Bill describes what he wants from the shot

Bill Suchy and I first met when he was a film major at the University of Florida and I was  a music major. A mutual friend introduced us during the shooting of Prelude, a student film project about a pianist who gets murdered.  I still remember lying on asphalt in a parking lot across from the music building gasping my last breaths as  red food coloring and corn syrup erupted from my chest, soaking my clothes.   I met Bill’s wife, Joyce, years later before we were married to our current husbands. Joyce and I stayed up many a night hanging out, puzzling over our relationships with our “boyfriends.”

 

I was thrilled to get a chance to visit with them both again. We reminisced over a chinese lunch and again later that day at Bill and Joyce’s home in Orlando after the shoot.
