How do you show LA without showing palm trees… We’ll probably see a few, but I want to tap into the sides of LA that aren’t over used, yet still iconic. How we’ll balance emerging subculture and put it up against those things will make this interesting, or for lack of a better word “subversive” toward the institutionalized vision everyone has for showing off LA. It’s the new things and the odd places we haven’t seen in a while I know I’d like to explore. But also have a few throwback locations, or forgotten landmarks that we go to. For example Elliott Gould’s house in “The Long Goodbye”, and how we might see the hills from a similar angle. Not from some overplayed mansion on Mulholland Dr. full of people who club in WeHo and only take Uber Black XL’s. In Japan we dug deep into one thing and found the best parts of it. It was a real world that existed and we made it more exciting in the way we allowed it to be visualized. That was insular, but this is a broad and community based piece so we’ll take a different approach. We want to see all the corners of the city and people like they’re their own as we pull our story through them all. Letting these seemingly exclusive places and faces make up a bigger portrait of LA that we’re all a part of. It’s cinematic and beautiful, but true to life.
