Backyard filmmaking

Postby meckels » Wed, 09 Mar 2011 3:04 pm

Hello,

I am a student filmmaker in search of a backyard for a scene in an upcoming student film. If anyone has a backyard they'd like to offer I would be very grateful.

Something more than just a little patch of grass. I'm an NYU Tisch Asia film student by the way.
