DAY 5

Share

***Late Post***
Day 5 was probably our most successful shoot day yet! We shot and executed with almost instant perfection 10 pages of the script. To place this number in perspective, typically professional film sets shoot about 3 pages a day maximum. And those are 12-15 hour days. Additionally, there are about 120 pages to a script (Lambent Fuse is 106). So, we shot about 1/10 of our entire script in one day. For a really compressed shooting schedule like ours, this day felt amazing to walk off set from.

On a side note, this scene has gone through extensive revisions over the past 2 1/2 years and was one of the hardest scenes to write. Given that though, it's one of my favorites (if not my favorite scene), so I'm super pumped to share it with you all soon enough!

We shot, again, at an amazing location: Ginger Hop. The space really lent itself to the scene. It added the intensity and hidden beauty of the context and content within the scene and characters at that point in the story. We really couldn't have asked for more. Look forward to more posts of upcoming days!
