The Good Time Girls film is a project my good friend Dan Hammill is directing. It is a documentary about two women, Sara and Marissa, and their “adventures in history, business and life.” But what it is really about is the women’s hilarious, yet intelligent, take on the tawdry history of the seaport city of Bellingham, Washington. All the while dressed in period piece corsets, bustles, and bits of clothing I’m not even remotely familiar with. Sin and Gin, indeed!
I’m working as a guest filmmaker shooting b-roll for the Director of Photography Andy Simpson. Take a look at a couple behind the scenes shots and keep an eye out for the film next year… and if you are in Bellingham, take a tour with the Girls, it’s a blast.
