(note see below the video for back ground and FYI too)

(note – fyi: the actors met that day, didn’t known each other before – there was only one walk through rehearsal of sorts early that afternoon – i as the cameraman had know idea what i was getting into and was shooting both moving and still cameras and shot over 600 images on my canon 7D at the same time too – had i seen the rehearsal i would have had more insights into shooting and framing the shot as it was i am glad i didn’t know more, actually i didn’t know anything other then that i love Abbey and was doing it as a friend and yet it took me a few times watching the videos to really get the depth of what unfolded and how amazing a performance all the the actors did too and also no-way could we have duplicated it or even close to it – and abbey did an amazing job and has her own film that she will edited but the silent film in black & white is my experiential experimental film – in filming and compiling it for abbey i realized the irony and juxtaposition of being crucified on wall street was a powerful metaphor that begged to be given birth too and lastly, fyi, when i was 19 i worked as a runner of the floor of New York Stock Exchange for six plus months too)
