"Camera rolls!"In production on "Sure Thing"!


So we're smack dab in the middle of production on "Sure Thing" directed by Bobby Mercer. I've been trying to keep up with "work in progress" posts & photos on facebook, but the birth of my first child, little Xavier, has taken up all free time and most of my sleep. I've gone a solid week without having even turned on my computer, much less check emails and respond to text messages.
With a free moment on my baby feeding shift, I thought I'd get in a progress post. We've been in production now for 3-4 weeks and the cast and crew is a well oiled machine. That's not to say we don't have our hick-ups every now and then. We all know every production has them, but throughout all adversity, this crew has been knocking it out of the park from day 1. Well, ok, day 2. We had a 4k downconvert and wireless transmission problem, but we're good.  :)
We start day 20 of shooting tomorrow. We've finished a lot of our big locations, but the heavier scenes are now upon us. More set-ups, crane shots, dolly moves, gimbal choreography, car stunts and company moves. It's a lot of work, but this cast & crew will handle it. On some jobs, the more tired you get, the less ambitious the crew is in their shot choices. Difficulty factor doesn't matter. The audience doesn't care how long it took to do a set up, or how long the camera guy had to hang off the side of a bridge to get the shot. The shot either looks good or it doesn't. I'm very excited with how ambitious Bobby and this crew is. We aim to bring in a damn good looking film at the end of all this. I just can't wait to get to post production!
