Production Day Seven

Monday, Dec 27

Lincoln and Cortney graciously took time during the Christmas/New Year week for some more pickups. Spent afternoon with Lincoln shooting suburban details in and around Belvedere, and got some great late-afternoon-light shots.

Capturing Suburbia

Then we met Cortney back at the scene of the crime, Betsy and John’s house, to get the opening shot of the movie, which meant me driving slowly up and down the street with Cortney shining a Dedo light out the car window (attached to a very long extension cord!) to get the perfect headlights-on-ceiling shot. After that we went upstairs to reshoot the dream sequence, this time hand-held. Lots of complicated lighting and elaborately choreographed shadow movement, so it took a few hours, but we got something great.
