"That's a currrrrrrrrrrrrrt!!!" - Dotay.

That's a wrap on Sure Thing! Principal photography ended in the late afternoon of this past Tuesday. Picture wrap is always bitter sweet. You're counting down the days for it all to be over so you can rest and bask in the warm glow of progress, but you miss all the people you worked with through the struggle. And it is a struggle to get an indie feature film shot. Sometimes you lose a location, sometimes the scene gets rewritten at the last minute, sometimes communication gets dropped, and sometimes... the scene gets rewritten at the last minute... again. ;)
I can't stress enough how hard this cast and crew worked to bring this film in. For a lot of people, this was their first feature film, but after the second week, you couldn't tell. We had long hours, late nights, a few long commutes, but nobody lost their sense of humor. I had a lot of fun working with this cast and I hope to work with them again. My crew was awesome and I WILL work with them again. If any other cinematographer reading this needs an AC, I have a few referrals for you.
For sound, if you can interrupt his solo career, "E" is your man.
Now we enter the murky waters of post production. There will be pick-up shots and b-roll to shoot, colors to grade, and more ADR than you can shake a stick at. It's a long process, but soon, in a few months, we'll have a screening to share. We'll all point and laugh saying, "I remember that!", or "So that's what that looked like.", and "When can we do this again???"
