Select film students taped behind-the-scenes footage including interviews with the actors in the Sundance Institute’s film “Tangerine” April 1. The footage was filmed in one 10-hour day by Max Cho ’15, Dora Palmer ’15 and Henry Quilici ’15. The film is about transgender prostitutes and will premiere in theaters this year. It was first shown at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
Jeremy Gordon, supervising sound editor for the film, asked Visual Arts Department Head Cheri Gaulke to select students to shoot the behind-the-scenes segment to go along with the film.
Since the film has already been produced, the students filmed interviews with the actors and crew. The director of the film Sean Baker looked to the students to be the camera directors, Palmer said.
“We had a lot of say in how everything got shot,” Palmer said. “We were working with professionals who gave us a lot of experience.”
