Day 2 – Lunch Update

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 5:15 p.m.

Ok lunch break has given me the time to keep everyone posted!  We had really fallen behind schedule around 1:00 p.m.  Kali is extremely detail oriented and wants to make sure his film is perfect.  We are more than sure this film will be perfect but the entire crew (including myself) had lost track of time completely!

Brent being a great Assistant Director had gotten the crew back on track!  Owen and I have been overlooking some of the footage so far and even with a barebones equipment list, Leighton is still able to pull off professional quality images.

Lunch is about to end and everyone needs to get back to work!  Surprisingly, people haven’t fallen asleep while working since the average sleep time for the crew has been about 3 hours.  Check back again!

Day 2 – Way Too Early

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 7:50 a.m.

We ended really late last night just to wake up today at 5 am.  Brent had some car trouble but it didn’t send us behind much at all.  All of us are on an average of 3 hours of sleep but its nothing Dunkin’ Donuts coffee can’t solve.   Leighton and Kali are planning out the shots for today right now.  Cast call is currently 11 a.m. but our supporting actor is coming all the way from Maryland.  We sure hope he’s on time.

Here are some of the remaining photos from the shoot last night.

Day One Update

May 1, 2009

Day 1 – 6:31 p.m.

Rich and I have just completed some number crunching on today’s budget.  Based on what we paid for, large expenses and planned expenses, our film is WAY under budget!  This gives us more freedom to send out our film to festivals around the globe and more exposure for Brotherhood Productions and the crew.

On the production side, we are running some test shots with the new camera, lens adapter and crane.  Right now we are waiting for the sun to set so we can really get the ball rolling on principal photography!

Some photos of the crew are attached below courtesy Teri Jacobs!

P.S. – Brotherhood Productions has an AIM account that Richard and I monitor.  Feel free to IM us at bhoodproductions for a live update!

Great Planning/Busy Is Good

May 1, 2009

Day 1 – 3:13 p.m.

We fell a little behind schedule with Leighton and I picking up our equipment.  Traffic in New York City is awful.  Thank god we we gave ourselves a lot of extra time for prep.  While we were out, the remaining crew set up the room for tomorrow.

Even with the extra time the crew has been staying busy, covering every single aspect of today and tomorrow.  Owen and I have been doing scheduling and logistical work, making sure every mistake can be repaired.

Derek McAlister came in to rehearse for Sunday’s shoot.  Kali says “He’s just an amazing actor.”  Kudos to Brent for pointing us to backstage.com.

Everything is still on schedule, I’ll keep you posted!

Paul!

Happy Johnny Day! We have been working on “Johnny’s Leaving” all day long. Kali and Teri have been working vigorously on Art Direction while Leighton and I are nearly done building our tracking dolly.
Right now, I am writing this from our shooting location. Kali, Leighton, and Teri are scouting out the rooms of the home so set up on our first day of production is flawless.
We labeled today “Johnny Day” because we planned our entire day around pre-production. Quite clever from T.Jacobs! Here are the photos of the crew working and some shots of our shooting location. Enjoy!
