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 face [...]

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, got [...]

It’s all a blur now, [...]

Shooting Day 7: Clubbing

September 19th, 2007 · No Comments

Oh… my… god… I’ve never had this much [...]

Spent the whole day at the kung fu school doing dialog scenes, training scenes, and fight scenes. Did a couple new stunts. One where I fly over a wall, land on some kicking bags, and HK spin off them, and another where I jump back and land on some pilates balls. Blue ones. Yes blue [...]

Let The Shooting Begin

September 16th, 2007 · No Comments

We started shooting Dogs of Chinatown on Thursday September 13th. Day one of shooting was one of those easy days of production. Micah and Eric ran around Greensboro and took care of the scenes where other actors were not needed. A good time for Micah and Eric to get to know one [...]

Shooting Day 2: Reign On Me

September 14th, 2007 · No Comments

Went out to an abandoned metal scrapyard … with no metal, and shot a scene with Patrick. Guy was awesome, from New Jersey. I got to point a gun around like a little kid, all the while watching the road and hiding whenever a cop drove by. Everyone kept telling me to chill out. Not [...]
