Timecode
Filmfest 2006

Shot entirely in one day with hand-held digital video cameras in sequence, in real time with no editing, the plot - a black comedy thriller set against Los Angeles lifestyles- literally unfolded before the cameras as the actors each forged an improvised trajectory for their characters based on the central elements of an affair, a murder, and an ensuing Hollywood mystery. Four main characters are at the center of the plot: a motion picture executive and his wife, an aspiring actress in the midst of an affair, and a woman whose actions will alter all their fates. www.about.com "Time Code is at once a mordant satire of the hypocrisy and self-delusion of the film industry and an earnest declaration of faith in the medium itself." New York Times
