Candid behind the scenes footage shot during the production of Spaces and Reservations in August of 2012. Featured in this video are stars Zach White and Taylor Hastings, as well as cinematographer Jeremy Cox, assistant director Daniel Jeffery, camera assistant Sara Blake, sound recordists Calvin D’Silva and Will Ross, grips Marc-Olivier Harvey and Doralynn Mui.
I think this video is a great example of just how on the same page Taylor Hastings and I were during the shooting. My direction sounds like total gibberish now, but she seems to get it at the time. And the scene we’re shooting here turned out totally great.
As he did in Choch, Zach White gives a performance that truly soars despite the relative quiet of his more introspective character this time around. White at times gives off a Michael Cera vibe here (I swear that’s a compliment), a vibe that sort of says “I’m essentially a good guy even when I’m a completely fucked up guy.” While these introspective, self-exploratory kinds of characters can be maddeningly self-indulgent, White magnificently makes us absolutely adore this guy even amidst the multiple layers of his humanity that unfold here.
