My original plan was to have the actors use blindfolds that they could see through. Once we started shooting, however, I realized that it was more believable if they could not actually see and I directed them from off camera...some, who have seen the footage, have questioned whether the actors can see or not. After the last shoot, the question has been answered. Adam came out and was a tad more theatrical then I had expected him to be. He flung his arms out wildly and missed Sally and Stephanie's faces by a few inches with sharp wooden knives...the crew gasped...I almost needed to check my shorts. Sally and Stephanie did not flinch...at all.
