CC2K Co-founder Robert J. Peterson shot the book trailer for his sci-fi novel The Odds last night. Here’s his report:

We shot the book trailer for The Odds last night at my friend Dennis Mao’s incredible Japanese grill Robata-Ya on Sawtelle in Los Angeles. I had lunch there while scouting the space, and I can’t wait to go back. Thanks to Dennis for the space!

We shot the trailer on a Red camera. I don’t know much about this stuff, but it’s one of the most amazing rigs I’ve ever seen. Huge, enormous thanks go out to Casey Green, who just completed a full run on the team for NBC’s CHUCK, for providing the camera, as well as for his expert camera-work and assistant direction. He was full of great ideas for the shoot.

My friend Joel Douek, a vastly talented composer, has offered to mix and score the trailer, as well.

The cast includes my lovely, amazing girlfriend Lauren Rock as Oksana, as well as:

Eldridge: Bryant Dillon of Fanboy Comics, who stepped into the lead role shortly before the shoot.

Boris Hagan: Vito Lapiccola of Film Ronin Media.

Marko Marinus: Leonardo Canneto

Cici: Molly Hale

Shanta Feruccio: Meghan Stewart

Daniel Gannix: Jason Fischer

Jeb Goldmist: Mike Tarzian, who also donated both his motorcycle and his bike jacket for the shoot.

Quillig: NiNo Alicea.

Pell Yannick: Jorge Andretti

Constable Tola: Hilary Vreeland

Huge thanks to everyone involved for helping to make this happen! I can’t wait to see the finished product!
