One of the happy coincidences of To Rest in Peace was my reconnecting with Mohammad, a cousin of mine I had not seen in years. The last time I remember seeing him was in Kuwait, when we were young teens. He called me out of the blue a couple of weeks before production, and said he was interested in helping out.
Mohammad was amazing to have on set. He was there every day, working hard at everything he was given. Production Assistant, Art Assistant, Stand-in, C-stand.
At one point he brought his video camera along, and got some great behind the scenes footage. Some of it is up on his blog, freemind82.blogspot.com, and some of it will be reserved for the DVD extras. My favourite is the cute "roller coaster" video.
