A few weeks ago I was contacted by Mill Cabinet, a local company in Bridgewater, Virginia, to shoot some promotional images for their new website, which is being designed by Estland Design. Unlike most cabinet shops, Mill Cabinet does almost everything by hand and their finished work is breathtaking. The level and skill that goes into each piece is incredible and I was fascinated to learn a little bit about the process while shooting these images. Enjoy!

    kelly - Josh,

    I love your videos!

    Love,
    Aunt Kelly

I am thrilled to share this post with you! In the Fall, we started a new concept called “Senior Fusion,” which is a unique blend of still and motion photography that provides a small glimpse into the life of a high school senior and their future ambitions. After the awesome time we had shooting and editing the last one, I was really excited that Whitney came to me for one. With all of her unique talents and awesome style, we were really able to capture her personality in this film. We hope you enjoy it!

    Victoria Shirley - Senior Fusion is by far the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. Wish I knew somebody who did this back in 2007 when I was a senior!!

    Josh Gooden - Thanks Victoria! I love doing them.

EXT. TALLIS HOUSE. GARDENS. DAY.

It’s no later than 10am, but the sun is already high and blazing down on the monumental facade of the Tallis house, recognizable from its miniature version seen earlier. Lying on one of the rolling lawns is CECILIA TALLIS, BRIONY’s sister, a beautiful, restless-looking girl of 23, who is making a desultory attempt to read a fat edition of Richardson’s Clarissa. She turns back a page to re-read something, then sighs, rolls on to her back and shuts her eyes against the sun.

EXT. TERRACE. DAY.

CECILIA crosses to the window. Outside, ROBBIE is standing rolling himself a cigarette. CECILIA goes over to a cherry-wood table, where there’s an early 18th-century Meissen vase. She drops the flowers untidily intoit and pulls out a crushed packet of cigarettes, which turns outto be empty. She glances back out of the window, picks up the vase, checks her reflection in the mirror and strides out towards the terrace.

EXT. TERRACE. DAY.

CECILIA is now wearing a green halter-neck evening gown and the jet necklace has been replaced with a rope of pearls. CECILIA fixes on a diamond hair-clip, contemplates her reflection for a moment, this time with satisfaction and enters the Terrace.

INT. STAIRCASE AND HALLWAY. NIGHT.

CECILIA

Briony, did you read this letter?

BRIONY

Yes, let’s, that’s a wonderful idea!

CECILIA

Briony…

BRIONY, now changed for dinner, crosses the landing and startsdown the last section of staircase leading to the hall. As shereaches the bottom step, she notices a diamond hair-clip lyingin front of the door to the library. She crosses to the hairclipand picks it up.

EXT. TALLIS HOUSE. NIGHT.

CECILIA, ignoring her mother, runs to ROBBIE. ROBBIE movestowards her, catching the CONSTABLE off guard for a second; she catches hold of ROBBIE’s lapel and whispers into his ear. The CONSTABLE arrives and disengages her hand, gently but firmly, then leads ROBBIE to the car and pushes him down into the back seat. CECILIA bursts into tears, as the door closes. The car begins to pull away from the house. Visible through the backindow, as he twists round to look over his shoulder, is the shocked, white face of ROBBIE.
