What's up Blueroof Nation? I know it's been a couple of days since I've posted anything and I'm sorry about that. So let's get busy on the catch up. When last I left you, I was telling you about the concert on Thursday where I lost my keys. The next day was Friday and we were once more on set for Trapped in the woods. I called off Uncanny Fans and Astonishing Flashbacks this week so that we could get a lot done. I'll post an old episode of Wolfcast that Lawrence was on where we talked about movies so that we don't miss a week. But I called them off so that we could get some of the day scenes done before going back out to the woods. Once more things did not go as planned. One of our actors had to miss the first scene so we couldn't film it. Than he called and said he could and it was a big mess. Turns out he couldn't make it on time so I cancelled the pods for no reason.
We went out to the woods and started filming the big scene we missed last week. We only got the first half done before our star and producer got into a screaming match and we all had to go cool down. It was an interesting turn of events but it didn't end the night. We got back to work and were making good time until the generator started humming and we had to call it off. This coming up weekend was supposed to be the cabin scenes but instead we are trying to finish the woods. Hopefully we can.
Saturday was supposed to be the last day of Larry's film as well. Almost everybody was there. One of the actors who lives in Austin was running a little late so it pushed stuff back a little but once he got there we blew through that scene. It came out really good. The next scene is where we started to run into problems. We couldn't find a room that looked right. It ended up taking us hours just to get set up. Once we got the room and set it up the scene wasn't bad so we moved on to the cages. The hot cages that made you feel as if you were going to pass out and die. Everyone was uncomfortable and we all knew that we had the biggest scene in the movie coming up next. We were trying to get the cage scenes over with as quickly as we can while still being good. I took the wide shot and first close up and Larry took the next close up. We only had three more close ups to do. I was filming Larry's when I noticed a spot on the lens. Turns out it was on the sensor and we had to refilm all of the cage scenes. We didn't have time to film the last scene so that got pushed back a couple of weeks. I'm hoping I can make the shoot it just depends if we are filming that day for Trapped in the Woods.
