My job: to cast and direct 160+ background actors, in 10+ locations, including a nightclub scene with 50+ partygoers, and a rally scene involving 80+ parents & their very excitable kids.
Also took on some responsibilities in the areas of logistics, transport, food, wardrobe, propmaking, and art direction. Indie film is fun that way!
