Dang Eugene! Take care of yourself! That IS a crazy story. Sucks about the boots on the cars. Man. Production is WAR. You're in the trenches. Really hope you are feeling better and that you don't go through the same thing again. Keep shootin', Tex.
Im plodding along on my new project. I am finding that some are not in tune w/ my methods. I do a lot of improv cuz i never know who will show up or how good they will be. Many times I give a script and they do not learn it or they are flat in my opinion, so I work with them on the set. I call it rolling rehearsal.
I got a good performance out of this feller, her was reading the script as he was going, it worked as a prop. I shall place the actress on the other side of the door in the final edit. I shall make it sound duller like it is being heard from the inside.
Cool thing was the apartment complex was a crack-infested dump and i was totally cool and did not freak out .. no ambulances were called at all !! Yeayyy !
Im kinda stealing..ok robbing from David Lynch, throwing in elements of my life ( the circus midget orgy scene is awesome ) << Ok not really.. I am making this flick as I roll. I have "The Story" and we improv & I adjust the performances as we shoot. I want power, emotion and passion to come out. I hope my flick will get someone's attention and simply entertain.. so we shall see.
YES, I am hoping for peaceful shooting, but as Flicker stated..IT'S WAR ! and many elements are against me, so I have to work hard long and tirelessly to make this happen.
YAYY ! Man this is tough stuff, but I got it ! My kill the hooker scene in downtown houston that is .
Here are some screencaps of the fun. Just playin w/ it color wise.. I do want dark and Im ok w/ the grain, this will add to the effect when the girl kills the hooker. Ahh the life of an Indie filmmaker..beautiful women doing whatever I tell them to. My life is doin fine !! LOL
and a surprise behind the scenes pic

Here is some ROUGH stuff from my Hooker scene. I have more coverage and more angles also will edit to cut out some lines that do not fit. Also will use totally different music I was just playing with the Perspective and it did not look good, but here it is anyhoo. This was shot downtown Houston.. the streets were LOUD. I used a Lav Mic & an Olympus VN-8100PC digital recorder for dialog. the dialog starts at 1:30
I love the look and the Olympus doesn't disappoint. I've only used that method indoors and it sounds better outdoors for some reason. I wish I lived in Houston to help out in some way and be a part of it.
