Apologies for the hiatus. We've been burying ourselves in post-production and things are coming along swimmingly. Every waking moment is spent editing, discussing the edit, discussing music, listening to music, planning remaining shoot days, and shooting remaining shoot days.
Yesterday was a nice change of scenery as a few of us returned back to the trenches to shoot a day of B-Roll and some inserts we needed to pick up. In preparation, Alex, David, and Raff scrambled together a few needed props and wardrobe items that would feature on screen. It was kind of fun to revive these small elements of our film's world. Specifically, it felt great to wear my character's comfortable shoes (nurse shoes) for one more day. We hopped into a convertible that Ryan borrowed and made our way over to Zak where we dragged him and his camera out of bed to go shooting. Zak procured a wheelchair from a nearby friend and we were off.
The whole day had been mapped out in a specific order based on importance of the shot, sun light, and geography. We used the wheelchair to get some quick rolling inserts to be intercut with one of our steadicam sequences. The convertible also proved to be a huge asset as we could shoot from the car as we drove from point A to B. In fact, with three locations to shoot on the Upper West Side, we never even got out of the car. The overall route was: Midtown, Times Square, Upper West Side, East Village, and Greenwich Village.
It was nice to be back in production mode, and not terrible stressful with only four people, a convertible, and a gorgeous day. Last night, the footage was transcoded and today it will be spliced into the film. I've been wanting to get this shoot day done for some time now and I'm eager to chop it all together to enhance the edit.
