Week of the frenzy!

Well, with Sunday being our production shoot, we are pretty busy in final prep mode. Last night we completely re-vamped the shot list correcting the errors that we found on it last Sunday and re-arranging the shot order to better facilitate the lighting that nature has so graciously provided us on our outdoor location.

The stupid AC is out in our apartment so my desire to work on a rough cut from the rehearsal last night was minimized at best, but I did get a chance to tweak it a little bit :) I think it's going to be a real hoot.

We went to a fabric store last night and bought some sheer black fabric that we are going to try to use to knock down some of the blown out background. You can see an example of what we are dealing with here:




That is one of our crew, KC, sitting on one of the 2 benches that we are using for the shoot. Tonight we are going to head over to a local park and test the fabric. Nancy is going to set it up so that it slides onto PVC pipes so we can set up a little frame/holder for it.

In other news, some of you may know that I am an HD advocate (what a shock!). There is a great interview with the owner of HD net over at HD beat. You can read it here.

Note to self: We need to clean the bird crapper, I mean the bench before shooting.

Oh so you're a HiDef junky? MosDef coincidence... FedEx just delivered me a 27" HD ready TV/Monitor TODAY. A little compromise/gift from the company that built our sunroom. Nice of them? Maybe. Personally, they are probably hoping it will slowly kill us with those electromagnetic rays.

See you kids on Sunday! Sunday! SUNDAY!
