May 31st, 2006: Day 11

You know, it's funny to read what I wrote back then.  When you're exhausted and the only thing you want to do is go to bed, it makes for surprisingly candid writing.
The eyes, and then the paint...

May 31

Another day of night shoots. Train shots.

Lot of lighting. Lot of compromise due to the fact that the train is so close to the camp—we had to cheat it all like it’s out in the middle of nowhere. The crew has been slacking the past couple of days. Jaimie doesn’t do much; Mike’s decent if you keep on him. Jared’s the only clear winner—he knows what he’s doing and is assertive.

Luke and Jamie almost get in a fistfight. Jamie says Luke threw a rock at him. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind seeing them both punch each other for a while.

Jared Noe, almost worth a shit

The train stuff runs late because we have to mount the crane on the back of Rob Stull’s pickup truck to get it high enough that it can go in the train’s window. Then a lot of lighting and coordinating.

Then the woods stuff runs late. Getting power out to all these woods locations takes a ton of time, then we have to run through the blocking. It’s the scene where Jacky runs full speed and falls. We used a large sofa cushion for her to fall into, and it looked great. I just have to digitally take the cushion out later.

We get to the final Peters scene late and barely get 10 shots before it’s light.

We go to Bob Evans for breakfast—back at the hotel at 8am.
