After several discussions with Jesse Shamata about what the show was and what it wasn’t it was great to finally start filming. It was nice to be able to leave cables, cameras and lights in the frame because the kids filming their “show” justified the gear – which also acted as production design elements.
“In My Parents Garage” is the working title but I believe that finding a name will be part of the “hype” around the Pilot.
