Day 5 was rough (maybe would call it a disaster) - maybe one day the wounds will have healed enough to discuss more throughly but at the moment - it's keep my mouth shout 100% or blow my top... And let's face it sometimes discretion is the better part of valour...
Day 6 however was great - at the start of the night we had 16 pages to get through unfortunately because our shoot had to change back to days from nights we had to wrap at 2 am at the latest.
In the end we chose to drop one of the three scenes we were due to shoot and concentrate on the others. We managed to crack through 10 pages in 5 hours and it went swimmingly - especially considering they are two of the toughest scenes in the whole film.
Day 7 could've caused a mutiny, going from nights to days on only 6 hours rest is very fucking brutal and it's never a good idea - but due to the events of day 5 this was the situation facing us. Fortunately the mutiny was averted due to the fact that we were shooting in a strip club. Tired is tired but titties are titties. The afternoon was supposed to feature two hookers in bed with one of the characters... unfortunately one of actresses suffered a family bereavement and had to drop out. amazingly one of our runners, nicknamed Clooney (after you know who) managed to recruit an actress from the street who was willing to step in... She was AWESOME too and we hope to work with her again.
Day 8: the final day of principle photography - the one day we couldn't have rain. Well guess what the fricken weather forecast was for rain, rain, torrential rain and more rain! We got through the day - when at times I didn't think we would. I guess that makes yesterday a microcosm of the whole shoot - against all the odds we DID it.
A few pick ups to go and then lots of post-production to go - with more updates along the way... Stay tuned and check out the Facebook Pissheads page for more pictures.
Will try our best to keep this busy during the shoot and post-production.
