Director’s Notes

Bite Size is the epitome of an independent film. The script was written around locations the crew would be able to secure including the main location of the hot tub, the same hot tub that inspired the story for Bite Size.

The film was primarily funded out-of-pocket by the director, and also with the magnanimous help of many friends and a single fundraiser. An local NW cast and crew worked for the sheer joy of filmmaking, a few pizzas, Vitamin Water and Jones Soda (many thanks to the two latter companies’ generous contributions to the project). Some costumes were donated by Champion’s while most of the wardrobe was provided by the actors themselves.

Using a DVX 100 camera, a few shop lights and a homemade soft box the cast and crew worked late hours to get the necessary night scenes completed, much to the chagrin of the surrounding homeowners. With the help of the Digital Media school of the University of Washington the crew was able to film the shark point of view shots with an underwater camera case.
