    Hannah's Place

    I start shooting my new feature, HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS, in one week. For this movie, I had the idea to rent an apartment that all of us could live in together, and also have it serve as Hannah and her roommate, Rocco's, apartment in the film. The search for this apartment has been full of twists and turns, but I finally found a place that is going to be perfect. The landlord, Sylvia, is super cool, and the apartment is totally great.

    Greta Gerwig and Ry Russo-Young, who are acting in the film as Hannah and Rocco, arrive in Chicago on Sunday, July 16th. I talked to Kent Osborne today, who will be playing Matt, and he said he might roll into town Saturday. He's been on the road from Los Angeles for the past week, and he still has another week of traveling to go. He's taking his time getting across the country and seeing friends along the way. I believe he'll be in Austin, TX for the next few days if you want to find him. I can't wait for everyone to get here.

    Kris and I started moving things in today, and I'll continue to fill the place with stuff until we start shooting next Monday. We have to leave enough room for everyone to live here, but we also have to make it feel full enough to be the apartment of the characters in the film. One of the major perks of this place is a great backyard patio/garden area that we can hang out in this summer. There is a grill for cooking and lots of nice shade trees.

    As with my other films, KISSING ON THE MOUTH and LOL, this journal will be way for me to record my thoughts about the film and the process, and also a way for friends and such to keep up with the production.

    Please check back, as I will be updating here frequently now.
