Shooting Days 1-2

Eli here. It’s been quite the two days. We’ve had early morning call-times, 12 hour days, and most importantly – a lot of fun! We’re practically halfway through principal photography and everything is going fantastic. We had a few road bumps along the way (several crew members fell out at the last minute), but a few really amazing filmmakers came to the rescue to round out a fantastic team. We have 3 more days of filming and I’m certain these days will go just as smoothly (knock on wood).

Sure, I can go into the technical specifics of the entire two days, but something tells me most of you don’t care about which lens we used or how Brian achieved a light set-up (aside from the occasional filmmaker). That being said, I have a feeling the film will speak for itself.

Anyway, as much as I’d like to divulge more, my alarm went off at five this morning and I’m falling asleep. This is a narcoleptic update... I don’t even have the energy to finish this

Location - Park

Finding a park that's remotely interesting and fits the "look" we had in mind was actually quite the task. However, finding the park wasn't the most difficult part. Finding it was easy. It was figuring out how we were going to stage the scene that caused the most confusion. Since I really wanted a location that was adjacent to trees while Amorette rested on a bench, we had to intricately adjust the frame and blue print a plan for the camera movement. Here's the location we scouted. I'm confident, during principal photography, we'll answer the aforementioned concerns satisfactorily.

The Park: I really love how much character this park has. Everything from the unique trees, to the plush grass, to the wooden bridge. I loved it at first sight and can't wait to shoot there!

UPDATE: The Park location has been scrapped for a lovelier setting. The exterior of the house which is just as exquisite, and much less costly.
