Ghosts and Gravestones

Imagine...
* 100 lbs of dry ice
* being locked inside an ancient 17th century graveyard until midnight
* along with 11 actors dressed as if they were just raised from the dead

it was quite the experience.

My buddy Michael was contracted through trolley tours of Boston and he invited me along for the Ghosts and Gravestones assignment.

I was busy with dollies, lights, coffins and not burning my flip flop donned toes with dry ice, so I only got a few shots on the Trolley and at the burial ground before the sun went down.... but just wait till you see the REAL ones ;)

I loved this group! There is something magical about actors...something about the way they transform a story from simple words to a multi sensory experience. A few gave me a demo of their presentation and I was so intrigued.... I LOVE STORIES. If anyone ever want to go on the tour, let me know... They granted me and my guests free admission anytime I want ;)
