This made for TV movie was shot in Atlanta on a tight schedule in only two weeks. For a 90 page script that’s almost 10 pages a day which is a grueling pace. Is there a psychological difference when Atkins shoots in different cities such as Atlanta, New York, Los Angeles or elsewhere because all cities do have different vibes which can affect the actors? She responds, “No one has ever asked me that before. I feel differently when I’m in those places so I imagine that it kind of calibrates in some way as how you carry yourself throughout the city and the space. The people of the city are different as is the energy and vibe. I’m from New York (Brooklyn) and even though I’ve lived in California for a long time I still don’t feel like I move or navigate through the world like a Californian and my husband says that all the time. He’ll ask why are you walking so fast?”
