I don't have any pictures of day 4. That was the most difficult shoot so far. It was in downtown Decatur and, besides directing the whole thing, I also had to coordinate traffic with police officer Chris Moffett (thank you officer). So, there was no time for pictures, but my friend Joseph Frank took a lot of behind-the-scenes video footage, so we'll be able to see all the crazy things we did some day. He also drove Angelina that day as a double for Kevin. My colleague Stephen Johnson drove the camera truck, which doubled as a safety car.
|I asked Ryan to stand-in to check the light and the framing of the very first scene. Eventually, we added a light in the room at the back to both give more depth to the scene and get rid of some of the green cast.|
|For sure Gwendoline had much more fun that day.|
|Actors Gavin Henry, Nathan Couch and Michael Felts.|
|Kevin and "his" five sons. I asked them to act badass for this picture and they complied...|
|And, finally, the whole gang (except Gwendoline, Joseph and myself).|
On day six (last Sunday), the crew was down to its bare bones: camera, sound, one actor and director. Somewhat it was a bit of a relief compared to the previous days, but the heat was so bad that I think we ended up much more tired than in the previous shoots.
|Seth and Ryan.|
|Tom Kennelly and the hearse. We definitely need to find a name for that hearse, which by the way is provided by Reynolds Funeral Home. Another big thank you to owner Mr. Dexter Elliott.|
|The moment I saw Tom coming into the room where we had the casting sessions, I knew he was THE MAN for the job.|
