Well, I’m slowly catching up on blogs. Saturday April 2nd was our first day shooting “Cowboy Café,” an 18% Productions film by Steve Ohl. On “Cowboy Café,” I’m splitting the duties of 2nd Assistant Camera / Digital Imaging Technician with my friend Peter, and I’m also in charge of editing the film by May 20th (so soon!). We spent the entire day shooting the opening sequence in East Boston on the harbor. It was cold, but the view was awesome and our cast and crew worked great together.
Floyd, right after he got shot in the chest. We had an awesome special effects guy on set. He put a steel plate on Floyd’s chest and then taped a fake-blood filled sack in the center of it. Then he gut a tiny hole in Floyd’s shirt, and during the middle of the take, he shot Floyd in the chest (the reason for the steel plate) with a fake blood-filled BB, which exploded the bag on Floyd’s chest upon impact.
That’s all for now. More pictures soon.
