One Night Down, One to Go

Well, I’d call last night’s shoot a success. Granted, we didn’t come close to hitting our planned 11:00 wrap time — well, unless you consider 1:00 a.m. (not including breakdown time) “close.” On the plus side, though, we got some fantastic material, in most cases better than I could have hoped; and this despite the increasing fatigue of folks going through the scenes for what seemed like the millionth time. Both cast and crew were unbelievably helpful and dedicated, particularly given my own frequent uncertainty. We also managed to get all of the shots at that particular location finished, which makes today’s stuff a little less stressful, as we won’t have to go through the whole setup/breakdown there again.

So one more quick shoot this afternoon, and a couple of scenes this evening, and we’ll be finished with principal photography.

And with luck, I’ll get more than the four hours of sleep I managed last night. Before editing begins bright and early on Saturday.

Waiting for the Other Shoe

Am I crazy to think that things are actually going well on this Greenlight scene? I mean, I know we still haven’t completely locked casting decisions, but given the success of this weekend’s location scouts, I’m feeling irrationally optimistic.

Not that I’m planning to get any sleep for the rest of the month, you understand...

Last Call for Stardom

I didn’t want to spam everyone in my address book — a lot of folks just plain aren’t interested — but assembly of cast and crew for my Project Greenlight director’s scene is well under way. In fact, despite its being a holiday weekend, we really need to get most of this stuff finalized by the beginning of next week. Right now, it looks like we’ll be shooting either Thursday or Friday evening (or both, depending on how well we keep on schedule), with editing (and maybe some pickups or even second-unit photography) over the weekend.

So if you want to participate, let me know now! For those of you with my direct contact info (which I won’t post here, obviously), the best way to get me is via my cell phone — I’m largely “off-line” today and across the weekend (I think there’s some holiday or something tomorrow; I really should do something about it). Still, I’ll check e-mail periodically, so if you want in — believe me, we can use all the help we can get — drop me a line and I’ll pass along what details I’ve got.

Okay, so participation might be a little tougher for those of you not actually in the greater D.C. area, but I’m open to suggestions.
