On Saturday we shot some very short takes with Jaxson Mitchell who is playing Ian Tesh as a child, and Spencer Fox, who played the barber. I was excited to work with both of the actors.
We had set everything up to shoot at the Man-Mur Barber shop in Raleigh, but at the last minute, we were unable to shoot. Thanks to Lisa Laurene for finding us another barber shop that would allow us to film there on the fly!

On Sunday I had the privilege to work with Cranston Johnson who played the criminal Darren Corpening. The dynamic between Charles B. Allen (Ian Tesh) and Cranston proved to be thrilling and intense- perfect for this scene. Check out the style of this intense scene below!
