Shooting Day 18: Triad Take Down

September 30th, 2007 · No Comments

I had no idea we would get so involved in the final scene. I figured I would walk into a room with 8 guys, mow them down, maybe fight one or two, but Micah had something way more elaborate in mind, which is awesome. I did a total of maybe 7 action bits at various […]

Shooting Day 17: Rolling The Dice

September 29th, 2007 · No Comments

First thing today was a scene in the gambling den with Marshall and Trey. Marshall’s this big dude who teaches escrima and kung fu. Really nice guy. Paul slept through all of this at Micah’s. His neck is fine. Went out to a factory and did Annie’s scene. The place smelled awful. I guess the […]

Shooting Day 16: Moo!

September 28th, 2007 · No Comments

First thing today was a small action bit. Woke up at ten, and drove out to the outside of the studio where I dressed up as a bum and fooled this guy Nick into giving me ten bucks. Not really ten bucks, but I did manage to shoot him dead. We went into the studio […]

Shooting Day 15: Elvis’s Lineage… Sorta

September 27th, 2007 · No Comments

Went to Somewhere Else Tavern where we shot a small dialogue scene. They had a dog there that was really cute, and from what I could understand, apparently the dog’s lineage comes from Elvis’s dog. Went to a cool deli that was really colorful. It reminded me of those play places when I was a […]

Shooting Day 14: Reality Revealed

September 26th, 2007 · No Comments

Today was easy. Woke up and watched Animatrix with Ray. Headed out to the underground area of a club to shoot a small scene where I do a disarm on Andrew. Came back here afterward, watched Man Bites Dog (more below), and then went to a smoke/punk/hippie shop to do a 5-line dialogue scene. Andy […]

Shooting Day 13: The General Fight

September 25th, 2007 · No Comments

Started the morning out by going over to Blake’s place. He cooked us all some mean omlettes. His daughter Lilly is 2 years old I think. She’s adorable. She liked it when I ate a banana and acted like a monkey. What a guy. Went out and did the dialogue with Vladmir. Either my new […]

Shooting Day 12: Warehoused

September 24th, 2007 · No Comments

Drove to the location with Ray, Huyen, and Minh. Learned that there are Vietnamese dialects and that Northern Vietnam isn’t as upfront as Southern Vietnam. The location is a furniture warehouse. We had to wait around until 4pm to start the buildup to the fight. Did a little bit of action with Ray and Randal, […]

Shooting Day 11: They Are Kung Fu Fighting

September 23rd, 2007 · No Comments

I drove out to Raleigh. Got to the kung fu school and found that Ray and Brian were having some difficulty getting their fight scene done. Ray busted his nose and had 2 huge bruises. Micah gave me control over the camera and the three of us went to work. It’s all a blur now, […]

Shooting Day 10: Running Around

September 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

The front desk gave us our wakeup call at 7:15 instead of 7:45. Thanks. We wake up and get breakfast in the lobby. Blake drives us to the location out in Raleigh. Turns out we were late, as were practically all the other cast members. I’m not sure if it was my fault or the […]
