It’s hard to give a synopsis of this film without giving it away, but basically the main character Sarah gets a lot more than she bargains for when she moves to Los Angeles.
1BR was at one point the most watched film on Netflix North America! This was great for me to hear because I know just how much sweat and tears went into making this film from everyone involved. David Bolen shoots with a very contrasty shooting LUT that mimics a Kodak stock and so a lot of the work was smoothing things out. SPOLER ALERT: There’s a room that a lot of the film takes place in that needed to be white, antiseptic and that was a huge challenge because some of it was shot on a pickup stage and some on location. The further it gets along in the film the sicklier and green it gets. I love that, being able to make a “color map.” What a great project.
