May 16th, 2011: Filming of the Teaser

The SHOESHINE BOY teaser was filmed over a period of two weeks in May at various locations around Cabarete. Our young actor Roberto Pereyra needed very little instruction as he naturally took on the role of young JMR after getting a crash course in shoe shining from the real pro Pablo.

We would like to thank the various businesses in the Paseo de Don Chiche alleyway in Cabarete for accommodating our needs during the filming days, as we had to significantly limit walking traffic during certain times. Also a huge thanks to the many extras who so patiently followed the Director’s instructions despite the heat and late hours.

We’re still putting a little shine on the teaser, but expect we’ll be releasing it on our website in the very near future.
