Ivaylo Getov, director of the movie POSE, was born in Bulgaria raised in Los Angeles, and is now living in New York City. He and his crew of 12 shot the movie at 3 locations: Pinecrest, Leo Carrillo State Beach, and New York City. The Pinecrest shoot involved hauling major set pieces & props, cameras, dollys, tracks and food and water up the steep hill to Timo Elliott's rustic site. Pinecrest Park managers Richard and Sydney were thanked in the movie credits for their all their help. Jayne Kennedy gave her permission for the film crew to use her trailer as a production office for the film, and they did.
The film was submitted to the SECRECT INTERNATIONAL OUTDOOR ARTS & FILM FESTIVAL (which is sometimes hosted at Pinecrest) and is being reviewed for possible inclusion in the festival, held June 11+12. Find out more about this film at the links on the bottom of this page.
THE PART OF THE PLOT THAT TAKES PLACE AT PINECREST:A mysterious man named Nicola wakes up in a surreal wall-less cabin in the wilderness and knows nothing except that he must start walking. We return to his story at various points in Laylee’s narrative, picking up on him calmly trekking miles through the anonymous wilderness. Gradually he begins to question his drive to keep moving, but cannot think of any alternative. Only when he comes to the apparent end of his journey, seemingly walking to his own demise, does he realize that he could have taken control at any moment and turned back, but even at the final threshold he continues forward, disappearing forever.
