General
"On September 11th, 2005, a huge group of friends, actors, crew, and designers (mostly students from San Francisco State’s Theatre Department) gathered together in the Palace Hotel for a non-stop 21 hour shoot of over 30 scenes. Throughout the day, some actors would arrive to get into costume while others were leaving. We worked hard and fast. The other two thirds of the film were shot over the next six months in and around San Francisco. What we brought into existence was a film version of William Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens" [From the director’s MySpace entry - accessed 2/2009).
