A bit about Harts Ridge in the making.


THE CAST

The open call for headshots brought in well over 200 entries from across the country. With the script calling for a full spectrum of actors of different genders, ethnicity and ages, very specific character profiles were posted on the film.org web site along with psychological profiles to help the actors prepare for their auditions.
After considering the hundreds of applicants for each role, candidates were contacted via email or phone and auditions were held in PA in November of 2007. Over 100 actors were auditioned for the 2 lead and 6 supporting lead roles. Callbacks were not an issue. We were working with-in a time frame regarding our main sound stage and had to start shooting the week after final casting decisions were made. After an intensive review period the selected actors were contacted, congratulated and the talented cast of Harts Ridge was formed.

THE CREW
The core crew was formed in about a one-two week time-frame. Ads were placed on film.org and backstage.com. Our DP - Kyle Matthew Waldbusser, 1st AD - Matthew Cohn, SFX Genius - Mike Harvey, and script supervisor Jennifer Westervelt, were all in from the moment go. The rest of the core crew worked on the film as their schedules permitted. We had several hair & make-up artists, sound crew and PA's. The filming was completed within 3 months, on location in Philadelphia Metro areaWorking with Kyle, Matt & blood Mike was a great experience. I only had to give Kyle an idea of what I wanted to see, via storyboards, verbally, or act it out, and he would just get it. Kyle always offered up alternative creative suggestions and made the shot happen. Matt - always there with something we needed even before we even screamed for it. He was one step ahead of everyone. Matt was often !st AD, Key Grip, Gaffer, PA, (all at the same time) and could do almost anything. Major Kudos to Kyle, Matt and Mike Harvey (blood mike) of tdefx.com, who I've known since the filming of "In Justice" directed by Alexander Ballas back in 2002. Mr. Harvey is man of many SFX skills, and having Mike work on this project was indeed, excellent.
