Day 8 of Day 2

Tina Tanzer as "Laura" on the run from giant robots. Today Tina took great delight in teasing me about an old girlfriend I was talking about who I dated, and broke up with, before Tina was born.

And yes, we got that shot at magic hour. It lasted a good six minutes. We got the wides and the closeups before we were out of light.

Nat Cassidy has gone to the other side. We're shooting way past our light here and so I'm shooting 1600 ISO and a shutter speed of 10(?). Ooh wait, it says right here in the metadata. It's 1/5 of a second at f4. Hey, I've never really used that feature before. That's kinda neat! I'm kinda dorky.

The triptych here is David Ian Lee, Tina Tanzer, and Tom Rowen.

Tina Tanzer, a target for terrible trajectories of tunnelling titanium.

We're a day ahead of schedule and we keep adding shots (and scenes). Today the Queen of Mars had to leave to go stage manage Neo-Futurists right in the middle of our shoot and believe you me, as soon as she left the set slowed to a crawl.

I feel like this is the most fun I've ever had on a picture. Normally I have a good time and there's lots of positive energy abouts but this movie I'm just enjoying more. I'm feeling more comfy in the directing "chair" (since when does a director ever get to sit down???) and I'm very happy with how the movie is coming out.

I'm really looking forward to seeing it edited.

I think that on Monday I'm just going to go ahead and order that Magic Bullet Steady (because my handheld work could use a little help.)

Plus we gotta make about 50 more stills from the timeline of Clonehunter in order to make delivery.

Lastly I want to put all our music library on Maduka's Mac so he has the option to put in music as he sees fit.

We're back at it tomorrow. More fun. We're shooting 2? maybe 3? fight scenes? Who knows? We'll just do it.

I need more crazy, Drew. This blog has started to seem a wee bit tame in recent days...

I gave you that picture of Nat, what more do you want?
