Due to a scheduling conflict we lost our
cinematographer through the middle of the day. The team pressed on and did
great job following Dutch's technique very closely.
My Escher moment...
The story was written to cover every square inch of
The Hobby Stop. This scene between Colin and John Rutland is in the pits.
The difficulty with shooting under a roof outside is that the actors and local
props are relatively dark while the background is almost blown out. Due to
the amount of data captured, the Red camera makes this relatively easy to
correct by placing a notch on the low end of the gamma curve to bump up the skin
For some reason Graham kept shouting "Cut! Print it!!!" during this scene.
It made everyone uncomfortable so I sent him inside...
Colin showed up with an "I'm the Star!" attitude, so I demoted him to 'Worker
Bee'. Sure it presents a continuity problem but sometimes a director has to put
an actor in their place.
With this scene shot, Alex is wrapped for the shoot. Alex did a great job
peppering Willey's dialog with ad lib material, and the last day he did
bang up job.
