous Kill.” And barring all of the bad acting and the fact that the last five minutes of the film were torture for me to sit through because of my full bladder, it was one of the most exciting things I’ve done in a while. Simply to see his name in the credits next to Key Locations Assistant (which, according to Dennis, “doesn’t really mean anything”) was thrilling. There it was! His name! On a real film!
The film was supposed to take place in New York, but most of the locations were actually in Bridgeport, Stamford, and New Haven, Connecticut.
In one of the shots, you can see a photograph of a place in New Zealand that Dennis took hanging on a wall as part of a set, and then in an office shot, you can see Dennis’ mug shot on a wanted poster! It was all very exciting.
So go out and watch the film (or wait for it on DVD and spend much, much less) and know that my wonderful boyfriend had a hand (and a face and a photo) in the making of it.
