The reflector came in useful for this shot. Karen could feel the heat of the sun!
My highlighted, detailed shot list and notes. (These were actually the notes from Granny, Does Your Dog Bite, but you get the idea!)
Luke, Seth, and my dad took turns filming a few moving shots that included me.
This was definitely the toughest shot of the movie! As the last scene, I wanted a drive-away moving shot. With all sorts of bumps and ruts in the road, getting a smooth shot wasn't easy! Seth hung out the back door and held the Glidecam HD 4000 for me while I filmed. Luke was at the wheel. After trying several takes with the Jeep, we got the winning take using our Sprinter van. That way, we were able to stand up and hang out the back doors, absorbing the bumps with our knees. All in all, it was quite a feat to keep our outfits clean during the whole process!
Before filming, we moved all the items that wouldn't fit the look we were after.
Inside the vandalized house - because of its age and the vandalism, this house fit the "war scene" feel very well. We were thrilled that we were able to get permission to film in this perfect location!
Filming the night scene was both fun and eerie! I could really feel the music!
Talking about how we should film the next scene...
Preparing mentally before another take...
