Talk about intensity and stress. We didn’t have the location for the first scene we were shooting on Saturday July 26th up until 10 minutes before our scheduled call time.
That’s when Executive Producer Richard Kern stepped in again to rescue our production.
Rick Kern has done this over and over again in different ways that proves he has easily earned the Executive Producer title attached to his name.
Rick’s brother John played a part in getting us permission to shoot at Frankies East Side Gourmet Italian Restaurant, 313 Main Street, Farmingdale, NY (516) 756-2753.
Owner Ara and Chef Danny completely opened their arms to let us in their restaurant and gave us pretty much carte blanche to do the “Hallway Scene” needed to be done. I can’t thank them enough and the Kern brothers for coming through when we REALLY needed the help.
Later after finally filming a car scene with Almog Pail as “Faith Daniels” that had eluded us the first two weekends, Bertucci’s (881 Walt Whitman Rd, Melville, NY 11747 - (631) 427-9700) supplied us with a massive amount of food for dinner; 10-12 pizzas (of mixed variety), pasta with chicken & broccoli, another delicious chicken entree, salads and their legendary dinner rolls, all of which were devoured by our hard-working cast & crew. I have to thank Corey Grossman, the General Manager from Melville Bertucci’s for brilliantly engineering the feast. You made a lot of people happy with your establishment’s food and hospitality.
Again this production was blessed by people helping us out when we really needed it. Can’t thank everyone enough for doing so.
