"1st Session," written and directed by Alain Cloarec, is a feature comedy about the first day at work of a New York City psychotherapist.  It should be a breeze, "I mean, how hard can it be, I'm just going to sit here and listen to people complain," says Dr. Alan.  He's going to help people and make a lot of money at the same time, and if they complain of his fee, he'll just waive the portion that the insurance doesn't cover.  Unfortunately, inauspicious beginnings arise.  Nine first-time patients on his first day at work.  Perhaps he overbooked.  Too bad Dr. Alan didn't go to Law School after all.  Shot in 3 days with a 3-person crew using 3 digital cameras running simultaneously, 1st Session was completely improvised with no rehearsals and no second takes. The director, Alain Cloarec, gave absolute freedom to his actors. After the smoke cleared: 25 hours of footage, 3 editors & 6 months of post-production. The film premiered in Dec 2000.
