About Preparing for the "Painting" Scene
In this behind the scenes video from Abel Ferrara's 4:44, we watch the crew prepare for the Painting Scene with actors Willem Dafoe & Shanyn Leigh. First we see the crew set up the correct lighting and then watch the make up artist do touch ups on Shanyn Leigh's makeup. When the scene is ready to be filmed, Abel Ferrara begins directing and discussing the first couple of shots.
4:44 is a new film by acclaimed director Abel Ferrara, starring Willem Dafoe and Shanyn Leigh. The film focuses on the relationship between Cisco (Dafoe), a successful actor, and his painter girlfriend, Skye (Leigh), as the world is coming perilously close to its final moments of existence.
