Death Is No Bad Friend: Scouting Locations in Colfax

This past weekend, my cousin Buzz generously drove me around his backyard in Colfax, California (not far from Sacramento) in order to scout potential locations for my short screenplay Death Is No Bad Friend.

Death Is No Bad Friend is about Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde) in San Francisco and on Mount Saint Helena. So Buzz’s property would serve as the perfect place to film those mountain forest scenes!

Although it’s in its beginning stages, I’m hoping to fund this film through Indiegogo and work with a number of talented filmmakers I met at the Cannes Film Festival 2013 to bring Death Is No Bad Friend to life. More details to come!

I’m really not an outdoorsy person, so scouting locations like this was a bit crazy for me — especially being the passenger of an off-road vehicle bouncing up and down the mountainside like Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride. But it was definitely worth it!!!
