Director's Journal - March 26th, 2005
There will still be archived production journal entries on the behind the scenes page, but it has been advised that we start blogging more here as to keep it fresh and new. Plus this is easier and we don't have to bug Wendy to update the site every night. Plus I learned more about pictures. Anyways, here we go.
Production Journal - Saturday, March 26th:
We invaded the very cool theater at Papio South High School. It invoked the cast and crew's own high school memories, which then quickly made us feel really old. Suck. Anyways, it was a 9am call time, which is always fun on a weekend, I'm sure everyone was thrilled with me. SEP veteran actors Diane Watson and Ron Moore were on set today for a scene I've been looking forward to for a while. The scene is a cable news political show called "Political Watchdog" that comes to the campus and Deana and Bonnie Rockwell (aka Ann Coulter-like) battle it out. Fun stuff. Everyone was really on today, it was weird seeing Diane play an antagonist. She's always played a nice character, so it was enjoyable to me having worked with Diane many times to see here play someone the audience is supposed to hate. We had plenty of space to light and we were even able to use some of the lighting and monitor equipment at the theater. Six hours later we were wrapping up. We did some cool stuff shot and sound wise that I think it going to cut together quite nicely. So Webisode 3 is in the bag, we have some fill stuff, but only post is left and it should be in cyberspace shortly. Here's some pics:
Tyson and Chris waiting for me to yell at them.
Big props to the Papio South girls who showed up and were fine extras. You guys rock!
This is a way you shoot a scene, shoot a scene, shoot a scene....(in best singing voice)
Yeah, there's that
