48HFP - 28 Hours In...

OH MY GOD I AM SO TIRED. We had a 6am cast call, so I've been up since 5:30. I am emptying my 8 gig card, 890+ images (and there at the end I was deleting anything I could tell was crap from the viewfinder). They started out over in the Heights in an old garage/barn/storage thing that someone owns, then moved around the corner to the market there at Heights and 6th, then shot at a building that is being built-out from the studs that is sandwiched between the barn and the marketplace, then finally to an office building over in the Galleria (where they were shooting the last scene when I left them an hour ago).

Let me just say this. I WANT TO BE A FILM NERD. It is SO FREAKING awesome to work around creative people, and the affinity for good lighting gets a cinematography nerd just as bad as a photography nerd. Basically, I stood around with the lighting techs, the director of photography and the director and we snorted and geeked out over the cool set-ups and AWESOME sunset we had today. I am so glad I got to do this.

I'm not the only one who geeked out about watching the filming- Megan and Kip came by to watch for awhile, and Megan was completely intrigued by what goes on behind the scenes of a movie. I think what helped a lot was that Kathryn is the star of the show, the genre they drew was "Film de Femme" so they needed a strong female lead actress. She acted her ASS off, going on only minutes of sleep. I was totally impressed by everyone involved in the production.



I'm gonna take a nap now, until the composer calls me to come shoot him while he is working with the initial cut of the film.
