The Making of School Portrait
Nick Scott was traveling in Italy when he had an idea about a school photographer having a bad day. Scott had worked with Jonathan Rhodes before and he seemed like a great fit for the part. Soon, Producer Micheal Berliner joined the production and together they found Shirley High School and Stuart from Stagecoach, who introduced them to a bunch of kids who were very excited about being involved.
The purpose of the film and a funny issue during production are best told in his words:
“The aim of the film was to tap into the nostalgia for peoples’ school photos: tie dye backgrounds, bright coloured uniforms and cheesy grins.
