What a difference a day makes. We spent the majority of the day outside, on the beach. What a change from yesterdays all day bathroom/bedroom marathon. And starting with some light scenes this morning solidified my hunch that yesterdays early morning of heavy scenes affected my entire day. I got to some tougher stuff later in the day, but being down on the beach next to the water made it a much easier day to carry.
Jacob Knoll, who’s playing Ronnie finally got in front of the camera today. He’s been up for a couple days, having come up early with his car and picking up some expendables from NYC for us. He’s also shuttling actors around. He’s being a real team player on this. Which is what it takes to make independent film.
I had a couple odd moments today as we were working through some scenes with McCaleb and I. I learned something about the script today. Learned about a very important moment. It’s odd to have written a script thinking a moment is about one thing and then getting on set, in character, and realizing it’s actually something else. It was a pretty strange experience. That said I was very happy with what I found. There’s probably a wealth of gold to be mined as if I was working on this script as a new play.
