He came walking onto the set in what looked like a $3,000 suit. His shoes were shined within an inch of their lives. Not a hair was out of place. The man looked precisely like the polished public figure he is. All true, except that San Francisco’s Public Defender is a lot more than that. When he works the room – or in this case, the set, which consisted of Dearborn Alley in the Mission District – you get the distinct sense he really enjoys meeting people. His hand goes out, his gaze is true and perhaps most of all, he listens. It’s an impressive sight. And then he stepped in front of the business end of our camera and delivered his line. We were shooting a PSA in support of his upcoming re-election campaign. He didn’t write the brief bit of dialogue, but it sounded as though he had. All the beloved director had to do was yell, “Cut.” On occasion, I’ve had the good fortune to work with a number of bona fide stars. This past Saturday was one of those occasions.
