Because Rebecca has already posted about our day of filming, I don’t know how much more you want to hear about behind the scenes, but I’m going to write about it anyway.
We had a concept that we were going to go out and film, but we ran into a major obstacle of the cold weather and the ice outside.Â After a long lunch of brain-storming on a new idea, we went over to D.I. to see if we could find something to use as a prop to inspire a new story idea.Â Zach and I found a broken TV they were trying to sell for parts and I fell in love with the TV because there was something about it that demanded our sending a projectile through the screen.Â Thus the basis of our story was born.Â We had to somehow create a need to destroy the TV.Â Â David found a hat that he wanted to use as a TV technician, so we found our need for a TV repairman.Â Â After that we threw everybody else in to satisfy the film requirements of making a sacrifice to the downtrodden by Ben sacrificing his TV money to those who needed it more than he did.
Filming began and we were off to film our outdoor scenes before the sun went down.Â Macey’s was gracious enough to allow us to film in their parking lot.Â Zach and Austin were great.Â About the time we ran out of sunlight, we finished filming our last shot outside.Â There were a couple more shots I would like to have gotten, but they weren’t essential so they were easily skipped over.Â We headed back to our condo where we made an absolute mess of the houseÂ by moving the furniture around and we banished Rebecca and Brooke to the bedroom to quietly watch Wall-e.
Editing was the hardest part because even though it was fairly early in the evening, it felt like it was midnight.Â I was also desperately needing to get to bed because I had to be up the next morning at 4:30.Â The editing was finished at around 3:00 and I dropped in bed only to wake up long before I wanted to.
