A bit rusty on the CAD program, particularly since they made some changes to the user interface going from version 9 to 10 pro. And now they have a version 11 pro. Last night was primarily designing concrete blocks of the various configurations that I need, figuring out how to do them with 2D boolean operators (way cool!), and creating a block library. It means going back a step, but it clarifies the drawing considerably.
Of course it means I was up way too late, and I fell asleep in the shower this morning. For like a half-hour. How can I afford this rock & roll lifestyle?
Likely will spend this weekend doing concrete work, if the weather holds out. I need to get it done. And I need to design and build a couple of lighting fixtures that I can use in the hey-you-have-no-time-to-set-up-lights-bu
The color correction is likely to be a bitch though. Compact fluorescents aren't generally color corrected, and they're a really sickly green. The correction for that is a magenta filter, which is really funny considering my history with unexplained magenta light sources.
This means finding more translucent white cloth, and likely some sewing. And I'd like to have these done before shooting the bar scene, because avindair wants a really quick in-and-out shoot. If I had more time, I'd set up some little kickers to accent things. It's a dark bar with a lot of little reflective stuffins, and a bunch of kickers would let me pinpoint things really well. I'm betting I won't have time, so I want to get the best lighting that I can in the guerilla atmosphere that I'm unfortunately getting used to.
Some time in the future, I will have the time to light scenes properly.
