Well, folks, the fun never stops here. We have had two crazy weekends of shooting, with six scenes shot and one episode all finished. Now it is off to be edited and the journey to the web shall be complete.
It hasn’t been without issue, both good and bad. I think I will focus on the good to begin with.
Well, Rachel Tharp, aka The Oubliette, has taken on make up duties with her boyfriend Preston at her side. Their work has been amazing, to say the least, and it just keeps making The Last Stand better and better. Wow, did I just mention that there are zombies in episode 2? I think I did! Holy crap, there are zombies in episode 2. Now you have something to look forward to. Let the goo begin.
We locked in some of our big locations, so we rest easy knowing we have those little buggers out of the way. To catch you up, we have secured The Cotton Club, a 1930′s jazz club that has been shut down for decades. As well, we are solid on shooting in The Lotus, a 1920′s hotel that is condemned due to earthquakes will drop it. We get to run and jump and shoot stuff in there. Some more locations are needed, but our biggies are set.
Today, our audio issues couldn’t have been any worse I don’t think. Everything short of real gunfire could be heard. Apparently, Sunday morning is a good time to do heavy construction and train rail repair. Coupled with an increased volume of air travel, geese flying over head, and a band of blind folded Tibetan minstrels being all at peace with nature by ringing a brass bells and hiking up the hill, it made for an audio extravaganza. Yeah Audio!
OK, the compositing should go better!
