Filmmaker Russ Harbaugh '06 on 'Love After Love'  
 
Actress Andie MacDowell (left), on set wtih Harbaugh, thrived in such improvisations. 'You have to be willing to do that to get the good stuff. I never wanted them to find jokes or to get above what was happening. I just wanted them to respond to the situation honestly. Improvisation is like acting without a net, and it can be awful. The actors who are really good – Chris and Andie were like this – know that you embrace that it’s going to be bad a lot of the time, but then you’re going to get that one take, that fifteen seconds, that’s incredible.'
