Trivia

During editing, the directors would think of inserts shots and close ups that would help boost the emotional impact of each scene. Since they owned the equipment and all of the actors lived nearby, they could often get the shots they wanted within a couple of hours. Cinematographer Mike Simpson would often ride his bike over, light the shot quickly and return home within a few minutes. See more »

LA screening at Arclight
8 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We saw Strings at the Arclight during the Hollywood Film Festival. We went away talking about the story lines all weekend. We were amazed at how you originally wanted to dislike certain actors. But as the plot went on you either loved them or hated them. The acting was impressive, especially compared to other indie films we have seen. We had a hard time viewing this as an indie movie. It is made of a much high quality then most. As far as the actors themselves, Elle LaMont is a site for sore eyes. We hope both she and Olivia Dragucevich (the child actor) are in other movies. We will start searching for them to see. The male actors were cast perfectly for their roles. Jack Lee, Billy Harvey, Karl Anderson, Chris Potter, and the others were extremely believable and should win many awards for their performances.

We hope this movie is turned into one that hits the major screen so others can talk all weekend about it too. Great movie!
