Today we have a 'turnaround' day before we commence a couple of nights of shooting. Everyone tries to sleep through the day (like a vampire) and then work til dawn. My thanks to production designer Carey Rothman for delivering a great crossroads for our finale. Its very gloomy and atmospheric, especially considering its out on the backlot!
Anyway, we dig in for a long night...
This is the first night shooting for my friend Michael Gleissner, the driving force behind Bigfoot Entertainment. Mick is typecast in our film: he plays the devil... He turns in a wonderfully satanic performance, I think this part came a bit
too easily to him!
Tonight also sees my son Calvin go into action against Sable: his first movie, his first fight scene and his first night shoot... What was I thinking?
My thanks to Taeki Gong (who we killed off in the opening scene) for returning to us to help choreograph the action.
I should give a shout out to the backstage crew who keep us going through the long dark hours.
Amid all the flash and glamour of the movie industry, no-one ever talks about the sheer grind of the early starts and late finishes...
