Finished Shooting Awake

February 19, 2010

Well, that was quick.  We’ve already shot Awake.  Three days, each well under twelve hours.  That’s what happens when you have a DP who’s quick, a makeup artist who’s efficient, and actors who know what they’re doing.

This weekend, I’m passing the footage on to the editor, Blake Hill.  Let’s see if he can keep up the pace.

Awake Update

February 11, 2010

Well, it’s been a couple busy weeks.

First, we cast the leads for Awake:

Aren’t they ridiculously good looking?  Don’t worry, JJ is making them look good and ugly for the film.  🙂

We actually shot our first few scenes last weekend, at Melissa’s house.  It went well, and we shot out three pages in under six hours.  (If your wondering, that’s very good.)  Melissa’s lighting is the perfect combination of natural and scary.

Next weekend will be tricker, since we’re doing the day scenes.  Sunlight is very difficult to control when you’re on a tight budget with a limited crew.  After last weekend, though, I have every confidence it’ll turn out great.
