Went down to the crossroads...


 

Long night's journey into day #1

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...

Running from daylight...

Poor Calvin. How'd he hold up? This experience may change his mind about having an acting career. I always thought night scenes with little background were done on sound stages but during the day. Interesting.
