Its sorta cool seeing who is visiting the blog with the flag counter (so...post a comment already). All right. Here is the update.
Last night I went to the woods where we shot the movie so that Ron would have some 'plates' to put the Garum on. I shot some footage and walked through the scenes so that he could place the creature behind and in front of trees.
And then something odd happened...
I recalled the moment that I scouted that location. No actors, no crew, just me in the woods checking it out and envisioning how the movie would look. There is a log that stretches across a wide path that became Gwen's (Danielle's) resting place. I looked at the log with a bit of sadness. The shoot is over and we won't be back to this place again...
Then I got to thinking about the sword...in the movie, Gwen loses her sword (the one that the Old Caretaker has entrusted to her)...as I watch the footage of Gwen (Dani) trying to find the weapon after the Garum has knocked it from her grip, I felt a certain sadness that I did not expect to feel.
The movie is winding down.
I return the Cursed Canon XL1 to IPFW tomorrow and know that I will not use it again on this project.
All that is left is the SPFX. I will not shoot another frame of footage on this movie again.
I am happy.
I am sad.
