September 2016

A woman’s visit to the library suddenly becomes an adventure through space and time when a book transports her into its world – and the worlds of other books.

Behind the scenes of Misread

Setting-up a shot
Using my iPad to take a test photo before filming.
My equipment for the 'desert' shoot
This is where I shot the Egyptian desert scene (Jockey’s Ridge on North Carolina’s Outer Banks). In the background are Roanoke Sound and Roanoke Island. Note the plastic bags: I put them on nearly everything to keep the sand out!
Getting ready to shoot a scene on the beach
Getting ready to shoot the Robinson Crusoe scene on the beach in Corolla, North Carolina.
Caught by the tide while filming on the beach
The tide was beginning to come in while I was shooting on the beach and a few overzealous waves got me while I was filming. It was late November and very cold! I’m sure I looked silly lying on the beach fully dressed, halfway in the frigid water, with a camera in my face. The last photo in the sequence turned out to be my favorite image out of everything I captured making Misread.
