Area 51?

I mentioned in my previous post that we found and area of the forest with a path made by a bulldozer...well it turns out that we had wandered off of Kevin and Denise's property and onto someone else's (which I had assumed but did not want to admit as the location was too sweet to pass up). Tonight I met with Kevin and he told me that the next door neighbor was making walking paths through the forest and he hoped that it wouldn't mess up our filming. I told him that it solved another location scouting session and he just rolled his eyes. Then he told me that the land was owned by some really cool guy and he would probably have no problem with us shooting on his 25 ACRES OF LAND!!! Our location just expanded by 25 acres. I'm pumped to do some more location scouting as some of these trees are REALLY old. Any way, Kevin then asked if we needed a fire. I asked why. He answered, "because I have a huge pile of brush that needs to be burned." I smiled. "Our film has a large 'thing' on fire near the end of the film." We could use a large fire. He grinned and then said, "you're sick."

It's always good to get new locations, that dense forrest just got denser. How are you doing for light under the trees, do you have any additional light or reflector boards?

I have reflector boards on back up, but we haven't had to use them yet. But now that we are going deeper, we might need them. It's a fantastic location. We are going to need to buy more hose, though.

'We're going to need a longer hose!'

Wasn't that a line from jaws?

How much hose do you have now? How much more are you going to need? Do you need to rent a water truck? Why don't you just film in the rain? I am full of many questions.

Well if we don't get the lighting just right, I can pull the shot into After Effects and pull out the highlights and make the scene appear brighter, you know the way it should have been shot.

"It was at that point, your honor, that I shot Ted!"

We have about 150 feet of hose. 100 more would be ideal...

I think the line from Jaws was 'we're going to need a bigger horse.' I could be wrong.
