CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Tiny Dominique Carino stood in the middle of the second floor hallway at the University of Charleston's pharmacy school and bellowed, "Quiet! Be still!" and then, "Rolling!"
Others repeated her words and passed them down the length of the building.
For a few moments, almost everyone on the floor shut up and stood still. The film crew looked around sheepishly and waited. Minutes ticked by, and then finally, a single word came across the 19-year-old production assistant's radio.
Carino shouted it, gave the all clear signal and everyone had permission to breathe again. Motion returned to the space around the set of "Another You," an independent film that's been shot over the last few weeks in and around Charleston.
The film, which stars Ksenia Solo ("Black Swan" and SyFy's "Lost Girl") and singer/actor Diego Boneta ("Rock of Ages"), wrapped principal photography in Charleston Thursday afternoon.
"Another You" is about a young woman's obsession with a boyfriend and the mistakes they made in a relationship.
The film is a passion project for Christopher Robert. The Philadelphia-born writer/director most recently worked as associate producer on the romantic comedy "The Big Wedding," starring Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton, which is in theaters now.
Robert said "Another You" is about connections and second chances.
"It's about love and more than that, about right and wrong."
Robert said the idea for "Another You" came from the years he spent at Villanova University as an undergrad and observing the relationships that he and his friends found themselves in. Love was always very dramatic, but very fragile.
"We were all living in sort of bubbles," he said. "There were always factors outside our control, things pushing and pulling and ultimately tearing apart those relationships."
"Another You" takes a science fiction turn when the woman discovers a way to explore the mistakes she made.
"And then we go down the rabbit hole of obsession and try to discover if love is enough," Solo said.
Josh Foglio, the line producer for "Another You," said he and the producers of the film chose West Virginia because of the experience they'd had making J.J. Abrams' "Super 8."
The Weirton native, who worked on the 2011 sci-fi thriller, said, "Everyone was just so welcoming. People were just very generous and just very different than what they were used to in Los Angeles."
It made an impression -- and so did the tax credits offered by the state through the West Virginia Film Office.
"The film office was great," he said. "They were so willing to help."
Aside from helping the producers apply for credits, the film office was able to suggest locations for the crew to make their film.
Scott Castleman, UC's communications director, said the film office contacted the school to see if they were interested in letting Pennsport Media shoot the film on their campus.
