We had a great time working out blocking and camera movements with the actors, Kelley Faulkner and Erik Batoog, at our two main locations in San Francisco: China Beach and a downtown parking garage. Bring on the shoot!
We are thrilled to have actors Erik Batoog and Kelley Faulkner as the romantic leads for the next Shadow Angel Films project, a short film called FOUND. We were entertained and impressed with their auditions and had a great rehearsal with them yesterday, so we know you’re going to love watching them too!
FOUND, Kelley Faulkner and Erik Batoog.
We’re pleased to introduce the fine actors of the next Shadow Angel Films short film, ROAD RAGE! Kimberly Reed as Lauren. Khary Moye as Nate. JT Blythe as George. After a recent rehearsal where they had us laughing with their keen improv skills, we’re more confident than ever that you’re going to love watching them!
How did our main characters meet and fall in love?
We asked the actors to answer this question in a rehearsal that we ran as an improv exercise one night. Watch the highlights of that night here.
We are revved up and ready to shoot on Sunday! We have just 8 more days to make our target pledge goal. Please ask your network to support an indie project for as little as $5 or $10, get cool rewards, and our enthusiastic thanks! Learn more here.
For previous auditions, we asked actors to perform part of the script. This time, because ON IT is a series of missed phone calls and the actors would be working without each other for many scenes, we ran auditions as improv exercises to find the most quick-thinking and entertaining actors.
And we found them! Now we want to share the parts of their auditions that won us over. We are pleased to present the ON IT actors, Tom Lazur and Aliza Rupert!

Presenting Duke Lee, Larry Kitagawa, and Suilma Rodriguez! Three incredibly talented actors who will star in OMAKASE. We met for improv exercises and rehearsals, discovering new things about ourselves and the characters. These actors are AWESOME and committed to their roles. You are gonna love watching them!
Suisha House in Redwood City graciously agreed to be our sushi restaurant location! And, we found a wonderful location for a dramatic rooftop scene at night. We’ve booked some wonderful talent with rehearsals starting soon. A good day to be a filmmaker!
In a very disappointing and unexpected turn of events, O-Toro Sushi notified us they needed to pull out of the agreement to be the main location. So, it’s back into the location scouting fray! We are making our lists, and checking them twice. Today we went to 10 more locations and we’ll keep at it until we find the right one!
After a long scouting trek to over 20 sushi restaurants, we found the main location: O-Toro Sushi at 205 Oak Street in San Francisco!
Jimmy, the owner, is very enthusiastic about having us there and we love the elevated sushi bar and the elegant, simple decor. As you can see, the sushi is exceptionally beautiful. And, we have eaten there twice now, and the food tasted just as good as it looks! We urge you to visit there and see for yourself. Tell Jimmy you’re there to check out the next film location for Shadow Angel Films!
Yummy seared hamachi belly nigiri.
