    "Sandbars to Sanibel" Filming on Location

    As the film maker, my original vision for this film “Sandbars to Sanibel” was to be shot in sepia, with the intro and ending to be in color, similar to The Wizard of OZ. However, after shooting the first scene in the authentic wooden walled post office I could not bring myself to remove the deep and saturated tones of color from this film. The preserved interior of each historic building, one after the other, revealed a magical aura of dreamlike reds, yellows and browns. Add to that the time-era wardrobe and the intense commitment by each actor to participate at 100%; I was completely satisfied to have chosen to shoot this film 24 frames a second, a film-like look. This project has by far been my favorite edit scenario.

    SANIBEL ISLAND, FL (January 7, 2009) – As the holiday season came to a close and decorations were carefully stored, the six whimsical elves in front of Pfeifer Realty Group on Periwinkle Way were not packed away nameless. “I had no idea the elves would create such interest” said Pfeifer. Passers-by stopped to take photos and would call the office if the elves were not outside just to be sure they were alright. “We were asked so many elf questions that we decided to let the public help us name them.”
