Finally, we’re almost there! Only a few short months to go until SON is unleashed!
We’re slaving away down in the forges at 88mm Productions to finish up this new feature, but in the meantime, here’s a little eye candy!
Shooting in remote locations is a great way to get amazing stuff for your film, but it also presents unique challenges for filmmakers in general. If it’s not cows and horses casually walking through a scene that gives you a migraine, the god-awful sound these creatures make when they realize you are not there to feed them will wreck any chance of getting good sound. Even with these interruptions, we finished up around halftime on Sunday and got some really great footage!
Filming on the Old Chain of Rocks bridge during Eagle Days in January is a pain in the ass. Every last bit of equipment had to be carried up by hand on the ice covered bridge. The wind was relentless and several of our actors nearly froze to death. Shot after shot was ruined by pedestrians looking for eagles. But we got what we came for, dramatic shots in a dramatic location.
