Jose Sarria Documentary | Behind the Scenes

Jose Sarria Documentary | Behind the Scenes 
by Mario J Novoa

In late June 2015, Director Dante Alencastre, my partner William Smith and went to San Francisco to shoot interviews for the Jose Sarria documentary feature, "Nelly Queen". We were a small crew compared to most productions, but we were ready to get rolling on the documentary that has been in pre-production for 2 years. 
As producer and editor on the film, I had to come up with a production plan with Executive Producer/Writer Joe Castel on finding a way to maximize our budget and move forward with production. Here are some photo stills of our shooting day with Bob Dockendorf in San Francisco.
