Ironic that I said I wouldn't put out another super early morning blog again and I do it the very next day. I guess that's life. I just want to get this all down before I forget it all. So today was the first day of filming for trapped in the woods. We are already past where we stopped all those years ago so yay us!
I know what everyone is asking, how did it go? Well we started the day off recording two podcasts. The first was Uncanny fans that will come out Tuesday and it was great. The second was Astonishing Flashbacks but before we finished recording the episode for tales from the crypt bordello of blood my adobe audition that we were recording on crashed and we lost the whole episode. So now we might have to skip this weeks episode, as painful as that is. I'm trying really hard not to skip episodes anymore but this was out of my control.
After that set back I went to set ready to film at 6 like we were suppose to but I forgot that our producer got called into work so she could pick up one of our props. One of my friends was going to get it but he got called away and said he would be right back. It was about 4 or 5 hours before we saw him again. On top of that my camera kept dying due to the batteries that I had for it so we had to wait an hour before my other friend could bring his camera.
This was already a day of hardship since one of our key actors couldn't be there and we had to shoot around her. Today was suppose to be the simplest day of filming and turned into an uphill battle that we almost didn't survive. To top it off I don't think our sound guy turned on the mic so we don't have good sound for most of what we shot. Lucky the camera got sound and we can always ADR but come on! It shouldn't be this hard! At least the footage came out good and my actors came with talent. Day two should be Monday I believe. Let's see how that goes.
