Delivery re-shoot weekend

September 29th, 2011 ~ 10:02 pm

Bryan and Adam decided to rewrite 2 scenes and add some more small ones after seeing the rough cut.  Of course the 2 scenes they rewrote were two of the most intense scenes in the film, so I knew it was going to be a heavy weekend.

Our call time was 12:30, which worked out great because I got an audition that morning even though I had booked out before.  Guess it was a good call on my agent to submit me anyway.

A lot of what we were doing were personal video diary segments where we have a little flipcam and are talking to the camera as part of the reality show.  After I did one of those we did one of the re-shoot scenes with some of the other characters.  We ran through it a bunch of times to try different takes on it.  Plus we’re improvising dialogue so there are a lot of ways to do it.  They had 2 cameras  so they can edit it pretty easily.  It felt really good though and I think it will work better than the original scene.

Later we re-shot a bunch of stuff in the very end of the film, which is the most intense scene for everyone.  This time, obviously we all knew what would happen and it was more about getting it to feel real.  It wasn’t drastically different than the original, but made a few key changes.

There was one more flipcam they wanted to do, but we wouldn’t be able to reset my makeup, etc. without it taking forever, so they cut it.  Then we got out at 11:30!  Under 12 hours! Nice!


Sunday was also a 12:30 call time.  that day was all either flipcam or ‘surveillance’ footage.  We did a pretty awesome new scene that I can’t talk about.  I guess there isn’t a whole lot I can talk about in detail, but it went smoothly and we finished at 11:30 again!  Yay!

Oh- Both Adam and Danny’s babies showed up to set, but at different times, so we couldn’t have a baby fight.  But man are those cute babies.  Speaking of Babies, my sister gave birth to a baby on Saturday (in China!) so it was a super baby-filled weekend!
