BONUS: Here's the artsy black-and-white promotional still required by Sundance for submission. I have no idea why they need it, but here it is. Please email to have a glossy print mailed to you, if you simply must have one.

For purposes of continuity, a Polaroid camera is indispensable on a film set, even in the age of digital photography (if only those damn little cameras could print!). Below is a collage of headshots taken by Lauren Snyder and Matt Heffernan (and possibly others) for hair, makeup, and costuming continuity. The whole cast is represented, but unfortunately only the full-body shots could be found for Kelly and Carmen.
