IRIS VON ARNIM
PALM SPRINGS

FRANK SINATRA’S TWIN PALM ESTATE IN PALM SPRINGS WAS THE LOCATION FOR THE SHOOTING OF MY DEAR FRIEND IRIS VON ARNIM. TWO GIGANTIC PALM TREES (HENCE THE NAME), A POOL IN THE SHAPE OF A CONCERT PIANO, A TINY CABIN, AND THIS HUGE SURREAL INCREDIBLE STEREO SYSTEM THAT LOOKED LIKE A FUCKIN‘ NUCLEAR REACTOR. I KNEW THIS PROJECT WILL TURN OUT GREAT – WHICH IT DID. WE HAD JUST THREE SHOOTING DAYS. ONE WAS WASTED ON THE MEN COLLECTION. THE MODEL WAS JUST REALLY BAD. A CHEAP BRAD PITT KNOCK OFF TALKING SKATE BOARD SKILLS ALL DAY LONG. ANYWAY THE OTHER TWO DAYS WERE JUST PERFECT HARD WORK.
