scouting locations part 1

in january of 2009 i'll be shooting my first film on 16mm: the first year film at san francisco state university is the culminating work for your first year as an mfa candidate. on sunday i went out to various towns in the central valley of northern california to find locations for my short film, a narrative that captures a moment of isolation and then unification in rural, middle of nowhere california.

here are some polaroids from that adventure:

nicki, my fellow classmate and dear friend, poses against the neverending fields and blue sky.

what appears to be an old abandoned aqueduct. it stretched almost the entirety of hahn rd in arbuckle, ca.

an abandoned farm storage tank stands rusted amongst miles of dry land and power lines.
