Revisions

April 9, 2009

I revised the script again.  Basically, I rewrote the flashbacks that happen late in the movie, when Shooter is bleeding to death.  They never really worked, especially the one where Angel and Archie are sitting in Shooter’s back seat.  It was supposed to show Shooter going crazy, but no one ever got it.

So, I combined that with Angel bleeding to death, which plays much better, I think.  I changed the location of the gambling scene, because Curt told me about a more appropriate place that was available.

Lastly, I wrote a whole new scene where Archie introduces Shooter to Angel.  I like it, I think, because it shows a different aspect of Angel and Shooter’s relationship.

I’ll upload it later today, so you can read it yourself.

First Shot!

April 1, 2009

As expected, Saturday’s test shoot went swimmingly.  The security camera footage looks great:

Bang!

Bang!

Angel's a badass.

Angel's a badass.

Interestingly, I had not intended to see Angel’s face in the security footage, but I really like that they shot it this way.  This is why you need a fantastic crew– they tend to have better ideas than I do.

On a side note, the guy Angel shoots is named “Drost.”  In any script I write that involves someone being killed, I always name that character after an old roommate of mine, Shawn Drost.  He gets a kick out of it.
