The DePaul Art Museum was kind enough to let us in at 8:30am, so the alarms didn't go off. As much as my crew and I wanted to stage a museum heist, we knew filming was our priority today.
Location fee: 75$
On set we had the fabulous talents of Tosha Fowler and Will Von Vogt, two actors that I met through my alma mater at DePaul's Theatre School. They are both fiercly talented performers and bring the opening moments of THE DREAMERS in with a bang.
It's nearly impossible for me to pick a favorite moment from today, but if I had to it would be when we had our Director of Photography, Cisco Corral, being pushed in a wheelchair (otherwise known as a poor-man's camera dolley,) across the gallery for our tracking shots. Dane Ohlrogge, who worked second camera for us today, was wheeling Cisco back and forth about 30 times. I couldn't stop giggling, but we got the shot we wanted!
Director of Photography: 100$. Second Camera Operator: 50$
After we got the shots our hearts desired we realized we were famished! None of us had eaten because we were too excited to take a break. When we got that last shot for the day our tummies were rumbling. Hellooooo Trader Joe's Snackies.
And when we got back to watch the footage we got today we saw we hit 416$ here on Seed and Spark.
Your contribution: Priceless.
Keep on spreading the word for THE DREAMERS. Help us break even on our next shoot, and even better help us reach our goal by Nov 1st!
