Wes on the RED EYE set

Red-Eye shoot in Florida

Sunny Miami, right? Wrong. This is the kind of weather we had half the days we shot in Miami. I'd gone out for a rare walk this particular afternoon, and ended up taking shelter under an awning as the skies opened up. Not that there's anything wrong with rain, unless you're in the middle of [...]
