A note about Nathan’s homophobic experience
Nathan’s experience with a client comes directly from my own life. I was filming at a client’s office for a full day shoot, during our lunch break someone told a story very similar to the one Nathan hears. There were about half a dozen people in the room, and everyone was laughing except me and my friend. We didn’t know what to do. I should have called him on it. Yet, he’s my client. I need to continue working with this guy. What a terrible excuse to not say anything. I remember looking across the table at my buddy, both of us uncomfortable. I’m still ashamed that I didn’t say anything.
Almost immediately after it happened, the idea struck me that I must include this experience in a scene of Out With Dad.
I’m sorry to anyone I may have offended with this scene, though I’m sure everyone understands why it needed to be told.

The music of “Out with Doubts”
This is our first episode of season two without any score. I always knew it was destined for songs for its soundtrack, it says so in the script!
I was having troubles finding the right music. I discovered these fantastic ladies through fellow filmmaker Gavin Michael Booth. He’s directed many music videos over the years, and so he knows many indie bands and musicians. I described the scenes to him and he sent me some suggestions!
It Was Real
The first track Gavin sent me was Livi’s “It Was Real”. I downloaded it while I was in transit. Even without the scenes in front of me, I knew it was perfect. Be sure to watch the music video Gavin directed for this song, feature Kate & Lindsey in their roles.

For Rose’s jogging scene, I always knew I wanted up-beat and happy sounding music. It had to be something the juxtaposes Rose’s uncomfortable conversation with Britany and Mackenzie. Gavin sent me a few tracks again – this one jumped right out at me. What I didn’t expect is that the song would work well for the preceding scene as well! Despite sounding happy and upbeat, it’s about white lies, which is so appropriate given how Rose is still hiding who she is.
