Cast Is Here!

May 2, 2009

Day 2 – 11:25 a.m.

Our primary cast has just arrived on time!  Brent (Asst. Dir.) has been running through lines for 20 minutes.  Shooting is still on schedule for 12:00 p.m.  Photos of the cast in full wardrobe will be up soon!  Kali, Teri, Jon, and Leighton are completing the last details on the bedroom which looks fantastic already!  Teri has done an excellent job as Art Director!

Owen is transferring all of our footage from last night.  Even without an assistant, Leighton has been on point.  Our crew is the perfect example of diligence, hard work, and unity.

Our philosophy of the day is brought to us by filmmaker David Lynch who wrote, “I’d like to say: I deeply love film; I love catching the ideas; and I love to meditate.  I love enlivening unity.  And I think the enlivening of unity brings a better and better life.”  Perfect for our crew!  Even though we are on only 3 hours of sleep, we continue to strive on!  Still have a long day ahead of us, check back for more!

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!

The First Posting!

April 10, 2009

Welcome to the Brotherhood Productions blog!  Here we will be posting all types of updates on pre-production, production and post on all of our work.  We’ll also keep you posted on any updates with our crew, website and any events.

Last week we just had our fundraiser event for our first production “Johnny’s Leaving.”  Held at Gallery 61 in South Orange, everything was more than fantastic.  Here are some of the photos, taken by Frank O’ Leary (another South Orange based artist).  All of the photos will be posted soon on our website, http://www.brotherhoodproductions.tv
