We began the day with a flat tire. Yes, this girl right here changed her first flat tire. Of course thanks to patient guidance of her father and the magic of speaker-phone. Within 30 minutes we had a fully functioning car again. Just in time for a meeting with the crew!
Then after I cooked up all the bacon and the eggs the world could offer for my Director of Photography, Cisco, and my Assistant Director, Dane, we got to work. Lighting the interior of an apartment is challenging work, and after 3 hours of eating almond butter, reading and working the script- we got the shots we wanted. Kitty cat included!
My team and I took a short break to reset before we moved into the gym location where we will be doing a majority of our shooting. Half a pepperoni, sausage, and jalapeño pizza later we were loading in. And at 8:30pm on the mark we called action for our first shot.
Can I take a moment and just say how incredible this crew is? We did 24 shots in 4 hours. Dane kept everyone on point with his stellar organization and spot-on creative eye. Cisco got some incredible shots of our main characters and created the aesthetic tone that THE DREAMERS will continue to use.
