We are running a bit behind.
The other night we were racing against the rising sun, trying to get all the night shots we needed. We spent the better part of 8 hours watching a stunt woman get pushed off a balcony. However, the sun came up just as they were setting up for the final shot of her landing in the bushes. So in the final film she will get pushed off the balcony at night and faaaaaaaaaaall, then land in the bushes the following morning. It will be great.
We might have to reshoot that scene.
We have moved inside this week, onto a set. This is when it starts getting good. The past two weeks we have been shooting the first act of the movie, when all the Pretty People are still pretty and innocent and smiling. From here on out there are going to be less and less Pretty People and more and more blood and screaming. Good times.
The guy who is playing the ax murderer is the most excited of all. He has been hanging around the set for the past two weeks, just waiting to chase people with his ax. He has his costume and his ax and his menacing walk. Now he finally has the Pretty People to be a menace towards.
But he’s going to need to hack them quickly – as we are running behind schedule. None of this dilly dallying around the corpses. One quick chop and be on your way, we’ve got more scenes to shoot.
