It’s finally on my website — the complete Lost Boat shoot I’ve had in my head for years. The location scouting destroyed my little 35/2 lens, the pre-production drove me slightly insane, the props and rowboat filled my driveway, and then … it came together beautifully. The actors brought their characters to life, the crew made it a smooth day and the boat held five people without collapsing.
A few highlights:

Not the man you want guiding your boat.
Even the lowly oarsman gets his portrait taken.
The always-brilliant Milo Cawthorne.
Sailors just want to have fun.
