Set Report - April 11th 2009
Yesterday was Anthony's (Fish) first day of filming, and our first day filming in the day without snow! It went wonderfully well.
We filmed downtown (those of you who live in state, see if you can guess where!) in a lovely, lovely park and had lovely, lovely weather.
Because of the sun, we had our first use of a reflector - I don't know if we got any pictures of that or not, but I hope to get more actual filming photos up soon. That includes pictures of Hannah (Blanche) applying a scar to Anthony's face. ;)
I was extremely impressed by both Sharayah (Rose) and Anthony. I've seen them do this scene before, but never to this level. Seeing Rose and Fish really come alive...well, it was amazing.
^ That's madame director (moi), directing, producing, filming, holding the mic, AND taking care of Anthony's glasses.
And then below you can see the issues that Sharayah had with the heels of her boots. She had to do most of the scene with a broken heel.
