    Is there any way for you to operate outside of the city limits? There are fewer restrictions if you go rural and I believe it is cheaper.

    Another thought on the re-set:

    We tell our actors to improvise within reason. We give them a way to do the scene but allow them to make changes to see what works best.

    The first half of your list is "maybe's", but for my sense of humor you were on a tear with the bottom half. Do you have something better than just "Tickets"?

    Thanks for the replys.

    I think you were right the first time, that the actor is leaning in from the back. Look at the shadows cast by the chains and the shirt. It appears that the prop is lit from above, casting the...
