I had the privilege last year to work with Richard Linklater on the final year of filming of his 12 Year Project which is now known simply as “Boyhood”. He started shooting the film in 2002 and assembled the same cast every year for a week of filming for 12 years which followed the same actor as he grew through adolescence. I took this photo right after we completed the last shot for the film in west Texas last October. It was amazing to present in that moment and see the emotion on everyone’s faces who had worked on the project for the last 12 years. I got to see an early sneak peek of the film at the cast & crew screening in Austin this week and I can’t wait for the world to see what Richard Linklater has been cooking up for the last 12 years. It’s truly an epic and deeply moving portrait of adolescence and life itself.
