I received a phone call from Carol Cuddy, a production manager here in NY.
first asked if I was available in the coming months and was kinda vague about the project.
Then when she
proceeded to tell me who the project was for I'm sure there was an audible pause on the phone as I tried to contain myself.
was coming to NY to shoot his
first English speaking film starring Norah Jones, which at the time I thought was an interesting and surprising choice.
Many production designers and art directors in NY were contacted.
After I told her
I was available and interested, she
asked that I submit some concept boards based on the premise for the script.
There was no script at the time, we were told that it's about a woman's journey across the country and the people she
encounters along the way, she
starts in New York, may go to Detroit, Memphis, Nevada and may end-up in California?
