CU Film Directing Exercise - Donnie Brasco

Ariel and I have been working with Edwin Ho, a first-year directer in the Film program for a good part of the semester.  He asked us back to do a directing exercise for him and we got together last week and shot an excerpt from the film Donnie Brasco.  The exercise was to take a scene from an established film and put his own twist on it.  This is what he came up with.

It's always really wonderful to work with Ariel; she's such a giving performer and a strong screen presence.  And Getting to work with Edwin repeatedly during the semester has really been a treat.

I hope you enjoy it.  Now I'm off to go close The Government Inspector with Ariel and the rest of the Class of 2014.  Cheers!
