Day One: Sunshine
A moody, gloomy movie set deep in the dreary rain forest cannot be filmed in brilliant, streaming sunshine.
And we had a gorgeous day today – for everyone else.
We moved into the shade, and then waited for sunset, to get most of the shots today. There is a series of shots of one character prowling the forest alone that we’ll pick up another day.
Otherwise it went well. Handsome Mat Bostrom chopped firewood in his tight fitting tank top, and mysterious Stuart Bennett scowled menacingly. Great work, guys!
Today was intentionally scheduled lightly, to work out any equipment issues or other problems. Tomorrow morning begins at 8am just as a heavy storm sweeps in from the Pacific Ocean. We’ll be working in the rain the next several days, which is exactly what the movie needs.
