Pre-production for the comedic short, Got This!, has officially begun!

The production staff met for the first time this past Sunday. The group members traveled from three different states and included Saturday Afternoon veterans and some new faces as well. The discussion topics ranged from the tone and style of the film to each person’s goals for the production. Without a doubt, everyone is excited for this collaboration.

The crew currently includes:

  • Susan Barry – Co-writer, Director
  • Laurie Norton – Assistant Director
  • John M. White – Director of Photography
  • Maya Shumar – Production Designer
  • Ethan Cadoff – Co-writer, Co-producer
  • Jennifer Frankhouser – 2nd Assistant Director, Choreographer
  • Nichole L. Knight – Blogmaster, Social Media Coordinator

Take a look at some photos from the afternoon.
