Some Behind-The-Scenes Photos From My Movie

Some selected photos from the making of the movie, courtesy of Tim.


This is from Day 3 of the production, probably our easiest day. We were shooting an early scene of the film, where the character Dave gets picked up.



From Day 2. Filming the post-crash scene. Smoke effects were created by large smoke bombs (they looked like big firecrackers). For some of the shots, we may be adding some CGI fire effects.



Also from Day 2, near dusk. Filming one of the last scenes of the movie. Three of the characters, tired, lonely, holding cardboard. I wanted a high-angle shot, which is why the cameraman is standing on my crappy minivan.




Day 2. I would like you to know that despite the fact there was a director chair on set, I never sat in it, nor did I wear my monocle.

I stand in awe of you Splotch.

Seriously- you pursue your dreams. I love that.

Tim said...

Cool. Nice choices. Wish I could've taken more pics, but I was so busy. Glad I got a few, though.

I hope you at least had a beret on your noggin.

Exactly what Fran said. I love this.

And thanks to Tim for the pics.

No monocle? How would they know you meant business?!

I want to see some fake blood

He may not have had a monocle but I have it on good authority he carried a riding crop and gave all his direction through a big megaphone.

Splotchy- I cannot wait to watch your movie! I've been thinking of you as I see this call for submissions for the Austin Underground Film Fest. The guy who runs it is brothers with a guy who's been in some of my classes and is my "friend" online who I've had a little contact with for a past writing project. He's very nice and at the rate you're going, you just might be ready by the deadline.

I could "introduce" you though you probably don't need such things.)
