My name is Dane Ohlrogge and I am Assistant Director for The Dreamers.
Yesterday, Thursday September 25th, we shot three scenes totaling about 12 hours of shooting!
We started bright and early around 7:30am to shoot the scene of Kara and her roommate Eliza, played by the amazing Callie Stephens, showcasing the quirky relationship between the two. Here is a picture of Kelsey helping us bring in some lights!
Later that night we went to MorseL restaurant and bar to shoot the final scenes of the pilot in the bar and restaurant area. When the crew got there, we were informed that MorseL was officially out of business and we could run rampant around the place until as late as we needed. As great as it is to be able to freely use a space, we were also saddened by the loss of business that is a local favorite among the crew. We also included an actual MorseL employee, Steven, and his Chihuahua Tamar last minute. The employees of MorseL were very welcoming and we appreciate them opening their establishment to us.
We are officially moved onto post-production for the pilot episode and thank everyone who has donated so far to helping fund this incredible show written and directed by the amazingly talented Kelsey Jorissen. Kelsey has worked her butt of scheduling, emailing, scheming, and memorizing to make this come to life. As an Assistant Director I couldn't be more proud of a passionate hardworking director, and the cast and crew she leads.
Stay tuned for updates about post-production and maybe you'll get to see some stills :)
