Over the last year I’ve had the pleasure of working with Susan Miller and Tina Cesa Ward twice on their award-winning webseries, Anyone But Me. Last month I flew to New York to produce the finale episode of the show (running over 20 minutes in length) with the core cast and a lot of the same crew who has been with the show from the beginning, four years ago.
The finale production was both exciting and sentimental. With half of the cast and myself arriving from Los Angeles it felt like a reunion. At the same time it was bittersweet. We all knew that after those three amazing days of shooting the last bit of the show would be in the can. Luckily, we were able to make the final scene of the finale the final scene we shot. I’m not going to lie, there were tears. But there wasn’t a better place to shed those tears than sunset at Battery Park, the place where the show began, down the street from the World Trade Center (now the Freedom Tower) and with a fantastic view of the Statue of Liberty.
So take a moment to check out the series (if you haven’t already) and then enjoy the final installment of the show that has changed lives around the world. Thank you, Tina and Susan, for allowing me to be a part of this show.
