We just wrapped our Austin shoot onLoves Her Gun. The gang is now en route to NYC in a Winnebago that looks like this:
Our three week shoot in Austin has been awesome. We had so many wonderful cast and crew helping to make this movie something special. The footage looks great and we had some amazing talent in front of the camera. Our lead actress, Trieste Kelly Dunn, has starred in the IFC filmCold Weather, the indie hit Vacation!, and starred on the law drama Canterbury’s Law. Here is a picture of Trieste getting bruised by our make-up artist Liz Rische.

Our lead actor, Francisco Barreiro, happens to be one of the hottest talents coming out of Mexico City and we are so lucky to be able to work with him. His last movie, We Are What We Are, a film about a cannibalistic family living in LA, premiered in Cannes and Fantastic Fest last year!
Our film also stars the absolutely adorable Austin-based actress Ashley Spillers and NYC writer/director/actor Geoff Lerer (who also was our butt-kicking 1st AD)
I co-wrote Loves Her Gun with my sweetie pie, Geoff Marslett. This badass guy below:

Here are the two of us in San Marcos getting underwater footage for the film.
Loves Her Gun has definitely had it’s challenges but nothing abnormal for an indie film shoot. In fact, the shoot was pretty seamless. Whether you’re shooting a $100 million studio flick or a $20,000 indie flick, movie production is exhausting, stressful, but hugely rewarding. The cast and crew become a family and we’re so excited to see how the movie turns out. Loves Her Gun is about female empowerment and we had several amazing women working behind the camera. Below are some pics from the set. You can see more on our Tumblr page.

I would be just pickled if your film found its way to Omaha… and I am super excited for you and your sweetie… Hollywood is due for a new 'it' couple, and if nothing else, the indie circuit for sure..!
Great work. Having done a short, ten minute film a few years ago and knowing the stress that only THAT much caused, I'm proud that you made it all the way through. Good luck!!
@Mark- I'd love to go to Omaha sometime. Have lots of friends down here from there. Sounds like an interesting city!
@Tennyson- Ha. Thanks! Luckily I could excuse myself when I needed to work on my other work. It's really the cast and crew that deserve all the accolades!
Congrats on completing the film! As someone who works on the big budget films for a living I envy people who actually go out their and make their own films. I can't wait to see clips/the final product. Good luck on your journey up north.
Amazing!!! Looks like a great cast and crew and an exciting project! And that Winnebago is legit. Love it! I need to stay tuned for the finished product. ^_^ Good luck!
Thanks for the share!
