Sean on the set
SEAN FARRELL (Class of '07)
"It was the final day of shooting on the film Munich and we were
deep in the heart of Brooklyn. I was talking with a crewmember when my
name was suddenly called over the walkie. 'Report to camera immediately'.
What was going on I thought? Did I do something horrifically wrong? Had
subpar catering taken out the directing chain-of-command and left me in charge?
I took a deep breath and strode over to the camera. 'Yes. I am here,' I announced.
'Whatever I did or whatever you need, I'm ready.'. ... Silence. A camera assistant
pushed past me with a stack of film. 'I think the script supervisor wants to see
you,' he said. 'Ah yes. A script question. Granted no one in New York had been
allowed to read Tony Kushner's script, so I would have to improvise. As the script
supervisor approached me, I got the feeling she wasn't about to ask my
advice on the script. I had no idea what this was about. I must have done something
wrong. 'Sean,' she said. 'You're the trainee, right?' 'Yes,' I replied. 'Nice. I can't
do this all the time, but I think it's a good thing for trainees to experience.
Steven ... There's someone I'd like you to meet.' And just like that I found myself
talking with Steven Speilberg about the film and how I was enjoying the program. It
was a good day."
In addition to "Munich", Sean worked on "Law & Order Conviction",
"World Trade Center", "The Brave One", and "Dan in Real Life".
