So the shoot ended at around 11pm on Sunday night, I relaxed watching Caroline in the City until 3am and then settled into bed. I slept for 14 hours! My phone has been acting weird so i didn't hear any of the calls that had been made to me. I woke up on my own at 5pm on Monday (which was a school holiday). I didn't want to end up nocturnal so I decided to stay up all night and today so I would go to bed early. I stayed up watching movies -- I watched Bram Stoker's Dracula on Netflix -- and making a sketchbook for an ArtHouse
project that needed to be mailed today. I got it done and then I went over some homework to make sure I was up to date. I have a paper due next week and a model of a stage due this Thursday. This week is going to move reallly fast since I missed Monday. It's a little sad because I feel like I need to catch up on homework but I also have to touch up props that broke this weekend and make more.
Now I am in a kind of writing mood. I am having trouble working out a plot for a play I am writing.. I don't want to force it.
I just got back from late night, where I stacked an ice cream cone with three scoops. 2 parts Dulce de Lech and 1 part Strawberry Cheesecake. I might be replacing friends with food -- that's what Adam thinks anyway XD I think I am replacing friends with work and stress ^^;;
On another note, I have pictures of the shoot!Check it out!There's more here!
For those of you too lazy to look aty a full album, here's some favorites--
My director Jonathan -- "Hey! Hey Heidi! We're making a moooovvvviiieeee!!!"
My producer Andrew --
Costume Designer Kelly -- She's a big "Malice Mizer" and Visual kei fan. She went to A-kon last year and will be there this year!
1st day of shooting -- All the equipment we had to haul everywhere! We rented a UHaul
The props storage table in which we take the props needed for that day -- the foreground is all a side view of the portegraphs I spent a lot of time making!
This is the space we shot in on Friday before everything was set up. It is an unused art classroom.
This is a picture of the dolly track and that's the set on the left. The costume designer is doing some last minute adjustments between shots.
That's me getting his kneepads to stay with Velcro. He is an actor in da movie~!
That's Isaac our Sound Designer and Robot Electrician reaching up the robot's tutu to hook the cables that will make the face work. He would of course apologize later for the embarassment. The robot is afterall, a boy.
This is us fitting Nathan in his Robo costume a couple nights before the shoot
Our robot boy - Nathan - is boldly walking to the gas station to buy a snack. We discovered he can't walk down stairs. When people asked "Why are you dressed like a robot" he said "A robot can't choose not to be a robot on a certain day. This is how he is." Some people he told them he was the new campus security-bot. I would love to explain the tutu, but I'd like you to see the movie. It has to do with the story.
Our cinamatographer Chris leads Robot to his place -- the actor can't see at all except out the side, which is not reliable. It looks like they are dancing.
Robot gets adjusted and ready for the shooting. Here you can see what his face looks like. It is a wireless reciever of another actor's face who is sitting off-camera with a tiny camera infront of his face.
Here is the robot's face actor at his spot --
This is actually all the compenants for the second scene we shot that day. It is a singing part so we played the music and the actor lip-synched what he had previously recorded.
The same scene from off-camera
This is the main character Kendra all decked out in her gear. Take note of the portegraph on her belt that I slaved over. (j/k =P) Behind her is the Kitchen set from Saturday's shoot.
This is the character Cassidy. She's a bitchy secondary character, but her costume is really hip.
And that's all for now. There are plenty more on the albums I gave the link for. They are all really cool, but I didn't want to bore you too bad. The pictures from Sunday aren't up yet, but as soon as they are I will post them. There is a character that is dressed like Gackt and I want to show him off.
