ABC ‘General Hospital’ (GH) spoilers finds that star Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) is not someone who can just sit home and do absolutely nothing, especially during the middle of a global pandemic. While in quarantine, Finola made the best of her time by filming and starring in a new thriller – and all from her iPhone, too. Here’s what she has to say.
Speaking to Soap Opera Digest in a new interview, Finola said that along with some of her filmmaking friends, they came up with the idea to film Enter Exit, a new series completely filmed using an iPhone. She said, “ It was all done on Zoom, and everything just clicked and we were off and running.
ABC ‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Finola Hughes Opens Up About New Movie
We used Zoom as our communication base. Initially, we were using Zoom as a way to record, as well, but that didn’t pan out the way that we wanted. It just really started to move from there. We wanted to make [the episodes] very short, because we know people’s attention spans are quite light, so we came up with two-to-three-minute scenarios.
[The concept] was born out of a New Yorker article that I was fascinated with. That was something I threw in [Boren’s] ear and he ran with that, and we just kind of dealt with this idea of an agent who’s become a hippie, she lives on a farm now and wants nothing to do with the business, but something happens to drag her back into the game.”
While the entire world was waiting and watching the coronavirus during the mandated lockdown back in March, April, and May, Finola and her team worked on their project, which certainly did take a lot of work. She said, “We shot 11 episodes and initially, it took us a long time, because we were dealing with a lot of technical issues.
But then we started to be able to shoot them in a couple of hours, and then they go to the editor and he puts them together for us. And then after that, they go to this musician friend of mine, who did a brilliant job [scoring the show].”
Now, as far as the finished product, Finola adds, “It turned out so much better than I could have imagined! We shot it on iPhones with no lenses, we don’t have great sound, and I haven’t done what I want to do with the camerawork yet; I think the only person that [mastered] the camera is Brooklyn, because she is of that generation and she just knows how to use her damn iPhone.”
