Juleisy & Karla (2018)
So last year I filmed a sequence of footage for a documentary I'm creating titled Mondo Miami. This sequence was following around two drag queens as they prepared for their big monthly underground queer party. I shot over 10 hours of footage with my army of Flip cameras.
They both also wore wireless lavaliere microphones.
I basically covered the weekend shoot like a super low-budget "toy" reality show. I just filmed them the entire time — cinéma vérité style — super fly on the wall. It was easy to capture a wealth of amazing footage because the two of them are so charismatic on their own, and together truly are a dynamic duo... lol.
Anyway — The movie's complete. It's probably my best work yet. It's like a bonbon, like soda pop. 15 minutes of psychedelic goodness. Will be released mid-September 2018.
In the meantime, here's some screenshots:
