It's pitch dark and pouring rain when we arrive for our 6:30 call time, but the actors and crew are in amazing spirits. By dawn, base camp is built on wooden pallets in the mud.
More wooden pallets lead up to set.
There is no electricity on site. So the entire set is run off of three gennies.
300 feet of bates cables lead power up to set.
A 12x12 is thrown over the container to block sunlight.
Set, from the outside. I'll take you inside in the next post.
Paul Sloan, heading to set.
Jon Stokes (me), Brandon Scott. The shoot is a success because the actors and crew stay in amazing spirits.
Pete Sestina (2nd Second AD) and Jon Stokes (me). We have a dynamite crew - everyone is great at their jobs and I am thrilled.
