Awesome and wonderful day at the film shoot. Just under 12 hours of work with a director who decided that all of the storyboards were wrong and was NOT going to compromise on his vision, even though he didn't really have a clear vision of what he wanted but he'd "know it when he saw it". Aargh.
Fortunalely we had a cute young girl with a lot of patience who became his babysitter and was able to appease him while Tony managed to kick some ass in motivating everyone to get shots.
Twenty-eight different setups, most of which had 4 or 5 takes, some up to 11. Luckily we used "natural" light for a good chunk of 'em, so most of those shots went fairly quickly.
I was fairly happy with the way that most of the shots came out. There were a few that I wan't completely happy with, primarily due to the white walls in the apartment where we were shooting (I hate white walls for lighting), though if I had flags I could have probably taken care of it. As it was, I had to make to with aluminum foil.
And I had no sleep the night before, as I was having to make some adapters so that my equipment would work with the camera, so when I was on set, I was really zoning out a couple of times.
And even with all of the exhaustion and frustration, I found myself having a completely wonderful time. And I made a lot of other people happy.
