Last Saturday my crew and I got together to shoot a teaser for Trailer Park Princess. I plan on releasing the teaser by the end of April. There are a lot of things that still need to be done to make the teaser pop and get people excited for the film.
I was assisted by an amazing group of people. Everyone pitched in every way that they could which is what you need to succeed on an indie film shoot. Big thank you to my lead actress Jillian Guerts for traveling from NYC to star in the teaser. Also need to say thank you to my amazing crew which includes Ron DiPrimio, Ryan Burnett, Sarah DiPrimio, Jackie Martine, Doug Cogit, and John Rattacassa. My additional cast for this day included Luis Cruz, Rocco Doran, JT Hubbard, and Chris Virunurm. They all did a great job and I can't thank them enough.
We filmed at Let's Party Painters in Corbin City, NJ. Shawna Mulford and Rocco Doran were kind enough to lend us a perfect space and basically gave us carte blanche to do what we needed to make the set come to life. It is so important to have people who believe in what you are trying to accomplish and are willing to donate their time and resources.
It was amazing to be on set again. It is the greatest feeling in the world to watch something you worked hard on come to life. My confidence grows each time I step on set. It's crazy to think I started directing when I was 13 years old and here it is 4 years later and I still learn something new every project.
Quick update on where we are budget wise. Since launching the store we have raised an additional $1257.00. That is amazing and I am so grateful to everyone who has purchased an item or donated. This movie is happening and I can't wait to reward your trust and belief in me by delivering a movie that you will be proud to say you made happen.

I have added some of my favorite BTS photos below. Thank you for reading my blog. Bye for now.
