EMERYVILLE, Calif. (KGO) — Inside a loft in Emeryville, a barebones crew is shooting the film Adam and Eve, directed by Brian Hooks, set for release next year.
If you just look through the camera, it almost feels like a time before COVID-19. Three people are sitting around a table, playing UNO, no social distancing, no masks. That’s because the premise isn’t pandemic related, the movie is a romantic drama set in San Francisco about an ex-marine who meets the woman of his dreams.
But make no mistake the making of the movie has COVID-19 written all over it.
“Everything needs to be sprayed and everything needs to be wiped down,” said Hooks, who also plays the lead role Adam, pointing to all the gear that now needs sanitation.
