Abel Ferrara's 4:44 - Production Meeting Day 2
In the beginning of the hour and a half production meeting for 4:44 (we cut it down to half an hour to focus on the highlights), all crew members go around the room and introduce themselves. The 4:44 team go through the entire script, from Act 1 to the Finale under the direction and supervision of director, Abel Ferrara. Some highlights include, the lovemaking scene between Cisco (Willem Dafoe) and Skye (Shanyn Leigh), Al Gore's appearance on the Charlie Rose show, and planning the Skype call between the Chinese delivery boy and his family. Ferrara stresses the fact that everything in this film is from the perspective of the two main characters.
