Last week, I helped my friend Desmond with a short film he wrote and directed. I didn’t do much — mostly set design and general assistant-type stuff — but I did manage to take some photos throughout the process. It was great fun, and the entire team was incredibly professional and talented. Click through to see shots from each day, and see here for even more photos of the process.

Day 1: Astoria Park and Des’ apartment
