Well it was bound to happen...

We had our first bad day of shooting. I was tempted to cancel because I just had this bad feeling about it this morning...I'll post more later. For now, here are some pictures by Lana Mabbit. Oh, check out our official site here.

Here I am with Danielle about to ask her if she can put a little emotion into the scene where she finds the fur vest of her mentor, the Old Caretaker. It is covered in blood and she stumbles across it while Garum hunting...just as I'm about to ask her for a more emotional run of it, she asks if she should be more emotional. She nailed it.



Here is the sequence.




Danielle had to run and fall. We made her do it three or four times. The last take rocked...Ted called a while ago to say that the tape was screwed up and none of the footage worked for this shot!





I remembered to get Danielle warm water for her hair when she is deep in the forest.

Danielle is a real trooper, she hides her deviant nature well too so she's used to acting :P

Sorry I missed out on Sunday, I had intended to show up but was under the weather over the weekend.

Bad luck on the screwed tape. It does happen with those mini DV tapes, even with the expensive ones. Hope you're able to capture the moment later.

We should be able to make it up, it was a short scene to shoot, luckily. And, yes Danielle is a trooper, I am surprised she hasn't gotten sick yet, from being warm to cold, and vice versa.

Jonzig: Get well!

Lauren: Thanks. At first I was worried we were posting too much, but the feed back has been great!

Michael: Yeah, it's the first time we've had a tape go bad. Part of the problem is that the camera was used by a lot of people and some of them probably never should have even been breathing in the same room as that camera. When I got it, there were several things I had to fix on it.

They are pretty robust though, those canon's. Just run a head cleaning tape through a few times and kick it.
