Day Ten: We’re Wrapped – I’m Wiped
We finished filming today by shooting the final showdown scene of the movie. Everyone drove home around 3pm. And those of us left at the cabin started the long weekend of cleaning up.
The digital files are all downloaded into the external hard drive, and backed up on a second hard drive. The costumes are piled by the washing machine, the props are massed in the corner, the baby chicks are pecking at the sides of their temporary rubbermaid home. The cats are cautiously venturing out from under the beds and exploring the multitude of aromas left behind by the departing film cast.
This movie production is done.
Tomorrow: A trip to show Patrick the beautiful Oregon coast before his flight leaves for Austin on Sunday.
The rest of the week: Sleeping and sorting through the footage.
