My third project, "Isolation Booth," is a real departure from the
first two movies. It took me four weekends to shoot and was produced on a budget of $3000. I collaborated with a costume designer and a group of make-up artists. We shot across a total of six locations, including the sand dunes off Province Town, Cape Cod that doubled for a post-apocalyptic wasteland. I also worked extensively in the art department for the project. One of the props I helped create was a giant metallic hood that had to be raised and lowered onto the lead actress (Danielle King) while she lay still on a table covered in a white sheet. We created the hood out of foam core and then spray painted it to look like rusted metal. One of the most difficult locations I had to find was a tunnel. I needed a practical location that I could light to create the appropriate atmosphere for the scene. I found my location in the basement of Canton High School. It actually was the equipment room for the baseball team with fish net covering the batting cages. The room was perfect. It was about one hundred feet long with a wall on one side and the batting cages opposite. We also got extremely lucky for there were electrical outlets all along the top of the batting cages and a bar at the top that was great to hang lights from. I was able to get really low angles and shoot through the batting cages. At the top of the wall there was room enough to place the camera to get interesting high angles. The space became my own studio to create the visually haunting look I was after.
