Okay, before anyone asks, "Spit" isn't referring to anything gross. It's actually the name of a short film that I'm helping out with, and the title refers to the card game of the same name. I'm told that the same game (or at least a very similar game) is referred to as Nert, Nerts, or Oh Heck (to put it mildly...). It was a lot of hard work, but it was a lot of fun--quite a few of my friends are on set, so it was fun to chat with people during the downtime. I've included a few pictures that I took as well (I really like my new camera lens!).


One of the guys on the camera crew. He was complaining about how there are very few pictures of him on set, so I told him I'd upload this to Facebook.

One of the actresses. At one point, there was a lengthy break where the majority of the cast and crew were confined to the basement during a production meeting, so I just started taking random pictures of people. The lighting was terrible down there though (most of the pictures came out green).

Also during the basement break. He's done some other student films, and if I'm not mistaken, BYU-TV did a brief special on him because he and his brother played Hyrum and Joseph in Nauvoo (but I could be wrong about that...)

The director. I only had a split second to take the picture before he yelled action, so I didn't even get a chance to set the exposure--and I actually like the way this picture turned out, because the background would have been completely blown out otherwise.

And I've also been working hard on a video for a BYUSA campaign, which I will upload as soon as I get permission to do so. They have some very strict policies about campaigning, and if I upload the video too soon, the candidates could get hit with an infraction. For now, let's just say "light graffiti..."

It's cool to see others that know about Nerts. You should definitely check out , the site for the National Nertz Association. There is a bunch of interesting Nertz information, videos, and photos there AND you can play Nertz on-line for free. I recommend it to all Nertz players! So cool. =)
